The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.
But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.
And so being young and dipped in folly I fell in love with melancholy.
Deep in earth my love is lying/And I must weep alone.
I felt that I breathed an atmosphere of sorrow.
Because it was my crime to have no one on Earth who cared for me, or loved me.
If your sadness is reminding you that you are incomplete, it is good. Make use of your sadness to grow. When sadness sets in, if you become more compassionate, more caring, and more loving, you have some sense in you.
Comedy can be a cathartic way to deal with personal trauma.
About a third of my cases are suffering from no clinically definable neurosis, but from the senselessness and emptiness of their lives. This can be defined as the general neurosis of our times.
No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.
If you have tears, prepare to shed them now.
