quotes with the word "painless"

I know it's hard, it may not be painless, quick or easy, but you can insist on a different ending to your story.
A God who could make good children as easily as bad, yet preferred to make bad ones; who could have made every one of them happy, yet never made a single happy one; who made them prize their bitter life, yet stingily cut it short; who gave his angels eternal happiness unearned, yet required his other children to earn it; who gave his angels painless lives, yet cursed his other children with biting miseries and maladies of mind and body; who mouths justice, and invented hell - mouths mercy, and invented hell - mouths Golden Rules and forgiveness multiplied by seventy times seven, and invented hell; who mouths morals to other people, and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all; who created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the responsibility for man's acts upon man, instead of honorably placing it where it belongs, upon himself; and finally, with altogether divine obtuseness, invites his poor abused slave to worship him!
The Mysterious Stranger (1916)

Obviously the eurozone is better equipped now than it was two or three years ago, but doesn't mean a Grexit would be painless.
We've got to give those animals a decent life, and we've got to give them a painless death. We owe those animals respect.
We know that there are people who have been on death row who have been freed because later on it's been proven that they were innocent . . . We know that in the application of the death penalty, we've had recent cases in which by any standard, it has not been swift and painless but rather gruesome and clumsy. And all of this, I think, has led me to express some very significant reservations.
