Text Quotes
I believe that mothers should tell the truth, even - no, especially - when the truth is difficult. It’s always easier, and in the short term can even feel right, to pretend everything is okay, and to encourage your children to do the same. But concealment leads to shame, and of all hurts shame is the most painful  (Painful Truths Quotes) Everyone sees something different in ‘Endgame’: a biblical apocalypse, a portrait of painful co-dependency, a confession of guilt and dignity in the face of death, a night of baffling hopelessness, a meaningless babble. Each interpretation reveals an absurd truth - not about the play, but about the person watching it.  (Painful Truths Quotes) Through language, we can tell the truth and hear the truth spoken, just as we can be deceived. Sometimes it’s a painful realization: we can be lied to. As I write, I think of myself as putting my eye under oath, so that what I write is the truth about my characters.  (Painful Truths Quotes) When part of what you’re trying to get at is the truth hidden under a taboo, or when you want to nail a hypocrisy, laughter is a very useful tool.

It may be unimportant or painful. It cannot be vulgar. Vulgarity is only in concealment of truth, or in affectation  (Painful Truths Quotes) Even those truths that are painful will ultimately increase my wisdom, undergird my strength, make possible my art  (Painful Truths Quotes) We all talk about how much we hate lies. Yet we prefer, so often, to be lied to... because it allows us to dodge all those painful truths we’d rather not hear  (Painful Truths Quotes) The harder we look at our aches and ailments, the more we will be startled by the painful truths they are trying to convey about our dangerously disembodied way of life  (Painful Truths Quotes) Never hide things from hardcore thinkers. They get more aggravated, more provoked by confusion than the most painful truths  (Painful Truths Quotes) Most people are not looking for provable truths. As you said, truth is often accompanied by intense pain, and almost no one is looking for painful truths. What people need is beautiful, comforting stories that make them feel as if their lives have some meaning. Which is where religion comes from  (Painful Truths Quotes) Your mind will believe comforting lies while also knowing the painful truths that make those lies necessary.
