Scar Quotations

The sudden disappointment of a hope leaves a scar which the ultimate fulfillment of that hope never entirely removes.
Thomas Hardy

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone.
Rose Kennedy

Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.
Henry Rollins

There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with.
Harry Crews

Have you ever been hurt and the place tries to heal a bit, and you just pull the scar off of it over and over again.
