Almost all of our sorrows spring out of our relations with other people.
In this world, full often, our joys are only the tender shadows which our sorrows cast.
Henry Ward Beecher
Seek not to know what must not be reveal, for joy only flows where fate is most concealed. A busy person would find their sorrows much more; if future fortunes were known before!
All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story or tell a story about them.
But whoever gives birth to useless children, what would you say of him except that he has bred sorrows for himself, and furnishes laughter for his enemies.
We tell our triumphs to the crowds, but our own hearts are the sole confidants of our sorrows.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Our own sorrows seem heavy enough, even when lifted by certain long-term joys. But watching others hurt is the breaker of most any heart.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Words are most malignant, the most treacherous possession of mankind. They are saturated with the sorrows of all time.
An adolescent is somebody who is in between things. A teenager is somebody who's kind of permanently there. And so living with them through the various teenage hopes and sorrows and joys was curiously enough a maturing experience for me.
He that loves not his wife and children feeds a lioness at home, and broods a nest of sorrows.
Man is subject to innumerable pains and sorrows by the very condition of humanity, and yet, as if nature had not sown evils enough in life, we are continually adding grief to grief and aggravating the common calamity by our cruel treatment of one another.
I will indulge my sorrows, and give way to all the pangs and fury of despair.
There are few sorrows, however poignant, in which a good income is of no avail.
Logan Pearsall Smith
I don't want my guy to buy me cars, villas or diamonds. I can do all that. I don't want any PDA, either.

Sadly, most of the men that I have met in the past couple of years are too self-obsessed.
Not a day passes over the earth, but men and women of no note do great deeds, speak great words and suffer noble sorrows.

She taught me to read the subtext of the down-market celebrity interview, she knew all the Hollywood codes, and followed the deep backgrounds.
Life is full of joys and sorrows, much of it our own making. Sadly, the West has voted time and time again for bigger government, more inflation, higher taxes and excessive regulation - all policies that have kept us from Adam Smith's vision of an opulent society.
Death has its revelations: the great sorrows which open the heart open the mind as well; light comes to us with our grief. As for me, I have faith; I believe in a future life. How could I do otherwise? My daughter was a soul; I saw this soul. I touched it, so to speak.
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
