#1. All love, all real, life-changing love, is substitutionary sacrifice. You have never loved a broken person, you have never loved a guilty person, you have never loved a hurting person except through substitutionary sacrifice. - Author: Timothy Keller
Broken Person quotes by Timothy Keller
#2. Gods not looking for the next great Preacher or worship leader he is looking for a BROKEN PERSON WHO WILL BE FOUND IN THE PLACE OF PRAYER!!!!! - Author: Joe Joe Dawson
Broken Person quotes by Joe Joe Dawson
#3. Unfulfilled dreams, ongoing relational tension, the loss of friendships, a hard marriage, rebellious teenagers, the death of loved ones, remaining sinful patterns - whatever it is for you - live long enough, lose enough, suffer enough, and the idealism of youth fades, leaving behind the reality of life in a broken world as a broken person. - Author: Tullian Tchividjian
Broken Person quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#4. I'm a deeply broken person, and broken institutions fascinate me. - Author: Paul Haggis
Broken Person quotes by Paul Haggis
#5. She told me to picture little Georgia, at five years old or so (when this behavior was learned), and imagine calling her a "stupid fucking idiot" for making a mistake. It made me want to cry. Five-year-old Georgia doesn't deserve that; she deserves understanding and patience and to know that mistakes can be made without them making her a broken person. And so when I berated myself for that wrong turn, I was perpetuating the narrative that Georgia doesn't deserve to be treated with kindness. Even though I didn't start it, the only person who could stop that cycle was myself, and a great way to do that was to picture myself as a little kid when I was being cruel to myself. It's taken some time, but I've definitely been kinder to myself since I learned that. - Author: Georgia Hardstark
Broken Person quotes by Georgia Hardstark
#6. And please, before you say anything, never underestimate a broken person. We're unpredictable, because once you're broken - what's one more crack? - Author: L.J. Shen
Broken Person quotes by L.J. Shen
#7. I am a broken person. And I know exactly where my cracks are and how deep they run. I don't pretend to not be a broken person and therein lies the big difference. Because the truth is, we are all broken in places, but it is those who know exactly where and how they are broken, who also know exactly where and how they are whole! And we may not be whole in all places and in all ways, but we take whatever wholeness that we do have, and we make good of it. And we try hard to work on the broken parts, and we ask for help when we need it. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Broken Person quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#8. A broken person understands she needs rescue, and she depends on God to resurrect and deliver. And she also understands that even if God chooses not to deliver, His ways are higher and more amazing then what we can fathom. - Author: Mary E. DeMuth
Broken Person quotes by Mary E. DeMuth
#9. We are quick to stick labels on others - especially those who don't fit in with the norm. 'Harold Fry' is about a broken marriage; 'Perfect' is about a broken person. They are both about finding kindness where you least expect it. - Author: Rachel Joyce
Broken Person quotes by Rachel Joyce
#10. The urge to change my mind and not go at all is enormous. I'm absolutely terrified to leave on that boat. But, if I don't go, there'll be one more broken person in this world who gave up a dream to sit in a chair, pick up the TV remote and shrink. - Author: Lexis De Rothschild
Broken Person quotes by Lexis De Rothschild
#11. I also know how little it takes to break a broken person. - Author: Tanya Marquardt
Broken Person quotes by Tanya Marquardt
#12. Broken people are beautiful. They have to put themselves back together every day. - Author: Robert Tew
Broken Person quotes by Robert Tew
#13. Many of the gay Christians I was in conversation with were not demanding wholesale movement to a fully affirming and inclusive stance. There were those who were uncertain of such a stance even for themselves. What they did desire was space, a safe space without judgment, accusation, condemnation, assumption, and rejection. They desired a generous spaciousness to embrace authentic faith while engaging the quest for an honest, godly, and fulfilling life as a gay person. - Author: Wendy Vanderwal-Gritter
Broken Person quotes by Wendy Vanderwal-Gritter
#14. The arts are obsessional, and obsession is dangerous. It's like a knife in the mind. In some cases - Dylan Thomas comes to mind, and Ross Lockridge and Hart Crane and Sylvia Plath - the knife can turn savagely upon the person wielding it. Art is a localized illness, usually benign - creative people tend to live a long time - sometimes terribly malignant. You use the knife carefully, because you know it doesn't care who it cuts. And if you are wise you sift the sludge carefully ... because some of that stuff may not be dead. - Author: Stephen King
Broken Person quotes by Stephen King
#15. Right now we're both yard sales of emotions. A penny for pain. A dime for bitterness. A quarter for grief. A dollar for silence. It binds us together, but I don't want him to pay the price for the parts of me that are used and broken. - Author: Courtney C. Stevens
Broken Person quotes by Courtney C. Stevens
#16. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you're trying to steal their most precious possession. - Author: Jim Morrison
Broken Person quotes by Jim Morrison
#17. Sleepless nights
Spent looking at the ceiling
Searching in those etched patterns
For some sort of adhesive
To glue together the broken pieces
Of a soul crushed
By the weight of the fact that
Life is profoundly sad. - Author: Justin Wetch
Broken Person quotes by Justin Wetch
#18. My dad always told me that holding a grudge is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die. - Author: Anna Banks
Broken Person quotes by Anna Banks
#19. Words, words, word. Once, I had the gift. I could make love out of words as a potter makes cups of clay. Love that overthrows empire. Love that binds two hearts together, come hellfire & brimstone. For sixpence a line, I could cause a riot in a nunnery. But now
I have lost my gift. It's as if my quill is broken, as if the organ of my imagination has dried up, as if the proud -illegible word- of my genius has collapsed. - Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
Broken Person quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#20. Will Smith is a funny person, a very likable person, but at the same time he can be serious and really handle his business. I'll stay away from talking about his rapping abilities, though. - Author: Colin Kaepernick
Broken Person quotes by Colin Kaepernick
#21. My innocence is not lost - it has been converted into wisdom. The sensation we call "breaking" is the pain that comes from resisting the truth. Life broke parts of me that needed to fall away for me to live an open and truthful life. - Author: Jewel
Broken Person quotes by Jewel
#22. Had he not been certain, only a few years ago, that the elevator did lead somewhere? Somewhere beautiful? He wondered how many times a person could be wrong about something so important. - Author: Hannah Heath
Broken Person quotes by Hannah Heath
#23. Once I could see Mom for who she was, and not the mother she had failed to be, I'd be able to forgive her. She was her own person, not just my mother, and it was this person I was forging a relationship with. - Author: Rachel Sontag
Broken Person quotes by Rachel Sontag
#24. From the vast, invisible ocean of moonlight overhead fell, here and here, a slender, broken stream that seemed to plash against the intercepting branches and trickle to earth, forming small white pools among the clumps of laurel. But these leaks were few and served only to accentuate the blackness of his environment, which his imagination found it easy to people with all manner of unfamiliar shapes, menacing, uncanny, or merely grotesque.

He to whom the portentous conspiracy of night and solitude and silence in the heart of a great forest is not an unknown experience needs not to be told what another world it all is - how even the most commonplace and familiar objects take on another character. The trees group themselves differently; they draw closer together, as if in fear. The very silence has another quality than the silence of the day. And it is full of half-heard whispers, whispers that startle - ghosts of sounds long dead. There are living sounds, too, such as are never heard under other conditions: notes of strange night birds, the cries of small animals in sudden encounters with stealthy foes, or in their dreams, a rustling in the dead leaves - it may be the leap of a wood rat, it may be the footstep of a panther. What caused the breaking of that twig? What the low, alarmed twittering in that bushful of birds? There are sounds without a name, forms without substance, translations in space of objects which have not been seen to move, movements wherein nothin - Author: Ambrose Bierce
Broken Person quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#25. You are not broken. You are not a problem to be solved. Solving your "problem", whatever you perceive your problem or problems to be, is not the key to happiness. - Author: Golda Poretsky
Broken Person quotes by Golda Poretsky
#26. I've always known my dad is a one-off and his own person. But I feel that underneath he has always loved me. - Author: Alfie Allen
Broken Person quotes by Alfie Allen
#27. That amazing moment when your crush has a crush on you. It's a wonderful feeling knowing that the person who you want to be in a relationship with likes or loves you back. - Author: Piers Morgan
Broken Person quotes by Piers Morgan
#28. [A]t bottom, and just in the deepest and most important things, we are unutterably alone, and for one person to be able to advise or even help another, a lot must happen, a lot must go well, a whole constellation of things must come right in order once to succeed. - Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
Broken Person quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#29. A wrong is just wrong no matter who's doin' it or who it's done to. You know someone's doin' wrong and even if it has not one thing to do with you, you do what you can to right that wrong. You don't, you're no kind of person or, at least, no kind of person I'd wanna know. - Author: Kristen Ashley
Broken Person quotes by Kristen Ashley
#30. The dead are mute, but the living still have voice with which to protest their innocence. Often their objections are noisy and pious, impossible to refute since the person who could condemn them has been silenced forever. - Author: Sue Grafton
Broken Person quotes by Sue Grafton
#31. It was painful, exceedingly painful, to know that they were under obligations to a person who could never receive a return ... "
The paper fell. It was a limited edition of Pride and Prejudice. "You, you gave me-"
"Mr. Darcy." Wes whispered in my ear. "As you can see, I also memorized some lines so that you'd swoon. - Author: Rachel Van Dyken
Broken Person quotes by Rachel Van Dyken
#32. If you turned a Labrador into a person you would make Brad Kline. He's happy and gushy and about as interesting and complex as a tree stump. - Author: Andrea Portes
Broken Person quotes by Andrea Portes
#33. He is tangled in Isabelle's arms, he is curtained by Isabelle's hair, he is touching Isabelle's body, he is lost in Isabelle, in her smell and her taste and the silk of her skin.
He is onstage, the music pounding, the floor shaking, the audience cheering, his heart beating beating beating in time with the drumbeat.
He is laughing with Clary, dancing with Clary, eating with Clary, running through the streets of Brooklyn with Clary, they are children together, they are one half of a whole, they hold hands and squeeze tight and pledge never to let go.
He is going cold, stiff, the life draining out of him, he is below, in the dark, clawing his way to the light, fingernails scraping dirt, mouth filled with dirt, eyes clogged with dirt, he is straining, reaching, dragging himself up toward the sky, and when he reaches it, he opens his mouth wide but does not breathe, for he no longer needs to breathe, only to feed. And he is so very hungry.
He is sinking his teeth into the neck of an angel's child, he is drinking the light.
He is bearing a Mark, and it burns.
He is raising his face to meet the gaze of an angel, he is flayed by the fury of angel fire, and yet still, impudent and bloodless, he lives.
He is in a cage.
He is in hell.
He is bent over the broken body of a beautiful girl, he is praying to whatever god that will listen, please let her live, anything to let her live.
He is giving away that which is most precious to him, - Author: Cassandra Clare
Broken Person quotes by Cassandra Clare
#34. A bore is a person who lights up the room simply by leaving it. - Author: Laurence J. Peter
Broken Person quotes by Laurence J. Peter
#35. D.C.'s a tough place to get love unless you're from D.C. It's like everybody hates you here. The only black person that everyone can agree on is Obama. - Author: Wale
Broken Person quotes by Wale
#36. Throughout my life, my mom has been the person that I've always looked up to. - Author: Mike Krzyzewski
Broken Person quotes by Mike Krzyzewski
#37. I've seen enough death."
A single angel rose in the darkness from the circle they'd formed around the Qayom Malak. "If she can't do it, she can't do it."
"Shut up, Cam," Arriane said. "Sit down.
Cam stepped forward, approaching Luce. His narrow frame cast its shadow across the Slab. "We've taken it this far. You can't say we haven't given it every kind of shot." He turned to face the others. "But maybe she just can't. There is only so much you can ask a person to do. She wouldn't be the first filly anybody lost a fortune on. So what if she happens to be the last?"
His tone did not match his words, and neither did his eyes, which said with desperate sincerity, You can do this. You have to. - Author: Lauren Kate
Broken Person quotes by Lauren Kate
#38. Grace is not a theology. It is not a subject matter. It is not a doctrine. It is a person, and his name is Jesus. That's the reason the Lord wants you to receive the abundance of grace, for to have the abundance of grace is to have the abundance of Jesus. - Author: Joseph Prince
Broken Person quotes by Joseph Prince
#39. One of the characters in our story, Gavril Ardalionovitch Ivolgin, belonged to the other category; he belonged to the category of "much cleverer" people; though head to toe he was infected with the desire to be original. But this class of person, as we have observed above, is far less happy than the first. The difficulty is that the intelligent "ordinary" man, even if he does imagine himself at times (and perhaps all his life) a person of genius and originality, nevertheless retains within his heart a little worm of doubt, which sometimes leads the intelligent man in the end to absolute despair. If he does yield in this belief, he is still completely poisoned with inward-driven vanity. - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Broken Person quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#40. to be more confidence you need to give a whole lot less of a shit about what other people think of you

Confidence is not something you feel or possess, it's something others use to describe what they see when they look at you

Forbid yourself to wonder what "they" are thinking

Confidence is a reduction of your own interest in whether others are thinking about you and if so what they're thinking

You are the only the person you actually are; you may not may not be the person they actually want

Because all of us are made not only of what we have but of what we lost.

And loss is not a subtraction. As an experience, it is an addition.

You do not need to work through your past so you can heal. You need to move forward and then you're as healed as you're likely to be

Pain can make you want to die. Discomfort can make you want to kill. Chronic discomfort itself can be deadly

Letting go of a dream because it cannot be yours is not failing.

If you have children and your spouse is abusing them physically, mentally, or sexually, leave now.
It never takes courage to leave.
It takes love.

..everything there is was born from a collision.
Inside every single thing that lives is a debt to a distant star that died.
Nothing new is ever created without one thing colliding into another - Author: Augusten Burroughs
Broken Person quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#41. Right,' he said. 'So it stands to reason there's something about the line that fortifies or protects a corpse. The soul. The ... animus. The quiddity of it.'
'Gansey, seriously,' Adam interrupted, to Blue's relief. 'Nobody knows what quiddity is.'
'The whatness, Adam. Whatever it is that makes a person who they are. - Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Broken Person quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#42. And I didn't yet understand that just because you can recognize what another person wants and just because that person is older and more powerful than you are, you don't have to give it to them. - Author: Curtis Sittenfeld
Broken Person quotes by Curtis Sittenfeld
