The floor scooped me up where I stood, and I blinked as it hit me.
~ M. Beth Bloom, Drain You
I always thought fainting showed an inherent weakness of character, but I understood it now. It was an act of self-preservation. Confronted by emotion too extreme to handle, the body shuts down to keep from running around like a chicken with its head cut off, potentially injuring itself.
~ Karen Marie Moning
The life of faith is not a life of mounting up with wings, but a life of walking and not fainting.
~ Oswald Chambers
