One must not let oneself be overwhelmed by sadness.
If we could read the secret history of our enemies we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I had sadness for breakfast.
Delicious tears! The heart's own dew.
Letitia Elizabeth Landon

We never taste a perfect joy; our happiest successes are mixed with sadness.
I can see the humorous side of things and enjoy the fun when it comes; but look where I will, there seems to me always more sadness than joy in life.
Jerome K. Jerome
Melancholy and sadness are the start of doubt... doubt is the beginning of despair; despair is the cruel beginning of the differing degrees of wickedness.
