“Tears are words that need to be written.”
~ Paulo Coelho
“Was I bitter? Absolutely.
Hurt? You bet your sweet ass I was hurt.
Who doesn’t feel a part of their heart break at rejection. You ask yourself every question you can think of, what, why, how come, and then your sadness turns to anger.
That’s my favorite part. It drives me, feeds me, and makes one hell of a story.”
~ Jennifer Salaiz
“When you’ve suffered a great deal in life, each additional pain is both unbearable and trifling.”
~ Yann Martel, Life of Pie
“Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness.
They are a sign of a pure heart.”
~ Jose N. Harris, Mi Vida
“I seldom think about my limitations, and they never made me sad.
Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.”
~ Helen Keller
“You can’t keep the birds of sadness from flying over your head,
but you can keep them from nesting in your hair.”
~ Sharon Creech, Walk Two Moons
“There is no beauty in sadness.
No honor in suffering.
No growth in fear.
No relief in hate.
It’s just a waste of perfectly good happiness.”
~ Katerina Stoykova Klemer
“Sadness gives depth, Happiness gives height.
Sadness gives roots, Happiness gives branches.
Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth.
Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously.
The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots.
In fact, it is always in proportion.
That’s its balance.”
~ Osho – Everyday Osho: 365 Daily Meditations for the Here and Now
“About time, what I really learned from studying English is: time is different with timing.
I understand the difference of these two words so well.
I understand falling in love with the right person in the wrong timing could be the greatest sadness in a person’s entire life.”
~ Xiaolu Guo – A Concise Chinese, English Dictionary for Lovers
“There is a dark side of the moon.
From today, I’m the part of the darkness”
“We enjoy warmth because we have been cold.
We appreciate light because we have been in darkness.
By the same token,
We can experience JOY because we have known sadness”
~ David Weatherford
