Better by far you should forget and smile
than that you should remember and be sad.
– Christina Georgina Rossetti
If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labor.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.
– Og Mandino
The bitterest tears shed over graves are
for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
For all sad words of tongue and pen,
the saddest are these,
‘It might have been.’
– John Greenleaf Whittier
Usually when people are sad,
they don’t do anything.
They just cry over their condition.
But when they get angry,
they bring about a change.
– Malcolm X
I cry for the time that you were almost mine,
I cry for the memories I’ve left behind,
I cry for the pain, the lost, the old the new,
I cry for the times I thought I had you
What may seem depressing or even tragic
to one person may seem
like an absolute scream to another person,
especially if he has had
between four and seven beers.
– Dave Barry
Unfortunately, I think I’m going
to be typecast in Hollywood
as the kid who can cry.
I don’t like putting audiences
through those emotional ups and downs.
I don’t want people to think
Dana Hill is so depressing all she does is cry.
But the parts are so good, I can’t turn them down.
– Dana Hill
Nobody really cares if you’re miserable,
so you might as well be happy.
– Cynthia Nelms
I had rather have a fool make me merry,
than experience make me sad.
– William Shakespeare
Not all scars show, not all wounds heal
Sometimes you can’t always see
The pain someone feels
It is quite gratifying to feel guilty
if you haven’t done anything wrong:
how noble! Whereas it is rather hard
and certainly depressing
to admit guilt and to repent.
– Hannah Arend
