Aches Quotations

A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don't function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick.
Brene Brown

Family quarrels are bitter things. They don't go according to any rules. They're not like aches or wounds, they're more like splits in the skin that won't heal because there's not enough material.
F. Scott Fitzgerald

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.
Maya Angelou

Ted Danson

Drawing makes you see things clearer, and clearer and clearer still, until your eyes ache.
