24 Sorrow Quotes from Literature

When sorrows come, they come not single spies,
But in battalions! ~ Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare There is no dealing with great sorrow as if it were under the control of our wills. It is a terrible phenomenon, whose laws we must study, and to whose conditions we must submit, if we would mitigate it. ~ Uncle Silas by J. Sheridan Le Fanu "Sorrow concealed, like an oven stopp'd,
Doth burn the heart to cinders where it is." ~ Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare But the moon came slowly up in all her gentle glory, and the stars looked out, and through the small compass of the grated window, as through the narrow crevice of one good deed in a murky life of guilt, the face of Heaven shone bright and merciful. He raised his head; gazed upward at the quiet sky, which seemed to smile upon the earth in sadness, as if the night, more thoughtful than the day, looked down in sorrow on the sufferings and evil deeds of men; and felt its peace sink deep into his heart. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens For there is no despair so absolute as that which comes with the first moments of our first great sorrow, when we have not yet known what it is to have suffered and be healed, to have despaired and to have recovered hope. ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot "I have read in your face, as plain as if it was a book, that but for some trouble and sorrow we should never know half the good there is about us." ~ The Haunted Man by Charles Dickens Anne always remembered the silvery, peaceful beauty and fragrant calm of that night. It was the last night before sorrow touched her life; and no life is ever quite the same again when once that cold, sanctifying touch has been laid upon it. ~ Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery "It's all very well to read about sorrows and imagine yourself living through them heroically, but it's not so nice when you really come to have them, is it?" ~ Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery The woods are never solitary--they are full of whispering, beckoning, friendly life. But the sea is a mighty soul, forever moaning of some great, unshareable sorrow, which shuts it up into itself for all eternity. ~ Anne's House of Dreams by Lucy Maud Montgomery It was a long and gloomy night that gathered on me, haunted by the ghosts of many hopes, of many dear remembrances, many errors, many unavailing sorrows and regrets. ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
