♥ The beauty of the world…has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.
Virginia Woolf

 

♥ At the bottom of her heart, however, she was waiting for something to happen. Like shipwrecked sailors, she turned despairing eyes upon the solitude of her life, seeking afar off some white sail in the mists of the horizon. She did not know what this chance would be, what wind would bring it her, towards what shore it would drive her, if it would be a shallop or a three-decker, laden with anguish or full of bliss to the portholes. But each morning, as she awoke, she hoped it would come that day; she listened to every sound, sprang up with a start, wondered that it did not come; then at sunset, always more saddened, she longed for the morrow.
Gustave Flaubert (Madame Bovary)

 

♥ One fire burns out another’s burning,
One pain is lessen’d by another’s anguish.
William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)

 

♥ When we suffer anguish we return to early childhood because that is the period in which we first learnt to suffer the experience of total loss. It was more than that. It was the period in which we suffered more total losses than in all the rest of our life put together.
John Berger

 

♥In struggling against anguish one never produces serenity; the struggle against anguish only produces new forms of anguish.
Simone Weil

♥And thus the heart will break, yet brokenly live on.
George Gordon Byron

♥Adversity is the first path to truth.
George Gordon Byron
