Anger is just a cowardly extension of sadness. It’s a lot easier to be angry at someone than it is to tell them you’re hurt.
Anger, tears and sadness are only for those who have given up.
The word ‘happiness’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
Carl Gustav Jung
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
You cannot prevent the birds of sadness from passing over your head, but you can prevent their making a nest in your hair.
Beauty and sadness always go together. Nature thought beauty too rich to go forth Upon the earth without a meet alloy.
Change is certain. Peace is followed by disturbances; departure of evil men by their return. Such recurrences should not constitute occasions for sadness but realities for awareness, so that one may be happy in the interim.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Sadness usually results from one of the following causes either when a man does not succeed, or is ashamed of his success.
Courage and cheerfulness will not only carry you over the rough places in life, but will enable you to bring comfort and help to the weak-hearted and will console you in the sad hours.
Man could not live if he were entirely impervious to sadness. Many sorrows can be endured only by being embraced, and the pleasure taken in them naturally has a somewhat melancholy character.
Sadness is but a wall between two gardens.
Sorrow is one of the vibrations that prove the fact of living.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
There is no worse sorrow than remembering happiness in the day of sorrow.
Alfred De Musset
When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions.
Sorrows cannot all be explained away in a life truly lived, grief and loss accumulate like possessions.
