Numb 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

Threescore years and ten is enough; if a man can't suffer all the misery he wants in that time, he must be numb.
Josh Billings

Numb is the new deep, done with the old me, and talk is the same cheap it's been.

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.
Douglas Coupland

If people can't deal with their problems, they numb themselves a little bit.
