This is how it feels now. Blankness. Numbness. Nothing  (Numbness Quotes) One must go through periods of numbness that are harder to bear than grief  (Numbness Quotes) A lazy frost, a numbness of the mind  (Numbness Quotes) Absent the edge, we drown in numbness  (Numbness Quotes) He was numb except for dreading the loss of numbness  (Numbness Quotes) There is a level of grief so deep that it stops resembling grief at all. The pain becomes so severe that the body can no longer feel it. The grief cauterizes itself, scars over, prevents inflated feeling. Such numbness is a kind of mercy  (Numbness Quotes) People talk about the pain of grief, but I don’t know what they mean. To me, grief is a devastating numbness, every sensation dulled  (Numbness Quotes) Just that, is one of those uncommon moments, those times when you don’t wish for something else, for even one thing to be different; when you have no other needs or worries, where your insides are calm, and everything you were ever restless about, anything that had ever given you angst, is quieted to stillness. No steel ball in your chest, no breathless fear. No blue numbness of nearly passing out, no nagging doubts of the backstage mind. All of that, forgotten. It is just rightness, so rare  (Numbness Quotes) Wasn’t it time she risked getting hurt again, instead of just accepting the numbness of never letting anyone in?  (Numbness Quotes) In this world of numbness and information overload, the ability to feel, my boy, is a rare gift indeed  (Numbness Quotes) But the very ransomed children of God themselves: why do they know so little of that habitual conscious communion with God which the Scriptures seem to offer? The answer is our chronic unbelief. Faith enables our spiritual sense to function. Where faith is defective the result will be inward insensibility and numbness toward spiritual things  (Numbness Quotes) Great potential for personal empowerment can be found in attending to our awareness of global problems and to our understanding of how they connect with each other and with our personal lives. The process of naming the danger, saying aloud that the threats to life on earth are real, moves us from the numbness of denial to the aliveness that makes action possible  (Numbness Quotes) Wasn’t it time she risked getting hurt again, instead of just accepting the numbness of never letting anyone in?  (Numbness Quotes) Once you lose your parents, you get this numbness, this feeling of having to really be able to connect yourself with someone. I depended on my brothers for that connection, but to have that feeling of being taken care of... I lost it when my parents passed away.  (Numbness Quotes) The reason that last-ditch political maneuvering has become business as usual in Washington is that the actors involved are drunk on blame and are convinced that the voting public is, too. They count on outrage, thereby spreading numbness. They cherish the prospect of partisan fury, thereby inspiring nonpartisan disgust.  (Numbness Quotes) People talk about the pain of grief, but I don’t know what they mean. To me, grief is a devastating numbness, every sensation dulled.  (Numbness Quotes) Since our society equates happiness with youth, we often assume that sorrow, quiet desperation, and hopelessness go hand in hand with getting older. They don’t. Emotional pain or numbness are symptoms of living the wrong life, not a long life.  (Numbness Quotes) Your numbness is something perhaps you cannot help. It is what the world has done to you. But your coldness. That is what you do to the world  (Numbness Quotes) The numbness of his loss had passed, and the pain would hit me out of nowhere, doubling me over, racking my body with sobs. Where are you? I would cry out in my mind. Where have you gone? Of course, there was never any answer  (Numbness Quotes) And though the coldness I have always felt leaves me, the numbness doesn’t and probably never will. this relationship will probably lead to nothing... this didn’t change anything. I imagine her smelling clean, like tea  (Numbness Quotes) Faith enables our spiritual sense to function. Where faith is defective the result will be inward insensibility and numbness toward spiritual things  (Numbness Quotes) Dear to me is sleep: still more, being made of stone, While pain and guilt still linger here below, Blindness and numbness - these please me alone; Then do not wake me, keep your voices low  (Numbness Quotes) There's much to be said for feeling numb. Time passes more quickly. You eat less, and because numbness encourages laziness, you do fewer things, good or bad, and the world's probably a better place for it  (Numbness Quotes) Torture presupposes, it requires, it craves the abrogation of our capacity to imagine others suffering, dehumanizing them so much that their pain is not our pain. It demands this of the torturer, placing the victim outside and beyond any form of compassion or empathy, but also demands of everyone else the same distancing, the same numbness  (Numbness Quotes) Her heart began to ache, and she felt the numbness slip away. Misery welled up inside her. She clamped down on it, trying to hold onto the deadness that had blanketed her emotions for the past few days  (Numbness Quotes) You’ve faced horrors in these past weeks... I don’t know which is worse. The terror you feel the first time you witness such things, or the numbness that comes after it starts to become ordinary  (Numbness Quotes) He wondered if this was what clinical depression felt like, a total numbness, a weary lack of hope  (Numbness Quotes) There is a curious comfort in letting go. After the agony, letting go brings numbness, and after the numbness, clarity. As if I can see the world for the first time, and my place in it, independent of you, a whole vista of what may be. Even if it is not grand or inspiring, it is real and solid, unlike the fantasy I’ve built around you. I will do this. I will triumph over you  (Numbness Quotes) I grow numb; I grow stiff. How shall I break up this numbness which discredits my sympathetic heart?  (Numbness Quotes)
