sorrows Quotes

Seven of the best book quotes about sorrows
  1. #1
    “Sir, you have done enough, and have perform’d
    A saint-like sorrow: no fault could you make,
    Which you have not redeem’d; indeed, paid down
    More penitence than done trespass: at the last,
    Do as the heavens have done, forget your evil;
    With them forgive yourself.”
  2. #2
    “One by one they dragged us forward, and a man shouted out prices to the crowd of likely buyers and baby Ruth cried, and Momma shook like the last leaf on a tree, and Poppa… and Poppa, he didn’t want them to bust up our family like we were sheep or hogs.”
  3. #3
    “When you recognize that you will thrive not in spite of your losses and sorrows, but because of them, that you would not have chosen the things that happened in your life, but you are grateful for them, that you will hold the empty bowls eternally in your hands, but you also have the capacity to fill them?
    THE WORD FOR THAT IS HEALING.”
  4. #4
    “He does not ask much of us, merely a thought of Him from time to time, a little act of adoration, sometimes to ask for His grace, sometimes to offer Him your sufferings, at other times to thank Him for the graces, past and present, He has bestowed on you, in the midst of your troubles to take solace in Him as often as you can.”
  5. #5
    “A feeling normally as individual as the ache of separation from those one loves suddenly became a feeling in which all shared alike and-together with fear-the greatest affliction of the long period of exile that lay ahead.”
  6. #6

  7. #7
    “I wish to weep
    but sorrow is
    stupid.
    I wish to believe
    but belief is a
    graveyard.”
