A lot of my childhood memories involve walking home in floods of tears. At that age, feeling unpopular is difficult to handle.
I remember one day sitting at the pool and suddenly the tears were streaming down my cheeks. Why was I so unhappy? I had success. I had security. But it wasn't enough. I was exploding inside.
More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones.
Saint Teresa of Avila
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
There is little for the great part of the history of the world except the bitter tears of pity and the hot tears of wrath.
It is better to write of laughter than of tears, for laughter is the property of man.
If you hire people just because they can do a job, they'll work for your money. But if you hire people who believe what you believe, they'll work for you with blood, sweat, and tears.
The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
You wind up creating from silence, like painting a picture on a blank canvas that could bring tears to somebody's eyes. As songwriters, our blank canvas is silence. Then we write a song from an idea that can change somebody's life. Songwriting is the closest thing to magic that we could ever experience. That's why I love songwriting.
I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful.
Certainly tears are given to us to use. Like all good gifts, they should be used properly.
Fashion isn't interesting when it comes from an uninspired place. It's like voodoo; we don't want things that are soaked in blood, sweat, and tears. I adore life, and I'm very easygoing - and it shows in my work.
Oh eyes, no eyes, but fountains fraught with tears; O life, no life, but lively form of death; Oh world, no world, but mass of public wrongs.
Tears shed for self are tears of weakness, but tears shed for others are a sign of strength.
I hope you will go out and let stories happen to you, and that you will work them, water them with your blood and tears and you laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
If you have tears, prepare to shed them now.
I think you have to pay for love with bitter tears.
I've always been a fan of melody and emotional melancholy, whether it was Rites of Spring or Tears for Fears or Neil Young. If I hear a song that has a sweet melody, I'm a sucker for it, whether it's Linkin Park or Little Richard.
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.
It is such a secret place, the land of tears.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The tears of the world are a constant quality. For each one who begins to weep, somewhere else another stops. The same is true of the laugh.
When a child can be brought to tears, and not from fear of punishment, but from repentance he needs no chastisement. When the tears begin to flow from the grief of their conduct you can be sure there is an angel nestling in their heart.
When onstage, I always try to take my audience through as many emotions as I possibly can. I want them to go from laughter to tears, be shocked and surprised and walk out the door with a renewed sense of themselves - and maybe a smile.
I was on some TV shows with Lady Gaga the other week, and you could see the difference in reaction between her fans and my fans outside. She comes out, and she looks like a star, and the reaction is just tears, crying, people going, 'Oh my God, Oh my God.' My fans are like: 'Alright, Ed.'
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
