The law of common sense.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

What is resignation? It is putting God between one's self and one's grief.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

It seem'd so hard at first, mother, to leave the blessed sun,
  And now it seems as hard to stay--and yet His will be done!
    But still I think it can't be long before I find release;
      And that good man, the clergyman, has told me words of peace.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        The May-Queen--Conclusion (st. 3)

Vulgar minds refuse to crouch beneath their load; the brave bear theirs without repining.
      - James Thomson (1)

Ye noble few! who here unbending stand
  Beneath life's pressure, yet bear up awhile,
    And what your bounded view, which only saw
      A little part, deemed evil, is no more:
        The storms of wintry time will quickly pass,
          And one unbounded Spring encircle all.
      - James Thomson (1)

The evil which one suffers patiently as inevitable seems insupportable as soon as he conceives the idea of escaping from it.
      - Alexis de Tocqueville

We are content to take what Thou shalt give,
  To work or suffer as Thy choice shall be;
    Forsaking what Thy wisdom bids us leave,
      Glad in the thought that we are pleasing Thee.
      - Eva Travers

Resignation is the courage of Christian sorrow.
      - Alexandre Rodolphe Vinet

Strike! Thou the Master, we Thy keys,
  The anthem of the destinies!
    The minor of Thy loftier strain,
      Our hearts shall breathe the old refrain--
        "Thy will be done!"
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

Whate'er my doom;
  It cannot be unhappy: God hath given me
    The boon of resignation.
      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson
