Pure and complete sorrow is as impossible as pure and complete joy.
He loved her, as you can only love someone who is an echo of yourself at your time of deepest sorrow.
Orson Scott Card
He who has not looked on Sorrow will never see Joy.
Give sorrow words. The grief that does not speak whispers the o'er-fraught heart, and bids it break.
Childhood has no forebodings; but then, it is soothed by no memories of outlived sorrow.
Christmas is a time in which, of all times in the year, the memory of every remediable sorrow, wrong, and trouble in the world around us, should be active with us, not less than our own experiences, for all good.
