Weep on; and, as thy sorrows flow,
  I'll taste the luxury or woe.
      - Thomas Moore, Anacreontic

Listen, dying one! There is no worse sorrow than remembering happiness in the day of sorrow.
  [Fr., Ecoute, moribonde! Il n'est pire douleur
    Qu'un souvenir heureux dans les jour de malheur.]
      - Louis Charles Alfred de Musset, Le Saule,
        the opposite of his opinion in his "Un Souvenir"

Could my griefs speak, the tale would have no end.
      - Thomas Otway

Sorrow is tranquility remembered in emotion.
      - Dorothy Rothchild Parker (Mrs. Alan Campbell)

Oh, look not at thy pains or sorrows, how great soever; but look from them, look off them, look beyond them, to the Deliverer, whose power is over them, and whose loving, wise, and tender spirit is able to do thee good by them!
      - Isaac Penington

With sorrow remembering happy times.
  [It., Con dolor rimembrando il tempo lieto.]

Do not look at life's long sorrow; see how small each moment's pain.
      - Adelaide Anne Procter

Do not cheat thy Heart and tell her,
  "Grief will pass away,
    Hope for fairer times in future,
      And forget to-day."
        Tell her, if you will, that sorrow
          Need not come in vain;
            Tell her that the lesson taught her
              Far outweighs the pain.
      - Adelaide Anne Procter, Friend Sorrow

A small sorrow distracts, a great one makes us collected; as a bell loses its clear tone when slightly cracked, and recovers it if the fissure is enlarged.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Sorrow causes more absence and confusion than so-called levity.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Sorrow seems sent for our instruction, as we darken the cages of birds when we would teach them to sing.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

The echo of the nest-life, the voice of our modest, fairer, holier soul, is audible only in a sorrow-darkened bosom, as the nightingales warble when one veils their cage.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

To love all mankind, from the greatest to the lowest, a cheerful state of being is required; but in order to see into mankind, into life, and still more into ourselves, suffering is requisite.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Sorrows are like thunderclouds--in the distance they look black, over our heads scarcely gray.
  [Ger., Die Leiden sind die Gewitterwolken; in der Ferne sehen sie schwartz aus, uber uns kaum grau.]
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul),
        Hesperus (XIV)

Present unhappiness is selfish; past sorrow is compassionate.
      - Joseph Roux

There's no way to make sorrow light
  But in the noble bearing; be content;
    Blows given from heaven are our due punishment;
      All shipwrecks are not drownings; you see buildings
        Made fairer from their ruins.
      - William Rowley

Courage! even sorrows, when once they are vanished, quicken the soul, as rain the valley.
      - Johann Gaudenz Salis, Baron von Salis-Seewis

Sorrows must die with the joys they outnumber.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

Whatever lives, lives to die in sorrow. We engage our hearts, and grasp after the things of this world, only to undergo the pang of losing them.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

Brief is sorrow, and endless is joy.
  [Ger., Kurz ist der Schmerz, und ewig ist die Freude!]
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller,
        Die Jungfrau von Orleans (V, 14, 44)

He that would soothe sorrow must not argue on the vanity of the most deceitful hopes.
      - Sir Walter Scott
