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

Sweet drop of pure and pearly light;
  In thee the rays of Virtue shine;
    More calmly clear, more mildly bright,

In youth, one has tears without grief; in age, griefs without tears.
      - Joseph Roux

Lofty mountains are full of springs; great hearts are full of tears.

The waiting tears stood ready for command, and now they flow to varnish the false tale.
      - Nicholas Rowe

Love is loveliest when embalmed in tears.
      - Sir Walter Scott

See yonder rock from which the fountain gushes; is it less compact of adamant, though waters flow from it? Firm hearts have moister eyes.
      - Sir Walter Scott

Tears are the softening showers which cause the seed of heaven to spring up in the human heart.
      - Sir Walter Scott

But woe awaits a country, when
  She sees the tears of bearded men.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Marmion
         (canto V, st. 16)

The tear, down childhood's cheek that flows
  Is like the dewdrop on the rose;
    When next the summer breeze comes by
      And waves the bush, the flower is dry.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Rokesby
         (canto IV, st. 11)

And that same dew, which some time on the buds was wont to swell like round and orient pearls, stood now within the pretty floweret's eyes, like tears that did their own disgrace bewail.
      - William Shakespeare

Certain drops of salt.
      - William Shakespeare

Eye-offending brine.
      - William Shakespeare

Friends, I owe more tears to this dead man than you shall see me pay.
      - William Shakespeare

How many a holy and obsequious tear hath dear religious love stolen from mine eye, as interest of the dead!
      - William Shakespeare

I did not think to shed a tear
  In all my miseries; but thou hast forc'd me,
    Out of thy honest truth, to play the woman.
      - William Shakespeare

I had not so much of man in me,
  And all my mother came into mine eyes
    And gave me up to tears.
      - William Shakespeare

I so lively acted with my tears
  That my poor mistress, moved therewithal,
    Wept bitterly.
      - William Shakespeare
