Sadness quotes by Avery Aster
#1. I have to go home, Masi.
You are my home, bella. I am lost without you. He couldn't speak. There were no words to recoil the loss consuming him. Massimo brought his hands up to her face. Kissing her one last time. He had to for his sanity. And he did with great passion, knowing he'd hurt her face when she kissed him back. But she did. He heard the cry in her throat as their tongues danced. Warm tears touched his palms as they continued to kiss. His fingertips were wet with sadness. He kept on kissing her. Unable to stop, he needed ten more seconds. Ti amo, I love you. Please don't leave. I've waited my whole life for you. When he pulled his face back, she cried, and he realized he did also. #Quote by Avery Aster
Sadness quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#2. Suddenly, this word fills me with a sense of sadness I haven't felt since childhood. The kind of sadness you feel at the end of summer. When the fireflies are gone, the ponds are all dried up and the plants are wilted. It's no longer really summer but the air is still too warm and heavy to be fall. It's the season between seasons. It's the feeling of something dying. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Sadness quotes by Taya Kyle
#3. But amid all the peace, I couldn't entirely escape my sadness. One morning I was out walking and suddenly felt as if I were being pushed down into a hole. My friend's adult daughter happened to see me and asked what was wrong.
"I just realized that Chris doesn't really belong to me anymore," I told her. Tears were rolling down my face. "He belongs to everyone, and I've lost that part of him that was mine."
"I have chills all over my body," she said. "This has never happened to me before, but I feel Chris wants me to tell you something. He'll always be yours. #Quote by Taya Kyle
Sadness quotes by Rei Anthony Albon
#4. Trust can be broken in just a few seconds, but it takes years to heal #Quote by Rei Anthony Albon
Sadness quotes by Johan Huizinga
#5. When the world was half a thousand years younger all events had much sharper outlines than now. The distance between sadness and joy, between good and bad fortune, seemed to be much greater than for us; every experience had that degree of directness and absoluteness which joy and sadness still have in the mind of a child #Quote by Johan Huizinga
Sadness quotes by Sabahattin Ali
#6. People can only get to know each other up to a point and then they make up the rest, until one day, seeing their mistake, they turn their backs on sadness and run away. Would this ever happen, if they stopped believing their dreams and made do with what was possible? If everyone accepted what was natural, then no one would suffer disappointment, no one would curse fate. We have every right to see our situation as pitiful, but we must confine our pity to ourselves. To pity another is to assume superiority and that is why we must never think we are superior to others, or that others are more unfortunate. #Quote by Sabahattin Ali
Sadness quotes by Suzanne Collins
#7. Peeta opens his mouth for the first bite without hesitation. He swallows, then frowns slightly. "They're very sweet."
"Yes they're sugar berries. My mother makes jam from them. Haven't you've ever had them before?" I say, poking the next spoonful in his mouth.
"No," he says, almost puzzled. "But they taste familiar. Sugar berries?"
"Well, you can't get them in the market much, they only grow wild," I say. Another mouthful goes down. Just one more to go.
"They're sweet as syrup," he says, taking the last spoonful. "Syrup." His eyes widen as he realizes the truth. I clamp my hand over his mouth and nose hard, forcing him to swallow instead of spit. He tries to make himself vomit the stuff up, but it's too late, he's already losing consciousness. Even as he fades away, I can see in his eyes what I've done is unforgiveable.
I sit back on my heels and look at him with a mixture of sadness and satisfaction. A stray berry stains his chin and I wipe it away. "Who can't lie, Peeta?" I say, even though he can't hear me. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Sadness quotes by Lisa Unger
#8. I think most people are just trying to be happy, and that most of their actions, however misguided, are in line with that goal. Most people just want to feel they belong somewhere, want to be loved, and want to feel they're important to someone. If you really examine all the wrongheaded and messed-up things they do, they can most often be traced back to that basic desire. The abusers, the addicted, the cruel and unpleasant, the manipulators
these are just people who started this quest for happiness in the basement of their lives. Someone communicated to them through word or deed that they were undeserving, so they think they have to claw their way there over the backs of others, leaving scars and creating damage. Of course, they only create more misery for themselves and others. #Quote by Lisa Unger
Sadness quotes by Brigid Kemmerer
#9. You know what sucks about sorry? It's the worst word in the world. Because it always happens after you fuck up something good. #Quote by Brigid Kemmerer
Sadness quotes by Theodor Storm
#10. Between the shadows of the earth and the dark depths of the sky, human life lay slumbering, with all its unsolved puzzles. #Quote by Theodor Storm
Sadness quotes by Najwa Zebian
#11. Take responsibility.
Just as you can't deny that you can feel love and hate, happiness and sadness, anger and ease of mind, or tiredness and relaxation, you can't deny that you have a fate that, sometimes, you can't control. That doesn't mean that it takes control over you. You can't deny that you have words that need to be spoken. You can't deny that you have a choice. You can't deny the ability that you can say no. You can't deny the ability that you have the freedom to make a decision and defend it. You can't deny injustice when you see it, unfairness when you feel it, oppression when you witness it. Stop blaming the world around you for wronging you. Take responsibility for the nos you could have said but chose not to, the words you could have said but didn't, instead wrapping your mouth with your own hands and remaining silent against what needed to be addressed. Take responsibility for the choices you could have made but restrained yourself from making. #Quote by Najwa Zebian
Sadness quotes by Chris Rea
#12. Save your tears, you've got years. #Quote by Chris Rea
Sadness quotes by Anthony Powell
#13. Would it be too explicit, too exaggerated, to say that when I set eyes on Isobel Tolland, I knew at once that I should marry her? Something like that is the truth; certainly nearer the truth than merely to record those vague, inchoate sentiments of interest of which I was so immediately conscious. It was as if I had known her for many years already; enjoyed happiness with her and suffered sadness. I was conscious of that, as of another life, nostalgically remembered. Then, at that moment, to be compelled to go through all the paraphernalia of introduction, of 'getting to know' one another by means of the normal formalities of social life, seemed hardly worth while. We knew one another already; the future was determinate. #Quote by Anthony Powell
Sadness quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#14. Take this sorrow to thy heart and make it part of thee, and it shall nourish thee till thou art strong again. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Sadness quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#15. Or is what remains in me like a defeated army,
Fleeing in disarray from victory already won? #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Sadness quotes by Margaret Atwood
#16. It's psychic. It's the age. It's chemical. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Sadness quotes by Emil Cioran
#17. The sense that everything is going wrong has existed in every era, and rightly so since men have found no greater pleasure than in inventing new ways to make each other miserable. #Quote by Emil Cioran
Sadness quotes by Cindy Hope
#18. Once you give in to Buddhist beliefs, it is hard to feel emotions such as rage and sadness because nothing is real. #Quote by Cindy Hope
Sadness quotes by Leslye Walton
#19. She could tell when a woman was pregnant - even before the woman herself might know -just from the way she smelled: a combinaison of brown sugar and Stargazer lilies. Happiness had a pungent scent, like the sourest lime or lemon. Broken hearts smelled surprisingly sweet. Sadness filled the air with a salty, sea-like redolence; death smelled like sadness. #Quote by Leslye Walton
Sadness quotes by Michele Lena Lucy
#20. Enraged
I throw myself to the ground and I scream,
my best friend is gone, this world is so mean.
I cry as I pound my fists on his grass,
I'm very upset that our time went so fast.
My heart beats faster than ever before,
my tears unstoppable, I'm hurt to the core.
There are no words people can say,
that will ease my excruciating pain.
I don't understand why you had to go.
You leaving me, we just didn't know.
I'll make it somehow, I'll start anew.
But, there is no way I can replace you.
I struggle to make it through each day,
and retain my sanity in this foggy haze.
The sadness and pain that I display,
is because God decided to take you away. #Quote by Michele Lena Lucy
Sadness quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#21. What a sad business is being funny! #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
Sadness quotes by Stephanie Kate Strohm
#22. I had a feeling that when I got back to Tupelo, none of this would seem real. I would miss Jamie a lot, but with the same ache of sadness that I'd felt when I'd never gotten my Hogwarts letter. That peculiar grief that comes from missing something that you knew you couldn't have. The end was approaching, and its inexorable pull was palpable. #Quote by Stephanie Kate Strohm
Sadness quotes by Kalayna Price
#23. Once in a lifetime. Even sated in the aftermath of the best orgasm of my life, a twinge of sadness touched me. Don't be stupid, Alex: it's just tonight. We both know it's just tonight. #Quote by Kalayna Price
Sadness quotes by Katrina Kaif
#24. I realised that you can go through times of extreme happiness, but if that happiness is not coming from a deeply rooted place, you will also be going through extreme lows of sadness. #Quote by Katrina Kaif
Sadness quotes by Stephanie Zacharek
#25. Pan's Labyrinth works on so many levels that it seems to change shape even as you watch it. It is, at times, a joyless picture, and its pall of sadness can begin to weigh you down. #Quote by Stephanie Zacharek
Sadness quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#26. I want to give up my bearings, slip out of who i am, shed everything, the way a snake discards old skin. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Sadness quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#27. There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of woman is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on only one wing.
There is no hope for that family or country where there is no estimation of women, where they live in sadness. For this reason, they have to be raised first. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Sadness quotes by Erich Fromm
#28. Love, experienced thus, is a constant challenge; it is not a resting place, but moving, growing, working together; even when there is harmony or conflict, joy or sadness, is secondary to the fundamental fact that two people experience themselves, rather than by fleeing from themselves. There is only one proof for the presence of love: the depth of the relationship, and the aliveness and strength in each person concerned; this is the fruit by which love is recognized. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Sadness quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#29. Christmas is the beachhead of God's campaign against sin and sadness, darkness and death, fear and frustration. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Sadness quotes by Paulo Coelho
#30. Anyone who has known happiness will never again be able humbly to accept sadness. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Sadness quotes by Gayle Forman
#31. I wait for the fist of devestation, the collapse of a year's worth of hopes, the roar of sadness. And I do feel it. The pain of losing him. Or the idea of him. But along with that pain is something else, something quiet at first, so I have to strain for it. but when I do, I hear the sound of a door quietly clicking shut. And then the most amazing thing happens: The night is calm, but I feel a rush of wind, as if a thousand other doors have just simultaneously flung open.
I give one last glance towards Willem. Then I turn to Wolfgang. "Finished," I say.
But I suspect the opposite is true. That really, I'm just beginning. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Sadness quotes by Maggie Nelson
#32. 92. Eventually I confess to a friend some details about my weeping - its intensity, its frequency. She says (kindly) that she thinks we sometimes weep in front of a mirror not to inflame self-pity, but because we want to feel witnessed in our despair. #Quote by Maggie Nelson
Sadness quotes by John Green
#33. Issac:"I dislike living in a world without Augustus Waters."
Computer: "I don't understand-"
Issac: "Me neither. Pause #Quote by John Green
Sadness quotes by Christopher Rice
#34. Anger can give you a false sense of direction when sadness makes you feel lost. #Quote by Christopher Rice
Sadness quotes by Ned Vizzini
#35. I didn't want to wake up. I was having a much better time asleep. And that's really sad. It was almost like a reverse nightmare, like when you wake up from a nightmare you're so relieved. I woke up into a nightmare. #Quote by Ned Vizzini
Sadness quotes by Ang Lee
#36. Even the favorite reviews, the audience response is the movie is too slow, deliberately slow. But for the Chinese audience, the biggest complaint is it happens too quick. I think the historical background that build into our genes is different. American people has never been occupied. The deep sadness and sentimentality, the cultural background that relates to melodrama that we relate to and grow up with, the propaganda, I didn't imagine the difference is so big. It's a very interesting cultural phenomenon. #Quote by Ang Lee
Sadness quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#37. Sweet for a little even to fear, and sweet,
O love, to lay down fear at love's fair feet;
Shall not some fiery memory of his breath
Lie sweet on lips that touch the lips of death?
Yet leave me not; yet, if thou wilt, be free;
Love me no more, but love my love of thee.
Love where thou wilt, and live thy life; and I,
One thing I can, and one love cannot - die.
Pass from me; yet thine arms, thine eyes, thine hair,
Feed my desire and deaden my despair.
Yet once more ere time change us, ere my cheek
Whiten, ere hope be dumb or sorrow speak,
Yet once more ere thou hate me, one full kiss;
Keep other hours for others, save me this.
Yea, and I will not (if it please thee) weep,
Lest thou be sad; I will but sigh, and sleep.
Sweet, does death hurt? thou canst not do me wrong:
I shall not lack thee, as I loved thee, long.
Hast thou not given me above all that live
Joy, and a little sorrow shalt not give?
What even though fairer fingers of strange girls
Pass nestling through thy beautiful boy's curls
As mine did, or those curled lithe lips of thine
Meet theirs as these, all theirs come after mine;
And though I were not, though I be not, best,
I have loved and love thee more than all the rest.
O love, O lover, loose or hold me fast,
I had thee first, whoever have thee last;
Fairer or not, what need I know, what care?
To thy fair bud my blossom onc #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
Sadness quotes by Tahir Shah
#38. In the world of the Machiguenga, sadness could be equated with anger, and anger was a perilous emotion, by which a foreigner could lose his life. #Quote by Tahir Shah
Sadness quotes by John Lennon
#39. I can't remember anything without a sadness so deep that it hardly becomes known to me, so deep that its tears leave me a spectator of my own stupidity. #Quote by John Lennon
Sadness quotes by Embee
#40. I tried to blink back the tears that just kept coming. Eventually, I gave up and let my sight be obscured. #Quote by Embee
Sadness quotes by Samiha Totanji
#41. We never regret the love we give,
We regret giving it to the wrong people … #Quote by Samiha Totanji
Sadness quotes by Tracy Malone
#42. Every tear is washing away an old memory that hurts. It's ok this is how we let go. #Quote by Tracy Malone
Sadness quotes by Kate McGahan
#43. When you're hurting, sometimes it hurts even more when someone can't give you what you need. At these times it's important to remember that a man can only have as much compassion for another as he has for himself. Everyone is doing the best they can. #Quote by Kate McGahan
Sadness quotes by Banana Yoshimoto
#44. It was so gorgeous it almost felt like sadness. #Quote by Banana Yoshimoto
Sadness quotes by Derek Rydall
#45. You have to feel your own personal truth with a little 't' – your sadness, rage, frustration for example -- in order to get to the Truth with a big 'T'. #Quote by Derek Rydall
Sadness quotes by Allie Burke
#46. Let her go, Brendan said, and Will did.
And that was the biggest mistake of his life. Letting her go. #Quote by Allie Burke
Sadness quotes by Stanley Kunitz
#47. Toward dawn we shared with you
your hour of desolation,
the huge lingering passion
of your unearthly out cry,
as you swung your blind head
towards us and laboriously opened
a bloodshot, glistening eye,
in which we swam with terror and recognition. #Quote by Stanley Kunitz
Sadness quotes by S.K. Lessner
#48. The sadness and happiness collided in his eyes.
I wanted to cry for him, because I knew that feeling. I knew it all too well. #Quote by S.K. Lessner
Sadness quotes by David Nicholls
#49. Maybe I've just read too many novels. In novels, alcoholics are always attractive and fuuny and charming and complex, like Sebastian Flyte or ABe North in Tender in the Night, and they're drinking because of a deep, unquenchable sadness of the soul, or the terrible legacy of the First World War, whereas I just get drunk because I'm thirsty, and I like the taste of lager ... #Quote by David Nicholls
Sadness quotes by Anne Michaels
#50. Like the moon, I want to touch places
just by looking. To tell
new things at three in the morning, when we're
awake with rain or any sadness, or slendering through
reeds of sleep, surfacing to skin. #Quote by Anne Michaels
Sadness quotes by Margaret Atwood
#51. Every month there is a moon, gigantic, round, heavy, an omen. IT transits, pauses, continues on and passes out of sight, and I see despair coming towards me like famine. To feel that empty, again, again. I listen to my heart, wave upon wave, salty and red, continuing on and on, marking time. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Sadness quotes by Gordon Lightfoot
#52. Sometimes a broken dream will make you sad or make you mean. Sometimes things ain't bad as they seem. #Quote by Gordon Lightfoot
Sadness quotes by Haruki Murakami
#53. As the autumn deepens, the fathomless lakes of their eyes assume an ever more sorrowful hue. The leaves turn color, the grasses wither; the beasts sense the advance of a long, hungry season. And bowing to their vision, I too know a sadness. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Sadness quotes by Ian McEwan
#54. Blind luck, to arrive in the world with your properly formed parts in the right place, to be born to parents who were loving, not cruel, or to escape, by geographical or social accident, war or poverty. And therefore to find it so much easier to be virtuous. For a while, the case had left her numb, caring less, feeling less, going about her business, telling no one. But she became squeamish about bodies, barely able to look at her own or Jack's without feeling repelled. How was she to talk about this? Hardly plausible, to have told him that at this stage of a legal career, this one case among so many others, its sadness, its visceral #Quote by Ian McEwan
Sadness quotes by Robert Walser
#55. Listening to music, I always have exactly the same feeling: something's missing. Never will I learn the cause of this gentle sadness, never will I wish to investigate it. #Quote by Robert Walser
Sadness quotes by M. Beth Bloom
#56. Because my life is empty window of nothingness punctuated by meaningless details of totally mundane non-events. #Quote by M. Beth Bloom
Sadness quotes by Seth King
#57. I noticed something in his eyes that reminded me of myself– the sadness, the insecurity, the fatigue. #Quote by Seth King
Sadness quotes by E.J. Koh
#58. Neither happiness nor sadness are ever done with us. They are always passing by. #Quote by E.J. Koh
Sadness quotes by Cornelius Nepos
#59. The power is detested, and miserable the life, of him who wishes to be feared rather than to be loved. #Quote by Cornelius Nepos
Sadness quotes by Osho
#60. You are feeling sad? Befriend it. Have compassion for it. Sadness also has a being. Allow it, embrace it, sit with it, hold hands with it. Be friendly. Be in love with it. Sadness is beautiful! Nothing is wrong with it. Who told you that something is wrong in being sad? In fact, only sadness gives you depth. Laughter is shallow; happiness is skin-deep. Sadness goes to the very bones, to the marrow. Nothing goes as deep as sadness. #Quote by Osho
Sadness quotes by Guy Gavriel Kay
#61. I don't know a writer who doesn't feel some sense of glamour and magic and a complex, wistful sadness emanating from the expats of the twenties in France. Some of the sadness, of course, is that we weren't there. #Quote by Guy Gavriel Kay
Sadness quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
#62. For I say to you in all the sadness of conviction, that to think great thoughts you must be heroes as well as idealists. Only when you have worked alone – when you have felt around you a black gulf of solitude more isolating than that which surrounds the dying man, and in hope and in despair have trusted to your own unshaken will – then only will you have achieved. Thus only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that, a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten, men who have never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought – the subtle rapture of a postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army. #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Sadness quotes by Rick Riordan
#63. Don't dwell on things. Don't stay in one place too long. It was the only way to stay ahead of sadness. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Sadness quotes by Okakura Kakuzo
#64. In joy or sadness flowers are our constant friends. #Quote by Okakura Kakuzo
Sadness quotes by Natsume Sōseki
#65. I realized that it was not Ko-san, now safely ditched for ever, but Ko-san's mother who stood in need of pity and consideration. She must still live on in this hard unpitying world, but he, once he had jumped [in battle], had jumped beyond such things. The case could well have been different, had he never jumped; but he did jump; and that, as they say, is that. Whether this world's weather turns out fine or cloudy no more worries him; but it matters to his mother. It rains, so she sits alone indoors thinking about Ko-san. And now it's fine, so she potters out and meets a friend of Ko-san's. She hangs out the national flag to welcome the returned soliders, but her joy is made querulous with wishing that Ko-san were alive. At the public bath-house, some young girl of marriageable age helps her to carry a bucket of hot water: but her pleasure from that kindness is soured as she thinks if only I had a daughter-in-law like this girl. To live under such conditions is to live in agonies. Had she lost one out of many children, there would be consolation and comfort in the mere fact of the survivors. But when loss halves a family of just one parent and one child, the damage is as irreparable as when a gourd is broken clean across its middle. There's nothing left to hang on to. Like the sergeant's mother, she too had waited for her son's return, counting on shriveled fingers the passing of the days and nights before that special day when she would be able once more to hang on him. But #Quote by Natsume Sōseki
Sadness quotes by Marcel Proust
#66. I thought nothing at all, but I felt an immense sadness, as when two parts of one's past existence, which have been anchored near to one, and upon which one has perhaps been basing idly from day to day an unacknowledged hope, remove themselves finally, with a joyous flapping of pennants, for unknown destinations, like a pair of ships. As #Quote by Marcel Proust
Sadness quotes by Saim .A. Cheeda
#67. The irony is that there is nothing purer than sorrow. #Quote by Saim .A. Cheeda
Sadness quotes by Rainn Wilson
#68. My Favorite Kid President Quotes "Create something that will make the world more awesome." "Treat everybody like it's their birthday." "If you can't think of anything nice to say, you're not thinking hard enough." "Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody." "Give the world a reason to dance!" "Us humans are capable of war and sadness and other terrible stuff. But also CUPCAKES!" "Love changes everything so fill the world with it!" "Grown-ups who dream are the best kinds of grown-ups." "Don't be IN a party. BE a party." And my personal favorite, "Mail someone a corn dog. #Quote by Rainn Wilson
Sadness quotes by Diana Palmer
#69. How is Tate?"
He dropped into the chair across from her with an irritated sound. "Well, he isn't the man I used to know."
Her eyes held a soft sadness. "You don't know why, Colby."
"Like to bet?" he asked with a wry grin. "He called Matt Holden everything except a man, and then he stared on his mother. He was livid that she'd kept the truth about his real father from him all those years, and that she hung up on him when he called to get the truth out of her. But he was even madder when he found out that she'd moved into Holden's house and was living with him. He called her a name I won't repeat."
"What happened?" Cecily prompted impatiently when he paused.
"Senator Holden knocked him over the sofa. Leta got in the way and broke it up, but Tate left in a red rage, swearing that he'd never speak to either of them again."
It was no less than she'd expected, having known Tate for so many years. But she felt sorry for Leta and Matt. "Do you know where he went?" she asked.
"He didn't say. I wasn't willing to risk asking him, either," he added ruefully. "Tate and I have had our differences lately."
"What a mess."
"It'll blow over," he said. "People get mad, they get over it."
"Tate doesn't."
"Well, he can work on joining the human race, can't he? #Quote by Diana Palmer
Sadness quotes by Anthony Marra
#70. How often is immense sadness mistaken for courage? #Quote by Anthony Marra
Sadness quotes by Rin Chupeco
#71. We can endure any amount of sadness for the people we love. #Quote by Rin Chupeco
Sadness quotes by Natalie Ward
#72. I can't explain it, Ash. I look at you and I just can't look away. I look at you and even though I see all of the sadness and pain that you carry, what I really see is a beautiful soul buried beneath it. A beautiful soul who desperately wants to be happy. Who I want to make happy, more than anything else in the world....I, I can't explain it, I just want to fix that for you. #Quote by Natalie Ward
Sadness quotes by Jules Verne
#73. solitude is a sad thing, with no heart to which to confide your griefs. #Quote by Jules Verne
Sadness quotes by Sarah Winman
#74. You said I could be anything I wanted when I was older', I said.
She smiled and said, 'And you can be. But it's not very easy to become Jewish.'
'I know,' I said forlornly, 'I need a number.'
And she suddenly stopped smiling. #Quote by Sarah Winman
Sadness quotes by Jean Vanier
#75. Deep in our hearts there is a call to live in communion with others, a call to love, to create, to risk. But there is also that radical feeling of our poverty when faced with human misery. I am afraid to give myself. I have constructed a world of security around me...so many so-called interests which keep me from communing with others...I want to, but cannot. So many things seem to prevent me from loving and I feel them in my inmost being...so many defences and fears. I risk losing hope. I risk entering into a world of sadness and I begin to doubt myself. I have doubts about others. I doubt the value of my presence. I doubt everything.

This is our human condition. We want so much but we feel incapable. We believe in love but where is it? There are so many obstacles to break through within ourselves in order to become free and to become present to others; to their misery and to their person.

Our hope is to become freer each day in order to accept others, to be fully present to them. That is our hope. It is only in that way we will be able to give life. Come, Holy Spirit, give us hearts of peace and warmth which can serve as a refuge for those who suffer. Come, help us to be present one to another. #Quote by Jean Vanier
Sadness quotes by Marlo Thomas
#76. The rejection that we all take and the sadness and the aggravation and the loss of jobs and all of the things that we live through in our lives, without a sense of humor, I don't know how people make it. #Quote by Marlo Thomas
Sadness quotes by Charles M. Schulz
#77. Happiness does not create humor. There's nothing funny about being happy. Sadness creates humor. #Quote by Charles M. Schulz
Sadness quotes by Jeremy Hardy
#78. I think we mistake sadness for depression, because life is basically sad, and its the failure to recognize that that leads to this sort of resentment and bewilderment [...] It is, it is, and [..] you know, people just suddenly think that the world owes it to them to be happy, and they're not happy and then they think well, why aren't I happy, and makes 'em angry and then they're depressed about the fact that they're angry and they're bitter about the fact that they're depressed, and this downward cycle; why don't they just accept that life is sad and cheer up, it's not forever. #Quote by Jeremy Hardy
Sadness quotes by Christian Nestell Bovee
#79. Activity and sadness are incompatible. #Quote by Christian Nestell Bovee
Sadness quotes by Radhika Mundra
#80. Why is it that my heart hurts for that one miracle that did not happen? #Quote by Radhika Mundra
Sadness quotes by Amal El-Mohtar
#81. I am sad because I love you, because I love you so much, and because I am not a bee to buzz with you lightly. I am not a flower, not a tree, not a rain-hewn stone. I am not a storm or a cresting wave, not a thorn or a vine. I am not the sun stinging the water, not the moon on the snow. I am not a star in the dark. I am not the dew-wet wind, not the cloud-stained dawn. I am only a girl, a small, plain girl, a girl who must smear her lips in honey to be found sweet. #Quote by Amal El-Mohtar
Sadness quotes by Eleanor Estes
#82. Ginger's eyes had always been beautiful, gay, sparkling, laughing, and intelligent. Now they were even more beautiful for there were sadness and pleading, an anxious questioning, in them, too. #Quote by Eleanor Estes
Sadness quotes by Markus Peterson
#83. There cannot be love without loss, just like there cannot be happiness without sadness, or light without dark. #Quote by Markus Peterson
Sadness quotes by Sally  Thorne
#84. Are you sad?"

"Not yet." He closes his eyes.

"I'll drive for a bit." I hold out my hand.

He shakes his head. "You're my guest. I'll drive. You're tired."

"Oh, I'm your guest now?" I put as much menace as I can into my walk and he puts both hands behind his back. I smile at him and he smiles back. I'm surprised the pinprick stars above us don't explode into silver powder. The sadness I caught in his eyes is burned away by a spark of amusement.

"My hostage. My blackmailed, unwilling captive. Stockholm Shortcake. #Quote by Sally Thorne
Sadness quotes by Alice Jamieson
#85. One weekend it rained for 48 hours without stopping. The rain beat like bony fingers against the window panes. Tap. Tap. Tap. Tap. Tap. Fungus was growing on the walls. I polished off a bottle of gin sitting huddled over the two-bar electric fire and wrote a poem, one of the few that has lasted through the moves and the years. It is called 'Where Can I Go?'
If this is not the place where tears are understood where do I go to cry?
If this is not the place where my spirits can take wing where do I go to fly?
If this is not the place where my feelings can be heard where do I go to speak?
If this is not the place where you'll accept me as I am where can I go to be me?
If this is not the place where I can try and learn and grow where can I go to laugh and cry? #Quote by Alice Jamieson
Sadness quotes by Jean-Claude Duvalier
#86. I want to take this opportunity to express, one more time, my deep sadness to those countrymen who feel, rightly, that they were victims of my government. #Quote by Jean-Claude Duvalier
Sadness quotes by Jonny Wilkinson
#87. To make this announcement fills me with great sadness, but I know I have been blessed in so many ways to have experienced what I have with the England rugby team. #Quote by Jonny Wilkinson
Sadness quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#88. It's the best I have," he said in earnest.

"I know," she whispered, not ungrateful but with woe unfeigned. "It just isn't good enough. Not today. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Sadness quotes by Kristen Henderson
#89. He may take long walks
in the raining dark
almost aimlessly
to a spot of soaked grass
in a neighbor's open field.
He's decided this is the place
for you and him to meet again. #Quote by Kristen Henderson
Sadness quotes by Karen Quan
#90. We'll meet again, but you're a lifetime away, and I need you now. #Quote by Karen Quan
Sadness quotes by Mahalia Jackson
#91. Do you know most of the Jewish songs have the same trend of sadness as Negro spirituals? #Quote by Mahalia Jackson
Sadness quotes by S.C. Stephens
#92. I don't want to hurt you, and if our roles were reversed, I couldn't handle watching you with another man."
I gave him a sad smile as I whispered, "You already did."
Kellan's mouth parted, and a wave of sadness swept over his features. It broke my heart. #Quote by S.C. Stephens
Sadness quotes by Leon Bloy
#93. The only real sadness, the only real failure, the only great tragedy in life, is not to become a saint. #Quote by Leon Bloy
Sadness quotes by Will Self
#94. There is a deep sadness to American poverty, greater than the sadness of any other kind. It's because America has such an ideology of success. #Quote by Will Self
Sadness quotes by Joseph Conrad
#95. Being myself animated by feelings of affection toward my fellowmen, I am saddened by the modern system of advertising. Whatever evidence it offers of enterprise, ingenuity, impudence, and resource in certain individuals, it proves to my mind the wide prevalence of that form of mental degradation which is called gullibility. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Sadness quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#96. SADNESSES OF THE COVENANT: Sadness of God's love; Sadness of God's back [sic]; Favourite-child sadness; Sadness of b[ein]g sad in front of one's God; Sadness of the opposite of belief [sic]; What if? Sadness; Sadness of God alone in heaven; Sadness of a God who would need people to pray to Him ... #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Sadness quotes by Rachel Hawthorne
#97. The stadium went black. A colorful array of fireworks--green, yellow, white--burst into the air. A couple of seconds later, a boom sounded.
Everyone oohed and ahhed.
Even me. I'm a sucker for fireworks.
Jason pulled me closer, and everything I felt for him just seem to swell like those fireworks. It was glorious. Brighter than I'd expected it to be. Bursting forth with all sorts of emotions. Joy because he was mine. Sadness because he would be leaving. A scariness because I didn't know exactly what the future would hold for us.
Red, white, and blue streamers exploded against the black sky. The air popped.
I'd hoped for a summer boyfriend. Pick a boy. Any boy. How dumb was that?
But somehow I'd lucked out. When it came to boyfriends, I'd somehow managed to hit a home run. I was crazy about Jason. And he was crazy about me. And somehow, we'd make it work.
Another explosion of fireworks filled the sky. The colors faded away and then…a burst of red, bang, a burst of white, bang, a burst of blue, bang.
I was sure more followed, because I could hear the distant booms but I was no longer watching the fireworks.
Jason was kissing me, and we were creating our own. #Quote by Rachel Hawthorne
Sadness quotes by Anuradha Bhattacharyya
#98. He was sulking. It was natural. If it had been a daughter or son, the parent would have rushed to find out why she or he did not turn up. The parent would have imagined all sorts of harm that might have happened to the beloved child. But a lover always sulks. A lover feels betrayed. A lover feels as if the beloved has deliberately jilted him. #Quote by Anuradha Bhattacharyya
Sadness quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#99. But I also knew that there was no going back. One can never go back; nothing and no one is ever the same. All that remained was an occasional evening of sadness, the sadness that we all feel because everything passes and because man is the only animal who knows it. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Sadness quotes by Ron Baratono
#100. Feel pity for those with insecurities that rest heavy on their shoulders. They'll take every opportunity to negativity judge others. They speak with a sadness in their voice searching for something, anything to make their life feel just a little bit better. #Quote by Ron Baratono
Sadness quotes by Haruki Murakami
#101. April and May were painful, lonely months for me because I couldn't talk to you. I never knew that spring could be so painful and lonely. Better to have three Februaries than a spring like this. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Sadness quotes by Sapan Saxena
#102. I wanted to cover as much distance as possible to be away from where we were, but there was a storm which restricted me. And now, I have been praying for more snow for the last two days, but it's just melting away to plain water. #Quote by Sapan Saxena
Sadness quotes by Yvan Byeajee
#103. Events, circumstances, and experiences arise and pass away. Winning trades, losing trades, fear, greed, sadness, happiness, and eventually your own life. Everything is in a constant flux. Learn to go through it with stability of mind. A meditation practice helps a lot. #Quote by Yvan Byeajee
Sadness quotes by Jim Jarmusch
#104. It's a sad and beautiful world. #Quote by Jim Jarmusch
Sadness quotes by Malcolm Bradbury
#105. If Caribbean writers have one single unifying theme, it is a strong sense of place, and of home. There is also - always, beneath the humour, which is a West Indian characteristic - a sadness: an awareness of a past that can never really be forgotten, or forgiven. #Quote by Malcolm Bradbury
Sadness quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#106. Don't take in no strangers while I'm gone.
She sighed deeply. They ain't a soul in this world but what is a stranger to me, she said. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Sadness quotes by Amy Poehler
#107. Emotions are like passing storms, and you have to remind yourself that it won't rain forever. You just have to sit down and watch it pour outside and then peek your head out when it looks dry. #Quote by Amy Poehler
Sadness quotes by Conor Oberst
#108. They say it's better to bury your sadness in a graveyard or garden that waits for the spring to wake from its sleep and burst into green. #Quote by Conor Oberst
Sadness quotes by Bhavya Kaushik
#109. I believe that sometimes, the moment you say goodbye could be as painful as a lifetime worth of pain that you can experience while living with the memories of your loved ones. I couldn't stop myself from hallucinating about all those things that could have happened, while you were walking away from me today. I stopped walking and turned my head, expecting for you to do the same. I stayed there, motionless, and waited – for you to turn once, to smile, or wave. But you didn't. You just continued walking away from me, while I stayed there watching your silhouette becoming smaller, and smaller with time, until it disappeared completely. There was nothing else to wait.
"What happened?" she asked me when I turned my head again towards the platform.
"She let me go, finally," was all I could say. #Quote by Bhavya Kaushik
Sadness quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#110. If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another.
If you wish to know that you are safe, cause another to know that they are safe.
If you wish to better understand seemingly incomprehensible things, help another to better understand.
If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger, seek to heal the sadness or anger of another. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Sadness quotes by Timothy Long
#111. Music is the only thing in the world that can block out madness, and can be consumed in the sadness, for it helps the soul survive even if only for a short time. #Quote by Timothy Long
Sadness quotes by Joni Mitchell
#112. Inside your own self pity there you swim, in sinking down to drown her voice still haunts you, and only with your laughter can you win. #Quote by Joni Mitchell
Sadness quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#113. It's not wrong to feel sorry for yourself. Just like it's not wrong to stand in a puddle of water while the rain pours down on your head. But neither is productive, unless you enjoy feeling cold and miserable and soggy while mascara runs down your face. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Sadness quotes by Taylor Jenkins Reid
#114. Now I wonder if grief isn't something like a shell. You wear it for a long time and then one day you realize you've outgrown it. So you put it down. It doesn't mean that I want to let go of the memories of you or the love I have for you. But it does mean that I want to let go of the sadness. #Quote by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Sadness quotes by Jomny Sun
#115. i am thankful for sadness. #Quote by Jomny Sun
Sadness quotes by Dov Davidoff
#116. Standup comedy is fun. I mean other than having to experience the excruciating lonlieness and unacknowledged sadness that results in funny. #Quote by Dov Davidoff
Sadness quotes by Kitty Kelley
#117. My biography of Frank Sinatra is not paean to his music but rather an illumination of the man behind the music, who once described himself as 'an 18-karat manic-depressive who lived a life of violent emotional contradictions with an over-acute capacity for sadness as well as happiness.' #Quote by Kitty Kelley
Sadness quotes by Debasish Mridha
#118. Turn your heart into a temple of beauty and kindness.
With tears of love, wash the world from hatred and sadness. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Sadness quotes by Zicheng Hong
#119. Even if you can't get rid of the heat, as long as you can get rid of bother with the heat, your body is always on a cool terrace. Even if you can't get rid of poverty, as long as you can get rid of the sadness of poverty, your mind always lives in a comfortable abode. #Quote by Zicheng Hong
Sadness quotes by Sara Baume
#120. Art, and sadness, which last forever. #Quote by Sara Baume
Sadness quotes by Theophile Gautier
#121. Once [a cat] has given its love, what absolute confidence, what fidelity of affection! It will make itself the companion of your hours of work, of loneliness, or of sadness. It will lie the whole evening on your knee, purring and happy in your society, and leaving the company of creatures of its own society to be with you. #Quote by Theophile Gautier
Sadness quotes by Audre Lorde
#122. I want to write rage but all that comes is sadness. We have been sad long enough to make this earth either weep or grow fertile. I am an anachronism, a sport, like the bee that was never meant to fly. Science said so. I am not supposed to exist. I carry death around in my body like a condemnation. But I do live. The bee flies. There must be some way to integrate death into living, neither ignoring it nor giving in to it. #Quote by Audre Lorde
Sadness quotes by Pierre Corneille
#123. We never taste a perfect joy; our happiest successes are mixed with sadness. #Quote by Pierre Corneille
Sadness quotes by Zoe McKnight
#124. Resentment is the worst. Because unlike sadness or anger, it lingers, dangling overhead like a chandelier of shattered glass. At any given moment a shard can fall and slice through an old wound. #Quote by Zoe McKnight
Sadness quotes by Florence Griffith Joyner
#125. To do justice to a lifelong dream of being a writer, I must give it the intense concentration and focus I gave to track. To do both with excellence is not possible. It is with a sense of sadness and joyous anticipation that I leave track and move on. #Quote by Florence Griffith Joyner
Sadness quotes by Ivan Goncharov
#126. Ah! This is retribution for Promethean fire! Besides being patient, you must also love this sadness and respect your doubts and questions. They are an abundant excess, a luxury of life, and they appear more at the summits of happiness, when you have no crude desires. They are not born in the midst of mundanity. They have no place where there is grief and want. The masses go along without knowing the fog of doubts or the anguish of questions. But for anyone who has encountered them at the right time they are dear visitors, not a hammer.'

'But there's no coping with them. They bring anguish and indifference to nearly everything.' she added indecisively.

'But for how long? Afterward they refresh life,' he said. 'They lead to an abyss from which nothing can be gained, and they force you to look again at life, with even greater love. They summon up your tested powers to struggle with it, as if expressly to let them sleep afterward.'

'This fog and these specters torment me!' she complained. 'Everything is bright and all of a sudden a sinister shadow is cast over life! Are there no means against this?'

'What do you mean? Your buttress is in life! Without it, life is sickening, even without any questions!'

Sadness quotes by James Sallis
#127. The dam of my eyes broke, and tears flooded the land. #Quote by James Sallis
Sadness quotes by Lauren Oliver
#128. I think of the quietness of Julian's voice as he said I love you, the steadiness of his rib cage rising and falling against my back, as we sleep.
I love you, Julian. But the words don't come. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Sadness quotes by Anton Chekhov
#129. TRIGORIN
Why do I hear a note of sadness that wrings my heart in this cry of a pure soul? If at any time you should have need of my life, come and take it. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Sadness quotes by Edwidge Danticat
#130. Perhaps Hurston saw in her mother, Lucy, a version of Persephone, who is so missed when she's gone that the world literally starts to die. This type of grief, as Toni Morrison writes in Sula, has no top and no bottom, "just circles and circles of sorrow. #Quote by Edwidge Danticat
Sadness quotes by Vera Jane Cook
#131. It was perfect. The birds and the sky and the yellow leaves of Autumn. This was what it was, this life. It was tenuous and frail and yet fraught with beauty, and with beauty comes sadness. If you opt in to loving then you opt in to being human, to having your heart break a million times over. It's a circle of sorts. The more you go round the more laughter you find, the more laughter, the more joy, the more sadness. That is what life is. I felt something warm in my heart and I reached for Angus' hand. #Quote by Vera Jane Cook
Sadness quotes by Nick Alexander
#132. Sometimes you feel so happy, it feels almost the same as sadness. #Quote by Nick Alexander
Sadness quotes by Paula Hawkins
#133. I can't blame this all for my drinking -- I can't blame my parents or my childhood, and abusive uncle or some terrible tragedy. It's my fault. I was a drinker anyway -- I've always liked to drink. But I did become sadder, and sadness gets boring after a while, for the sad person and for everyone around them. And then I went from being a drinker to being a drunk, and there's nothing more boring than that. #Quote by Paula Hawkins
Sadness quotes by Sahaj Oberoi
#134. Only strong people can find happiness from the sadness surrounding them. #Quote by Sahaj Oberoi
Sadness quotes by Mary Downing Hahn
#135. What's the meaning of this?" Papa strode toward us. "You've disturbed the entire household, Andrew."
Mama gripped his arm. "For goodness sake, Henry, don't frighten the child. Haven't you done enough damage? I told you not to whip him!"
Papa made an effort to calm down. Taking a deep breath, he squatted in front of me. "What's troubling you, son?" he asked. "Surely a spanking didn't cause this."
Aching with sadness, I put my arms around his neck. I'd won, I'd finally beaten Andrew. I'd thought I'd be happy, but I wasn't. "I don't want to leave you and Mama," I sobbed.
Papa held me tight. "Now, now," he said. "Where did you get such a silly notion? You aren't going anywhere."
While Papa comforted me, Andrew climbed onto his father's shoulders, piggyback style. No one saw him but me. No one heard him say, "Hush Drew, you're shaming me in front of everyone."
Ignorant of Andrew's presence, Papa shivered. "Fall's coming. Feel the nip in the air?"
Hannah and Theo were waiting for us at the bottom of the steps. "Mama," Theo whispered, "is Andrew sick again?"
Mama shook her head, but Theo looked unconvinced. Slipping his hand in Hannah's, he watched Papa lay me on my bed.
On the other side of the room, Andrew took a seat in the rocking chair. It was obvious he didn't enjoy being invisible. Staring at Hannah and Theo, he rocked the chair vigorously. When that didn't get their attention, he sang "I've Been Working on the Railroad" at the top #Quote by Mary Downing Hahn
Sadness quotes by Phen Weston
#136. The wind took me away from you,
Draped with fear, waking nightmare,
I lost all sense of who I could become,
Your exuberant hold slipped away,
Irresolute, impulsive, irreconcilable. #Quote by Phen Weston
Sadness quotes by John Greenleaf Whittier
#137. And still we love the evil cause
And of the just effect complain;
We tread upon life's broken laws
And murmur at our self-inflicted pain. #Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier
Sadness quotes by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
#138. In your madness you said you loved me," she murmured shyly.

His humor fled, and the smile left her lips as she continued, "You said it before, too. When the storm struck, I asked you to love me, and you said you did." Her voice was the barest of whispers.

Ruark's gaze turned away from her, and he rubbed the bandage on his leg before he spoke. "Strange that madness should speak the truth, but truth it is." He met her questioning eyes directly. "Aye, I love you." The pain of longing marked his face with a momentary sadness. "And that is madness, in all truth."

Shanna raised herself form his side and sat on her heels, staring down at him. "Why do you love me?" Her tone was wondrous. "I beset you at every turn. I deny you as a fit mate. I have betrayed you into slavery and worse. There is no sanity in your plea at all. How can you love me?"

"Shanna! Shanna! Shanna!" he sighed, placing his fingers on her hand and gently tracing the lines of her finely boned fingers. "What man would boast the wisdom of his love? How many time has this world heard, 'I don't care, I love.' Do I count your faults and sins to tote them in a book?"

...

"I dream of unbelievable softness. I remember warmth at my side the likes of which can set my heart afire. I see in the dark before me softly glowing eyes of aqua, once tender in a moment of love, then flashing with defiance and anger, now dark and blue with some stirring I know I have cau #Quote by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
Sadness quotes by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
#139. If you were this fish, would you prefer me to be eating you with sadness or with delight? #Quote by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
Sadness quotes by Anna De Noailles
#140. Consider in his spiritual martyr this being who lies with closed eyes, dislocated like the victim of a brutal accident who no longer requires care or rescue. Count the stabbing wounds of the hideous disappointment in the human imagination. Auscultate this pensive desert where alternate the rale and the silence. Feel pity for the grief that calls not only for death, but for a disgracied death, and receive, o World, this weight of trampled dream in the paradise with no conscience of your vain eternity ! #Quote by Anna De Noailles
Sadness quotes by Runaway Bunny
#141. I sung to her at night. Every night. The same song. And she would do this thing, when she would close her eyes. And it felt like she was connecting with the music. That she was depicting every note, every sound, every word. I would watch her, watch her like she was my saving grace, like my angel. And at the chorus, the corners of her thin lips would pull up, and a small grin would form on her face. Her eyes would crinkle, and my heart would drop. #Quote by Runaway Bunny
Sadness quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#142. God sent his Singers upon earth
With songs of sadness and of mirth,
That they might touch the hearts of men,
And bring them back to heaven again. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Sadness quotes by Marie-Helene Bertino
#143. When you're alone, you are in the right place to watch sadness approach like storm clouds over an open field. You can sit in a chair and get ready for it. As it moves through you, you can reach out your hands and feel all the edges. When it passes and you can drink coffee again you even miss it because it has been loyal to you like a boyfriend. #Quote by Marie-Helene Bertino
Sadness quotes by Sergei Yesenin
#144. Goodbye, my friend, goodbye
My love, you are in my heart.
It was preordained we should part
And be reunited by and by.
Goodbye: no handshake to endure.
Let's have no sadness - furrowed brow.
There's nothing new in dying now
Though living is no newer. #Quote by Sergei Yesenin
Sadness quotes by Molly McAdams
#145. Kinda pointless to fight for what you want when what you want continues to break your heart #Quote by Molly McAdams
Sadness quotes by Adriana Trigiani
#146. I learned that I wasn't happy. It's a terrifying thing to admit. It puts everyone around you in a state of paralysis because they think that they are somehow responsible for your sadness and can fix it. Of course they cannot. I know happiness exists somewhere and if I knew where, I would go to it and claim it. I realize I have spent my life reacting to things and not initiating them. #Quote by Adriana Trigiani
Sadness quotes by Cornelia Funke
#147. How ridiculous that water ran out of your eyes when your heart hurt. Tragic heroines in books tended to be amazingly beautiful. Not a word about swollen eyes or a red nose. "Crying always gives me a red nose," thought Elinor. "I expect that's why I'll never be in any book. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Sadness quotes by Kim Cormack
#148. In the woods lay a bleeding angel in all her glory. Her arms posed gracefully above her head and her hair soaked in the mud, the blood and feces in which she lay. Dying, fading into the other realm, her form christened by the rain as though the trees had begun to weep upon her in sadness for the brutality she had endured. (The Children of Ankh series) #Quote by Kim Cormack
Sadness quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#149. There is no point treating a depressed person as though she were just feeling sad, saying, 'There now, hang on, you'll get over it.' Sadness is more or less like a head cold- with patience, it passes. Depression is like cancer. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Sadness quotes by Mitch Albom
#150. Her initial elation had given way to something unexpected: a heightened sadness. Even depression. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Sadness quotes by Jon Paul Fiorentino
#151. Steven dreamed of you the very second
you died
(So the poem goes)
and you may have visited him
But I'm pretty sure you don't believe
in poems #Quote by Jon Paul Fiorentino
Sadness quotes by Bel Arnesto
#152. The person who will make you feel different, who will tell you about your imperfections, who will show you and will let you experience the things you've thought that only exist in your dreams, can be happiness and or sadness.
Yes they are real, the person that you have love for a long time in your mind is living here on earth he/she might come and enter your life anytime and at any place.
What matters is treasure him/her/them and let them be part of your breathtaking life. #Quote by Bel Arnesto
Sadness quotes by Rosie Batty
#153. Luke was a little boy in a growing body that felt pain and sadness and fear for his mum, and he always believed he would be safe with his dad. #Quote by Rosie Batty
Sadness quotes by Brian Selznick
#154. Maybe the play wasn't about miracles. No, maybe it was about the passage of time, and the need for patience, and the ability to forgive. Maybe Shakespeare was saying that even in a world where miracles can happen, there's still going to be pain, and loss, and regret. Because sometimes people die and you can't bring them back. That's what life is Joseph realized, miracles and sadness, side by side. #Quote by Brian Selznick
Sadness quotes by Avijeet Das
#155. It is amazing when two people can mean so much to each other. When the happiness of the other person means your own happiness. And the sadness of the other person means your own sadness. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Sadness quotes by Marguerite Duras
#156. That she had so completely recovered her sanity was a source of sadness to her. One should never be cured of one's passion. #Quote by Marguerite Duras
Sadness quotes by Elisa Albert
#157. For as long as wimmin have had the temerity to experience feelings of anger, sadness, frustration, and deep resentment, patriarchal society has denied them these feelings, and, in fact, punished them heartily for feeling anything at all. #Quote by Elisa Albert
Sadness quotes by Toshikazu Kawaguchi
#158. When in the presence of someone with whom you have a bond, and to whom you have entrusted your feelings, it is hard to lie and get away with it. The truth just wants to come flowing out. This is especially the case when you are trying to hide your sadness or vulnerability. It is much easier to conceal sadness from a stranger, or from someone you don't trust. #Quote by Toshikazu Kawaguchi
Sadness quotes by Dalai Lama
#159. If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger, seek to heal the sadness or anger of another. Those others are waiting for you now. They are looking to you for guidance, for help, for courage, for strength, for understanding, and for assurance at this hour. Most of all, they are looking to you for love. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Sadness quotes by Dominic Riccitello
#160. I never expected to fall in love. I never expected to float or fall a thousand feet and create the crevice I called my life. But the thing with crevices, there's always a top and always a bottom. And the feeling of appreciation when you look from the top and understand how fast it can all come crashing down - it's more than beautiful and more than words could ever explain. #Quote by Dominic Riccitello
Sadness quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#161. An emotionally locked person refuses to let go of their sad memories and live in the now. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Sadness quotes by Dominic Riccitello
#162. I used to love September, but now it just rhymes with remember. #Quote by Dominic Riccitello
Sadness quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#163. That was the change in her from ten years ago; that, indeed, was her reward, this haunting, magical sadness which spoke straight to the heart and struck silence; it was the completion of her beauty. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Sadness quotes by Neve Campbell
#164. There's a feeling of elation that comes after getting off stage and then there's a feeling of utter sadness that comes after getting off the stage. #Quote by Neve Campbell
Sadness quotes by Harry Crews
#165. The real artist with no tear in his eye and no sadness in his heart, puts the pages in the fire and does it again!"
"All art is a metaphor it's by telling you one thing when your mean something else.
The Old Man in the Sea is not about fishing!"
"Writing a book is like torture that you don't know, but after it's done and there it is. It's a joy like unlike anything else, I think it's the closest that a man can come to knowing what is feels like to have a baby. #Quote by Harry Crews

Sadness quotes by David Levithan
#168. Tiny: but there is the word, this word phil wrayson taught me once: weltschmerz. it's the depression you feel when the world as it is does not line up with the world as you think it should be. i live in a big goddamned weltzschermz ocean, you know? and so do you. #Quote by David Levithan
Sadness quotes by Federico Garcia Lorca
#169. You can't look at yourself
in the ocean.
Your looks fall apart
like tendrils of light.
Night on earth.

- The Great Sadness #Quote by Federico Garcia Lorca
Sadness quotes by Byron Katie
#170. I've heard people say that they cling to their painful thoughts
because they're afraid that without them they wouldn't be activists for peace.
"If I feel peaceful," they say, "why would I bother taking action at all?"
My answer is "Because that's what love does."
To think that we need sadness or outrage
to motivate us to do what's right is insane.
As if the clearer and happier you get, the less kind you become.
As if when someone finds freedom, she just sits around all day
with drool running down her chin.
My experience is the opposite.
Love is action. #Quote by Byron Katie
Sadness quotes by Jane Goodall
#171. Farm animals feel pleasure and sadness, excitement and resentment, depression, fear, and pain. They are far more aware and intelligent than we ever imagined ... they are individuals in their own right. #Quote by Jane Goodall
Sadness quotes by Jarod Kintz
#172. I cry, but not for myself. There's too much sadness in this world to waste a moment with self-pity, when making others smile will also make me smile. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Sadness quotes by Sue Fitzmaurice
#173. People come and go from our lives all the time. It's not our fault that people leave. The Universe is just making room for new people with new lessons. #Quote by Sue Fitzmaurice
Sadness quotes by Richard Flanagan

Sadness quotes by Camelia C.
#176. There are many backstabbing friends who in your hard time will ignore you, without to ask something from them. You just are filled with sadness and they don't confide in you anymore.
The downside of your hard time is being considered rude, negative, boorish and insistent. #Quote by Camelia C.
Sadness quotes by Lillian Hellman
#177. I think I meant an intimation of sadness, a first recognition that there was so much to understand that one might never find one's way and the first signs, perhaps, that for a nature like mine, the way would not be easy. I cannot be sure that I felt all that then, although I can be sure that it was in the fig tree, a few years later, that I was first puzzled by the conflict which would haunt me, harm me, and benefit me the rest of my life: simply, the stubborn, relentless, driving desire to be alone as it came into conflict with the desire not to be alone when I wanted not to be. #Quote by Lillian Hellman
Sadness quotes by Maureen Child
#178. Sometimes you have to get sad before you get happy 'cause otherwise how would you know the difference? #Quote by Maureen Child
Sadness quotes by Pablo Neruda
#179. Clenched Soul
We have lost even this twilight.
No one saw us this evening hand in hand.
While the blue night dropped on the world.
I have seen from my window
the fiesta of sunset in the distant mountain tops.
Sometimes a piece of sun
burned like a coin in my hand.
I remembered you with my soul clenched
in the sadness of mine that you know.
Where we you then?
Who else was there?
Saying what?
Why will the whole of love come on me suddenly
when I am sad and feel you are far away?
The book fell that always closed at twilight
and my blue sweater rolled like a hurt dog at my feet.
Always, always you recede through the evenings
towards the twilight erasing statues. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Sadness quotes by Swami Dhyan Giten
#180. Awareness is a choiceless consciousness. Awareness is the capacity to embrace, accept and include both joy and sadness, love and aloneness, light and darkness, male and female qualities and life and death.
Through saying "yes" and accepting both tendencies and including whatever aspect that happens in the moment, we meet our unlimited and boundless inner being. The inner man and woman need to find their own independence and integrity. #Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten
Sadness quotes by Jada Pinkett Smith
#181. The War on Men Through the Degradation of Woman" - "How is man to recognize his full self, his full power through the eye's of an incomplete woman? The woman who has been stripped of Goddess recognition and diminished to a big ass and full breast for physical comfort only. The woman who has been silenced so she may forget her spiritual essence because her words stir too much thought outside of the pleasure space. The woman who has been diminished to covering all that rots inside of her with weaves and red bottom shoes.

I am sure the men, who restructured our societies from cultures that honored woman, had no idea of the outcome. They had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection.

There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can't recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status. It is painful to witness the betrayal when a woman takes him up on that offer.

He doesn't recognize that the [creation] of a half woman has contributed to his repressed anger and frustration of feeling he is not enough. He then may love no woman or keep many half women as his prize.

He doesn't recognize that it's his submersion in the imbalanced warrior culture, where violence is the means of getting respect and power, as the reason he can break the face of the woman who bore him 4 four children.

Sadness quotes by Liu Cixin
#182. From the depths of his memory arose a tingling sadness, fragile and pure like morning dew, tinged with a rosy hue. #Quote by Liu Cixin
Sadness quotes by Abigail George
#183. Yes, I know that now that there is truth in beauty and beauty in truth. My nature is to be depressive and come out of it and write, and enjoy writing and feeling as if I have a passion and excitement and love and euphoria for it and then I go 'back to sleep again' where I can eat and watch television and not work, not be productive and then just as if a magic switch is turned on I can do it all over again. I don't mind the being depressed part. Sometimes it seems to fuel me. The anger though is gone now that was there in my twenties and even earlier in my youth. Your voice is Tolstoy's, Hemingway's, Updike's, Styron's, Mcewan's, Greene's, Fugard's, Kundera's, Rilke's while I am the incarnate of Radcliffe Hall crossing both genders effortlessly. You betray nothing. There is son in the picture. A small boy but you don't introduce him to me. Obsessions are unhealthy creatures. They make you mentally ill, emotionally unstable; leave you with a chemistry of deep sadness in your life. I have my writing. It keeps me from disintegrating into fractions. I should stop now before I begin to make myself cry. #Quote by Abigail George
Sadness quotes by Lewis Carroll
#184. Scarce was the verdict spoken,
When that still calm was broken,
A childish form hath burst into the throng;
With tears and looks of sadness,
That bring no news of gladness,
But tell too surely something hath gone wrong! #Quote by Lewis Carroll
Sadness quotes by P.G. Wodehouse

Sadness quotes by Susie Bright
#188. I had no idea that mothering my own child would be so healing to my own sadness from my childhood. #Quote by Susie Bright

Sadness quotes by Sarah Kay
#190. Me - I was not born with enough fuel. My anger often melts into sadness, it will just disintegrate into shame or fear, my clenched teeth release into chatter. #Quote by Sarah Kay
Sadness quotes by Michael Leunig
#191. Existential philosophy, poetry and art - just like sadness - were all unavoidable to a tender young man in the meat works. #Quote by Michael Leunig
Sadness quotes by Frederic S. Durbin
#192. The older I become, the more I understand Mr. Girandole's look of sadness and what he must have been thinking then. These games with tangerine peels... the times of little wide-eyed girls arriving on the terrace, and boys with notebooks... none of it lasted for more than a breath. Time never turned backward. Summer gave way to winter, and summer came again, and year by year, the vines lengthened, and the sharp detail faded from the statues- scales becoming ripples, passion becoming tranquility. Each time Mr. Girandole saw Grandmother, he looked at her like we all ought to look at one another, every time. #Quote by Frederic S. Durbin
Sadness quotes by Stuart McLean
#193. We do this thing. We open our hearts to the world around us. And the more we do that, the more we allow ourselves to love, the more we are bound to find ourselves one day - like Dave, and Morley, and Sam, and Stephanie - standing in the kitchen of our live, surrounded by the ones we love, and feeling empty, and alone, and sad, and lost for words, because one of our loved ones, who should be there, is missing. Mother or father, brother or sister, wife or husband, or a dog or cat. It doesn't really matter. After a while, each death feels like all the deaths, and you stand there like eveyone else has stood there before you, while the big wind of sadness blows around and through you.
"He was a great dog," said Dave.
"Yes," said Morley. "He was a great dog. #Quote by Stuart McLean
Sadness quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#194. Hearts united in pain and sorrow
will not be separated by joy and happiness.
Bonds that are woven in sadness
are stronger than the ties of joy and pleasure.
Love that is washed by tears
will remain eternally pure and faithful. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Sadness quotes by Matt Haig
#195. Memories were just future sadness stored away #Quote by Matt Haig
Sadness quotes by Meg Haston
#196. But every time I near sleep, I'm scared shitless. Because the memories are coming faster now, pouring through me, as if I've broken the handle on the faucet. They are coming, no matter how much is hurts. And all I can do is hold my breath and try not to drown. #Quote by Meg Haston
Sadness quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#197. Fireheart, why do you cry?"
"Because I am lost. And do not know the way #Quote by Sarah J. Maas

#198. ... and we may find that sadness, anger, and gravity all have the same effect… they simply weigh us down. #Quote by Debbie Lynn - 360 Degrees Full Circle
Sadness quotes by Tove Jansson
#199. It was definitely finished, and for one moment the sadness of completion overtook the Hemulen. #Quote by Tove Jansson
Sadness quotes by Guy Gavriel Kay
#200. There was some sadness in how that could happen, Tai thought: falling out of love with something that had shaped you. Or even people who had? But if you didn't change at least a little, where were the passages of a life? Didn't learning, changing, sometimes mean letting go of what had once been seen as true? #Quote by Guy Gavriel Kay
