Sorrow Quotes


Characterized by deep distress, one due to the misfortune of ourselves or others, a sense of loss or tremendous disappointment, sorrow can easily consume us, pulling us deeper down into a sense of hopeless resignation. And while we cannot escape sorrow, we must remember not to allow it to control us or consume us. Sorrow quotes help us to understand that sorrow is part of the greater human experience. As Dirk Benedict once said, “If we wait until our lives are free from sorrow or difficulty, then we wait forever. And miss the entire point.” For without great sorrow we cannot experience great or lasting joy. Reference.com Definition of Sorrow
