When we lose one we love, our bitterest tears are called forth by the memory of hours when we loved not enough.
I adore art... when I am alone with my notes, my heart pounds and the tears stream from my eyes, and my emotion and my joys are too much to bear.
I always knew looking back on my tears would bring me laughter, but I never knew looking back on my laughter would make me cry.
Tears are the silent language of grief.
A lot of blood, sweat, and tears have gone into this career of mine.
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
I've always been able to transform happiness and pain and sorrow and tears into positive energy.
I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful.
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth is the smile that shines through tears.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
A secondhand wardrobe hand clothes doesn't make one an artist. Neither do a hair-trigger temper, melancholic nature, propensity for tears, hating your parents, or HIV. I hate to say it - none of these make one an artist. They can help, but just as being gay doesn't make one witty... the only thing that makes one an artist is making art.
Tears are often the telescope by which men see far into heaven.
Henry Ward Beecher
Some indeed have tears naturally, when the higher motion of the soul makes itself felt in the lower, or because God our Lord, seeing that it would be good for them, allows them to melt into tears. But this does not mean that they have greater charity or that they are more effective than others who enjoy no tears.
I don't see my artist friends as any more neurotic or addiction-prone than the others. The roommates I have had who were into triathlons or environmentalism were just as crazy as the poets, just as prone to tears over gardening or air conditioners, just as ready to kite a cheque or binge on cookie dough.
I think what is British about me is my feelings and awareness of others and their situations. English people are always known to be well mannered and cold but we are not cold - we don't interfere in your situation. If we are heartbroken, we don't scream in your face with tears - we go home and cry on our own.
If the world's a veil of tears, Smile till rainbows span it.
You have a lot of ups and downs in coaching, especially, but I can't remember any bad times at this point. I mean, they're all good. A lot of tears when you lose, a lot of down times, but I can't remember any of them. They're all positive now. Even the bad times were good.
Tears shed for self are tears of weakness, but tears shed for others are a sign of strength.
Are you not moved to tears and bitter compassion, when you behold the only Son of God seized by the most impious, dragged away, mocked, scourged, buffeted, spit upon, crowned with thorns, hung upon the infamous cross between two thieves, finally in such a horrible and execrable manner suffering death, for your salvation and that of the world?
Not a lot of people know me outside of athletics and believe it or not I am actually quite shy. The exhilaration of a win or tears after falling are the extremes. It takes me a while to get to know someone, but once I do I am very loyal to my old friends.
The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
I will never forget my beautiful days with you in Shanklin, they are certainly the most pleasant ones of my life. Look, I have tears in my eyes just to think about it. I am furious to be here, it is the end of happiness for a whole year.
To me the meanest flower that blows can give thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.
Christmas carols always brought tears to my eyes. I also cry at weddings. I should have cried at a couple of my own.
Tears are the symbol of the inability of the soul to restrain its emotion and retain its self command.
Henri Frederic Amiel
For women's tears are but the sweat of eyes.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
