The devil himself would be but a contemptible adversary were he not sure of a correspondent, and a party that held intelligence with him in our own breasts. All the blowing of a fire put under a caldron could never make it boil over, were there not a fullness of water within it.
      - Bishop Robert South

Sympathy is especially a Christian duty.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

It seems to me that we become more dear one to the other, in together admiring works of art, which speak to the soul by their true grandeur.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

The more we know, the better we forgive;
  Whoe'er feels deeply, feels for all who live.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

One common calamity makes men extremely affect each other, though they differ in every other particular.
      - Sir Richard Steele

I would go fifty miles on foot to kiss the hand of that man whose generous heart will give up the reins of his imagination into his Author's hands; be pleased, he knows not why, and cares not wherefore.
      - Laurence Sterne

The world has no sympathy with any but positive griefs. It will pity you for what you lose; never for what you lack.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Sympathy is the first great lesson which man should learn. It will be ill for him if he proceeds no farther; if his emotions are but excited to roll back on his heart, and to be fostered in luxurious quiet. But unless he learns to feel for things in which he has no personal interest, he can achieve nothing generous or noble.
      - Sir Thomas Noon Talfourd (Talford)

Every man rejoices twice when he has a partner of his joy; a friend shares my sorrow and makes it but a moiety, but he swells my joy and makes it double.
      - Jeremy Taylor

A marriage or a refusal or a proposal thrills through a whole household of women, and sets their hysterical sympathies at work.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

Ah! thank heaven, travelers find Samaritans as well as Levites on life's hard way.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

Far better one unpurchased heart than glory's proudest name.
      - Henry Theodore Tuckerman

Not being untutored in suffering, I learn to pity those in affliction.
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil)

Sympathy is in great degree a result of the mood we are in at the moment; anger forbids the emotion. On the other hand, it is easiest taken on when we are in a state of most absolute self-satisfaction.
      - Lewis (Lew) Wallace

A heart at leisure from itself,
  To soothe and sympathise.
      - Anna Letitia Waring,
        Father I know that all my Life

There is poetry and there is beauty in real sympathy; but there is more--there is action. The noblest and most powerful form of sympathy is not merely the responsive tear, the echoed sigh, the answering look; it is the embodiment of the sentiment in actual help.
      - Octavius Winslow

Conversation augments pleasure and diminishes pain by our having shares in either; for silent woes are greatest, as silent satisfaction leas; since sometimes our pleasure would be none but for telling of it, and our grief insupportable but for participation.
      - William Wycherley

Only when the sense of the pain of others begins does man begin.
      - Yevgeny Yevtushenko
