Pain is a symphony—a complex response that includes not just a distinct sensation but also motor activity, a change in emotion, a focusing of attention, a brand-new memory.
—Surgeon and author Atul Gawande, in his 2002 book, Complications: A Surgeon’s Notes on an Imperfect Science
Of pain you could wish only one thing: that it should stop. Nothing in the world was so bad as physical pain. In the face of pain there are no heroes.
—George Orwell, in his dystopian classic, 1984
