quotes with the word "painfully"
We must reaffirm our commitment to nonviolence. I want to stress this. The futility of violence in the struggle for racial justice has been tragically etched in all the recent Negro riots. Yesterday, I tried to analyze the riots and deal with their causes. Today I want to give the other side. There is certainly something painfully sad about a riot. One sees screaming youngsters and angry adults fighting hopelessly and aimlessly against impossible odds. And deep down within them, you can see a desire for self-destruction, a kind of suicidal longing. Occasionally Negroes contend that the 1965 Watts riot and the other riots in various cities represented effective civil rights action. But those who express this view always end up with stumbling words when asked what concrete gains have been won as a result.
Where Do We Go From Here? (1967)
Martin Luther King, Jr.
You know what so funny, this strike has been going on for a long time. It's lasted longer than the Civil Rights movement, what the hell is this? It's painfully obvious to me white people don't know how to protest. You need like an Al Sharpton, have a dream, go to the mountaintop, do something!

Unilateralism, as we have painfully seen in Iraq, is its own reward. Going it alone may satisfy a political instinct but it is dangerous to our military, even without their Commander in Chief taunting terrorists to "bring it on."
NYU Speech (2004)

Ebola, as we're seeing very painfully, is not going to stay confined unless we put in a lot more resources to try to begin to tailor down the epidemic and contain it and end it the way we have previously by putting in a lot of resources. So, it's not either or. We can't say we're not going to be involved because these things are somebody else's problems because in the world of inter-dependence that we currently live in, a lot of those problems end up eventually on our doorstep.
He was incredibly nice and painfully sensitive . . . He would stand backstage and berate himself if he felt like he didn't do a good job. It was almost like he couldn't hear how loud everyone was laughing.
He was incredibly and painfully patient with me regarding sex . . . But even when Mom wasn't around, I felt as if she was watching. We were always holding hands and trying to find ways to be alone and kiss, but poor guy, I made him wait and wait and my mom kept track.
about Dean Cain
Ah, yes, very good, but the line about my captors forcing me to wear painfully ill-fitting shoes was inaccurate.
The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive . . . You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more than any qualification I ever earned.
J. K. Rowling

UVA has admitted they have allowed students who have confessed to sexually assaulting another student to remain on campus . . . That is, and remains, shocking. More importantly, it has never been about this one school, and it is painfully clear that colleges across the country have a real problem with how they are handling, or not handling, cases of sexual assault on their campuses.
It had a detailed description of the surgeries that I went through, including something to make myself taller . . . The whole wig and painfully putting each hair in. It was crazy. It was bizarre.

In the midst of a career spent covering and consuming news, it has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news, due to my actions. As Managing Editor of NBC Nightly News, I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days . . . Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us.
