    The pain does not numb out, you start to see pain for what it really is.
    Though in my opinion you can better watch the thought process in your mind than the actual pain.

    As for another quote on this subject where stress can be replaced with pain:

    When you see with discernment,
    'All fabrications are stressful' —
    you grow disenchanted with stress.
    This is the path
    to purity.

    "Life is just what happens to you while you're busy making other plans" ~ John Lennon

    "Without atmosphere a painting is nothing" ~ Rembrandt

    "Paint a hundred studies. You can't do sketches enough. Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh" ~ Sargent

    "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work" ~ Thomas Edison

    I recently finished reading Art & Fear (David Bayles & Ted Orland).
    I loved reading this: "The place to learn about your materials is in the last use of your materials. The place to learn about your execution is in your execution. The best information about what you love is in your last contact with what you love. Put simply, your work is your guide: a complete comprehensive, limitless reference book on your work. There is no such other book, and it is yours alone. It functions this way for no one else. Your fingerprints are all over your work and you alone know how they got there. Your work tells you about your working methods, your discipline, your strengths and weaknesses, your habitual gestures, your willingness to embrace. The lessons you are meant to learn are in your work."

    oh and of course "If it bleeds, we can kill it"

    "If you're going through hell, keep going". Winston Churchill

    "Overthinking art, is like overthinking life. Take each situation as it comes; think & act accordingly. Never react. Act with purpose of mind and sureness of will. These are the precepts to living, and living, is an art."

    "There is no such thing as a moral or immoral book. Books are either well written or badly written. That is all." - Oscar Wilde

    From one of my favourite performers and visual artist Amanda Palmer (www.amandapalmer.net):

    Sun July 24th 2011 Advice for a young shy irish dancer- “if you don’t bow, if you don’t look out there and just give a wink, you break the connection. they need you, the crowd. they need to know that you feel them and you’re with them. and when it’s over, if they love you, and they’re cheering, they want to know that their gratitude has hit you and is moving through you…and that you’re giving it back to them, that you’re grateful in return. if you lose track of them, this whole thing doesn’t work. they need to SEE you SEEING them. they need to know they’re there. it’s a two way street. that’s why you bow. get it?”

    There's a good quote in here somewhere. Charlie Chaplin was certainly trying to reclaim his mustache from Hitler.

    Have I already posted any of these? Oh well...

    "The Universe is not only weirder than we imagine it is weirder than we can imagine." - J.B.S. Haldane

    "We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality. We are that reality. When you understand this, you see that you are nothing, and being nothing, you are everything. That is all." - Kalu Rinpoche

    "Nothing is real and [there's] nothing to get hung about." - John Lennon

    "Music is the only religion that delivers." - Frank Zappa

    "Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional" - The Buddha

    -

    "As a man is, so he sees. As the eye is formed, such are its powers."

    "The eye altering, alters all."

    "He who binds to himself a joy Does the winged life destroy; But he who kisses the joy as it flies Lives in eternity's sun rise."

    "If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern."

    "If a thing loves, it is infinite."

    "Imagination is the real and eternal world of which this vegetable universe is but a faint shadow."

    "Man has no Body distinct from his Soul; for that called Body is a portion of Soul discerned by the five Senses, the chief inlets of Soul in this age."

    - William Blake

    You know why you cry when you're sad? Its one of the few human developments to do with the social aspect of life as opposed to the survival of the species, you cry when you are sad as signal to other humans that you need comforting. Interesting tit-bit

    my favourite quote is: "we are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars" -Oscar Wilde. It's not even that I agree with it, its just that it sounds nice, lol.

    "I may have one foot in the grave, but I get to watch T.V and have sex all day" - My friend's grandfather. Disgusting but hilarious old man.

    If we have been pleased with life, we should not be displeased with death, since it comes from the hand of the same master.
    -Michelangelo



    .

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
    --- Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

    "Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand." - Albert Einstein (I said a similar thing in a post in the Art Discussion forum section before I came across this quote, where imagination is a top-down approach to discovery, and science is bottom-up approach.)

    "Bear in mind that the wonderful things you learn in your schools are the work of many generations. All this is put in your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honor it, add to it, and one day faithfully hand it on to your children." - Albert Einstein (I wrote a similar quote long ago: To progress, we now must take off where the wise have left off.)
