Painful Insult Quotes
I recently wrote a post about how to ignore insults and how to just let them roll off your back. It seemed to have struck a chord with many people. Mainly because words can be so powerful.
Words have the power to inspire and the power to hurt. A great reminder to use them wisely.
Here is a great collection of quotes about insults and about just how painful insults can be:
“Forgive those that insult you, attack you, belittle you or take you for granted. But more than this…forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you.”
“I won’t insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.”

“The noblest revenge is to forgive.”
“Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.”
“Social media has become a high school playground where the challenge is what idiot can come up with the best insult, and do you end up congratulating them for it?”
“When someone tells you that you have done something that has hurt them, you don’t get to decide that you didn’t.”
“An injury is much sooner forgotten than an insult.”
“Envy is an insult to oneself.”
“Sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me.’ This is a lie. What we say matters. The unkind things we communicate can soil the best of relationships; even with the deepest of regrets…what lingers is a stain of hurt that may fade but will never truly go away. The wounding words we say are like feathers released in a harsh wind, once said; we will never get them back.”
“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
“Dogs bite sometimes, people bite at all times, with their hurtful words”
Mehmet Murat ildan

“Sometimes being old is used as an insult, which is bizarre because, if you’re lucky, that’s literally going to happen to you. It’s a strange thing to gloat about: being born recently.”
“Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words can never hurt you…unless you believe them. Then, they can destroy you.”
Charles F. Glassman
