what does this quote mean?

“Assuetude of things hurtful doth make them lose their force to hurt”

does it mean the more you use / are around, things that hurt you. the less they hurt you?

Answer #1

It means that the continual use of hurtful things causes them to eventually become unable to hurt anymore…you become “‘numb”‘ to it.

Answer #2

I’m not 100% on this but my guess would be the more you hurt people the less people care about you and there for the less it hurts them so I think it means the more you hurt people the less friends you’ll have and maybe short crappy relationships too… my guess anyways. hope it helps! =)
