Sadness

Melancholy is at the bottom of everything, just as at the end of all rivers is the sea. Can it be otherwise in a world where nothing lasts, where all that we have loved or shall love must die? Is death, then, the secret of life? The gloom of an eternal mourning enwraps, more or less closely, every serious and thoughtful soul, as night enwraps the universe. - Henri Frederic Amiel

Never give way to melancholy; resist it steadily, for the habit will encroach. - Sydney Smith

Sadness does not inhere in things; it does not reach us from the world and through mere contemplation of the world. It is a product of our own thought. We create it out of whole cloth. - Emile Durkheim

Sadness flies away on the wings of time. - Jean de La Fontaine
