Heavy Quotations

Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water.
Christopher Morley

I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives.
Ann Voskamp

All that stuff about heavy metal and hard rock, I don't subscribe to any of that. It's all just music. I mean, the heavy metal from the Seventies sounds nothing like the stuff from the Eighties, and that sounds nothing like the stuff from the Nineties. Who's to say what is and isn't a certain type of music?
Ozzy Osbourne

Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.

My optimism wears heavy boots and is loud.
