TRAGEDY
[ Also see Actors Adversity Books Comedy Humor Literature Theatre Writing ]

Tragedy has the great moral defect of giving too much importance to life and death.
      - Sebastien-Roch-Nicolas de Chamfort

The pleasure arising from an extraordinary agitation of the mind is frequently so great as to stifle humanity; hence arises the entertainment of the common people at executions, and of the better sort at tragedies.
      - Abbe Jean-Antoine Dubois

The tragedy of life is what dies inside a man while he lives.
      - Albert Einstein

Tragedy warms the soul, elevates the heart, can and ought to create heroes. In this sense, perhaps, France owes a part of her great actions to Corneille.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

A tragic situation exists precisely when virtue does not triumph but when it is still felt that man is nobler than the forces which destroy him.
      - George Orwell (pseudonym of Eric Blair)

There are two tragedies in life. One is not to get your heart's desire. The other is to get it.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
         (act IV)

There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)
