#1. As long as we string out the ecstasy of awe, we won't do the work required to mine its precious teachings. - Author: S. Kelley Harrell
Initiatory Wound quotes by S. Kelley Harrell
#2. My dearest brother," Marjorie replied with a sorrowful smile. "I am only sorry your heart has been broken."
"Cassius was right to refuse me," Merrick replied even as the words ripped the fresh wound along the seams again. "He was only protecting himself. His reputation."
The words stuck in his throat. Had Merrick thought about the repercussions, he would've chosen a different route last night. He would not have done it so publicly perhaps, for Cassius's sake, no matter what they'd whispered to each other their last night together.
"I do not care who knows. It is only the harm it could do that holds me back. If I could, I would walk proudly by your side."
But what then? It was a jumbled mess no matter the outcome.
Marjorie shook her head. "Cassius was protecting you. That much was evident."
The words only warmed Merrick for a brief instant. He knew Cassius cared for him. But now he understood that the idea of them being together was only a fool's wish, no matter how many times he recited the words of Cas's poem from memory and wished them true with all his might - Author: Riley Hart
Initiatory Wound quotes by Riley Hart
#3. I have to finish what I started. I'd have had that beast on my spear by now, except for Prince Meleager. He saw me wound it and thought I was in danger. The gods protect me from men who mean well! - Author: Esther M. Friesner
Initiatory Wound quotes by Esther M. Friesner
#4. Victims of abuse, your trust has been violated and corrupted. It will take time to heal this wound, be patient and brave. - Author: Tracy Malone

#5. It flattered her, where she was most susceptible of flattery, to think how, wound about in their hearts, however long they lived she would be woven ... - Author: Virginia Woolf
Initiatory Wound quotes by Virginia Woolf
#6. Closing down in the midst of pain is a denial of a man's true nature. A superior man is free in feeling and action, even
amidst great pain and hurt. If necessary, a man should live with a hurting heart rather than a closed one. He should
learn to stay in the wound of pain and act with spontaneous skill and love even from that place. - Author: David Deida
Initiatory Wound quotes by David Deida
#7. She helps me to the bathroom, helps me wash, then helps me put a gazillion tangles in my hair while she shampoos it. And she actually thinks we're going to leave it that way.
"I'm not going downstairs looking like a hobo," I tell her. "We have to comb it."
"That thick mess will break this flimsy comb. Can't you just run your fingers through it?"
It's weird to be arguing about my hair when we still haven't discussed my wound, how I got it, and how I came to be snoring in Galen's bed. We both seem to appreciate the bizarreness at the same time. Mom raises a brow. "Don't think you get special treatment just because you can make a whale do the tango. I'm still your mother."
We both laugh so hard I think I feel a tiny rip in my newly dressed wound. Without warning, Mom throws her arms around me, careful to avoid touching it. "I'm so proud of you, Emma. And I know your father would be, too. Your grandfather can't stop talking about it. You were amazing."
Ah, the bonding power of tangled hair and dancing whales.
She releases me the second before it gets awkward. "Let's get you dressed. We have a lot to discuss. And I get you're starving. Rachel made you…uh…Upchuck Eggs."
"She gets an A for effort. - Author: Anna Banks
Initiatory Wound quotes by Anna Banks
#8. Sitting on the divan, she touched a finger to the bullet wound in his chest. It seemed so small, so incapable of creating the exodus of blood which had drenched his clothes and skin as he lay in the hospital, waiting for her to claim him. Death has been instantaneous, they said, as if there were a relief in that. She did not want death to have been instantaneous; she wanted to have at least held his hand as he lay dying and said goodbye to him in terms other than the, 'Why are you doing again? You'll find nothing. Stay. Oh all right, go,' that had been her farewell to him that morning.

Stay. Stay. Stay. She should have repeated it like a madwoman, banged her head against the wall in a frenzy, hit him and wept. She should have said it just one more time, just a little more forcefully. She should have taken his dear, sweet head in her hands and kissed his eyes and forehead. Stay. - Author: Kamila Shamsie
Initiatory Wound quotes by Kamila Shamsie
#9. Poetry is not the opinion stated. It is a song that appears instead of a bloody wound or a smiling mouth. - Author: Khalil Gibran
Initiatory Wound quotes by Khalil Gibran
#10. I'm afraid it won't stop, and all my bones will disappear and one day I'll just dissolve. I won't be able to stand up anymore, or move." She looked into Clara's eyes. Clung to Clara's eyes. "Mostly I'm afraid that it won't matter. Because I have nowhere to go, and nothing to do. No need of bones." And Clara knew then that as great as her own grief was, nothing could compare to this hollow woman and her hollow home. There wasn't just a wound where Laurent had once been. This was a vacuum, into which everything tumbled. A great gaping black hole that sucked all the light, all the matter, all that mattered, into it. Clara, who knew grief, was suddenly frightened herself. By the magnitude of this woman's loss. - Author: Louise Penny
Initiatory Wound quotes by Louise Penny
#11. Do you remember the sight we saw, my soul,
that soft summer morning
round a turning in the path,
the disgusting carcass on a bed scattered with stones,
its legs in the air like a woman in need
burning its wedding poisons
like a fountain with its rhythmic sobs,
I could hear it clearly flowing with a long murmuring sound,
but I touch my body in vain to find the wound.
I am the vampire of my own heart,
one of the great outcasts condemned to eternal laughter
who can no longer smile.
Am I dead?
I must be dead. - Author: Charles Baudelaire
Initiatory Wound quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#12. She still loved him, she would always love him, but it was the kind of love that was muted, safely seen through the rear-view window, like a place you used to call home but no longer visited. There would always be a wound there, but the healing had begun. - Author: Melissa De La Cruz
Initiatory Wound quotes by Melissa De La Cruz
#13. As an individual with my own hurts, I go into the Garden (Gethsemane) as often as I need to. There I identify with the pain in the other, with my part in that pain, my part in tempting someone to wound me. I experience the other's pain, and God's pain, and am devastated - because their pain becomes my own. Feeling such anguish, I can forgive, or deeply repent, either for myself or on behalf of the other. - Author: John Sandford
Initiatory Wound quotes by John Sandford
#14. Not all kisses heal an open wound. - Author: Giovannie De Sadeleer
Initiatory Wound quotes by Giovannie De Sadeleer
#15. My hands learned how to bleed when other kids tried to make him into a wound. - Author: Elizabeth Acevedo
Initiatory Wound quotes by Elizabeth Acevedo
#16. The Ulfric had waded into the pack with my blood in his hands. They surrounded him, touching him, caressing, begging for him to share. He dipped his lingers in the nearly empty cup and held them down for the wolves to lick.
Edward came to stand near me. He said nothing, just helped me put pressure on the wound, got more napkins from under the bar and a clean cloth to tie it tight. Our eyes met, and he just shook his head, the faintest of smiles playing on his face. Most people pay money for information. - Author: Laurell K. Hamilton
Initiatory Wound quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#17. Clarissa thought that was the problem with toothpaste, it always wound up looking like it had a drunken binge the night before and was spitting up all over itself. - Author: Vera Jane Cook
Initiatory Wound quotes by Vera Jane Cook
#18. The smoke! The golden smoke!
His robe whipped upward, turning him until his face was directed downward into the abyss. With his gaze on the depths, he recognized a maelstrom of boiling rapids there, the mirror of his life-precipitous currents and plunges, all movement gathering up all substance. Leto's words wound through his mind on a path of golden smoke: "Caution is the path to mediocrity. Gliding, passionless mediocrity is all that most people think they can achieve." Moneo fell freely then in the ecstasy of awareness. The universe opened for him like clear glass, everything flowing in a no Time. - Author: Frank Herbert
Initiatory Wound quotes by Frank Herbert
#19. Crimson covered Her chest, Her throat spread wide like a mouth, and he clutched the wound.
"She's bleeding! - Author: Jenna Moreci
Initiatory Wound quotes by Jenna Moreci
#20. Betrayal is the deepest wound. Betrayal is what remains of love, when love has gone. - Author: Joyce Carol Oates
Initiatory Wound quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#21. Most women like to fuss around a wound of your past, pick at the thin scab, comfort you after they'd made it sting. Not Nell. - Author: Lily King
Initiatory Wound quotes by Lily King
#22. Literature is a wound from which flows the indispensable divorce between words and things. All our blood can flow out of that hole. - Author: Carlos Fuentes
Initiatory Wound quotes by Carlos Fuentes
#23. Why haven't we had sex in six days?"
"Because you have a bullet wound."
She cocked her head. Devin braced himself for the barrage of bullshit she was about to spew. "Last I checked, I didn't get shot in the pussy; I got shot in the arm. And since you're not into armpit fucking, there shouldn't be a problem." Her gaze dropped to his crotch. "Or is there? - Author: Lorelei James
Initiatory Wound quotes by Lorelei James
#24. The infinite capacity of humans to wound one another without meaning or wanting to - Author: Margaret Laurence
Initiatory Wound quotes by Margaret Laurence
#25. In the first gospel, Mark, the risen Christ appears physically to no one, but by the time we come to the last gospel, John, Thomas is invited to feel the nail prints in Christ's hands and feet and the spear wound in his side. - Author: John Shelby Spong
Initiatory Wound quotes by John Shelby Spong
#26. Master of beauty, craftsman of the snowflake,
inimitable contriver,
endower of Earth so gorgeous & different from the boring Moon,
thank you for such as it is my gift.

I have made up a morning prayer to you
containing with precision everything that most matters.
'According to Thy will' the thing begins.
It took me off & on two days. It does not aim at eloquence.

You have come to my rescue again & again
in my impassable, sometimes despairing years.
You have allowed my brilliant friends to destroy themselves
and I am still here, severely damaged, but functioning.

Unknowable, as I am unknown to my guinea pigs:
how can I 'love' you?
I only as far as gratitude & awe
confidently & absolutely go.

I have no idea whether we live again.
It doesn't seem likely
from either the scientific or the philosophical point of view
but certainly all things are possible to you,
and I believe as fixedly in the Resurrection-appearances to Peter and

to Paul

as I believe I sit in this blue chair.
Only that may have been a special case
to establish their initiatory faith.

Whatever your end may be, accept my amazement.
May I stand until death forever at attention
for any your least instruction or enlightenment.
I even feel sure you will assist me again, Master of insight & beauty. - Author: John Berryman
Initiatory Wound quotes by John Berryman
#27. Following her instructions, I joined her in the chopping and mixing. The magical smell of pickling spices wound around us and it wasn't long before we were in another world. I was suddenly immersed in the hand-written recipes Mother resurrected from the back of the Hoosier cabinet--in the cheesecloth filled with mustard seed and pungent dill. As we followed the recipes her mother had followed and her mother before that, we talked--as the afternoon wore on I was listening to preserve the stories in my mind. 'I can remember watching my grandmother and mother rushing around this same old kitchen, putting up all kinds of vegetables--their own hand-sown, hand-picked crops--for the winter. My grandmother would tell her stories about growing up right here, on this piece of land--some were hilarious and some were tragic.' Pots still steamed on the stove, but Mother's attention seemed directed backwards as she began to speak about the past. She spoke with a slow cadence, a rhythm punctuated (or maybe inspired) by the natural symphony around us. - Author: Leslie Goetsch
Initiatory Wound quotes by Leslie Goetsch
#28. Satire should, like a polished razor keen, Wound with a touch that's scarcely felt or seen. - Author: Mary Wortley Montagu
Initiatory Wound quotes by Mary Wortley Montagu
#29. You can't just sit there hating the wound, Tan, or indulging in bitterness. Whatever you become in life, always ask yourself, am I making more life or am I making more death? - Author: Michael D. O'Brien
Initiatory Wound quotes by Michael D. O'Brien
#30. I call it your source-fracture wound, the original break in your heart from long ago. It may have happened in an instant--a little rejection, a shocking abandonment, or a slight misattunement that suddenly made you realize how alone you were in this world. Or perhaps it was a bit-bu-bit splintering as over the years you met with an intermittent meanness, an unpredictable but repetitive abuse, or a neglect that stole your childhood inches at a time. Wherever, however, or whenever it happened, one thing we can assume is that no adult helped you make accurate meaning of your confusing and painful experience. No grown up sat you down and lovingly said, "No, honey, it's not that you're stupid. It's that your big brother is scared and insecure." "It's not that you don't matter, angel. It's that Daddy has a drinking problem and needs help." "It's not that you're not enough. It's that Mommy has clinical depression, dear, and it's neither your fault nor yours to fix." Without this mature presence to help explain to you what was happening to your little world, you probably came to some pretty strong and wrong conclusions about who you were and what was possible for you to have in life. And those conclusions became a habit of consciousness, a filter through which you interpret and then respond to the events of your life, making your grief all the more complex. - Author: Katherine Woodward Thomas
Initiatory Wound quotes by Katherine Woodward Thomas
#31. Hiding a wound can cause a serious infection without healing. It has to be exposed and washed. Sure, the cleansing may cause pain at first - but, in the end, it brings healing, as well as relief. - Author: Tessa Emily Hall
Initiatory Wound quotes by Tessa Emily Hall
#32. Scummer, pox and wound rot!" roared Tunstall, slamming his fist down on the bed. "Gods cursed the pig-tarsed mammering craven currish beef-witted bum-licking gut-griping louts that did this to me! May every flea, leech and hookworm in all creation find and feast upon them! - Author: Tamora Pierce
Initiatory Wound quotes by Tamora Pierce
#33. For a long time I told myself that things would get easier. It was going to be easier once he sat up, or when he was out of diapers, or when he turned 10, but I had been duped. The wounds were bigger, nastier, took longer to heal; the limbs were longer, we needed more bandages, longer wound care, hands worse, more homework, and things were only going to get tougher. - Author: Silvia Corradin
Initiatory Wound quotes by Silvia Corradin
#34. Thou are boot for many a bruise,
And healest many a wound;
In our Lady's blessed name,
I take thee from the ground. - Author: Walter Scott
Initiatory Wound quotes by Walter Scott
#35. The doctor said the wound was superficial. The old cob didn't know what "superficial" meant, but it sounded serious. - Author: E.B. White
Initiatory Wound quotes by E.B. White
#36. She was an innocent young woman and, while she was not jaded or tainted by the world yet, she possessed an open wound that would fester. Already it was riddled with the maggots of fear. If she wasn't careful, that fear would control her life. - Author: Armada West
Initiatory Wound quotes by Armada West
#37. To tell a falsehood is like the cut of a saber: for though the wound may heal, the scar of it will remain. - Author: Saadi
Initiatory Wound quotes by Saadi
#38. The sea was cruel and selfish as human beings, and in its monstrous simplicity had no notion of complexities like pity, wounding, or remorse ... You could see yourself in it ... while the wind, the light, the swaying, the sound of the water on the hull worked the miracle of distancing, calming you until you didn't hurt anymore, erasing any pity, any wound, and any remorse. - Author: Arturo Perez Reverte
Initiatory Wound quotes by Arturo Perez Reverte
#39. But sin is more than a stain. Sin is a wound; it needs to be treated, healed. This - Author: Pope Francis

#43. If I hadn't made it as an actor, I might have wound up a hood ... - Author: Steve McQueen
Initiatory Wound quotes by Steve McQueen
#44. Say that you don't love him!" Amarantha shrieked, and the blood on my hands became the blood of that rabbit - became the blood of what I had lost.
But I wouldn't say it. Because loving Tamlin was the only thing I had left, the only thing I couldn't sacrifice.
A path cleared through my red-and-black vision. I found Tamlin's eyes - wide as he crawled toward Amarantha, watching me die, and unable to save me while his wound slowly healed, while she still gripped his power.
Amarantha had never intended for me to live, never intended to let him go.
"Amarantha, stop this," Tamlin begged at her feet as he clutched the gaping wound in his chest. "Stop. I'm sorry - I'm sorry for what I said about Clythia all those years ago. Please. - Author: Sarah J. Maas
Initiatory Wound quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#45. To heal would be to open the wound,examine it and forgive - Author: Maeve Binchy
Initiatory Wound quotes by Maeve Binchy
#46. Women's Tongues are as sharp as two-edged Swords, and wound as much, when they are anger'd. - Author: Margaret Cavendish
Initiatory Wound quotes by Margaret Cavendish
#47. Hi," I say, stopping right in front of him. "I missed you today in chemistry."
"I got to school a little late."
"But you left my house early," I say, wondering what time he did in fact leave - if he waited until I fell asleep or stayed until the last possible moment.
"I still overslept," he explains.
"I'm sorry if that was my fault."
"I think it was your fault." He smiles wider. "Once I got home, I couldn't really fall asleep. Too wound up, I guess."
"Because of all the drama with Adam?"
He shakes his head and touches the side of my face, raising my chin slightly to kiss my lips. - Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz
Initiatory Wound quotes by Laurie Faria Stolarz
#48. That moment she was mine, mine, fair,
Perfectly pure and good: I found
A thing to do, and all her hair
In one long yellow string I wound
Three times her little throat around,
And strangled her. No pain felt she;
I am quite sure she felt no pain.
As a shut bud that holds a bee,
I warily oped her lids: again
Laughed the blue eyes without a stain.
And I untightened the next tress
About her neck; her cheek once more
Blushed bright beneath my burning kiss ... - Author: Robert Browning
Initiatory Wound quotes by Robert Browning
#49. Forgetting isn't enough. You can paddle away from the memories and think they are gone. But they will keep floating back, again and again and agian. They circle you, like sharks. Until, unless, something, someone? Can do more than just cover the wound. - Author: Sara Zarr
