Sad

John Hardon

A simple formula for unhappiness: trust in creatures.

Harriet Beecher Stowe

Stephen Covey

Setbacks are inevitable; misery is a choice.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.

Charles Beard

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.

Author Unknown

If you know of a skeleton hidden away
In a closet, and guarded and kept from the day
In the dark; whose showing, whose sudden display
Would cause grief and sorrow and lifelong dismay,
It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

If you know of a spot in the life of a friend
(We all have spots concealed, world without end)
Whose touching his heartstrings would sadden or rend,
Till the shame of its showing no grieving could mend,
It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

H.W. Longfellow

Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.

Mathematics is not only for solving numbers. It’s also for dividing sorrow, subtracting sadness, adding happiness and multiplying love and forgiveness.

Thomas Jefferson

A mind always employed is always happy.  This is the true secret, the grand recipe, for felicity.

Charlie Brown

This is my “depressed stance.” When you’re depressed it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you’ll start to feel better. If you’re going to get any joy out of being depressed, you’ve got to stand like this.

St. Augustine

Indeed, man wishes to be happy even when he so lives as to make happiness impossible.

John Paul II

How often the shadows of loneliness engulfing a soul can be blown away by the light and warmth of a smile, or of a pleasant word.

Francis Fernandez

Sadness debilitates us. It is like the heavy clay accumulating on the boots of a walker which, as well as befouling them, makes each step more difficult for him.

Robert Herjavec

If you don’t have fun and exude joy, it’s going to be really hard to get customers to buy from you.

Dale Carnegie

It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.

Martha Washington

I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.

Frances Hodgson Burnett

One of the new things people began to find out in the last century was that thoughts—just mere thoughts—are as powerful as electric batteries—as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison. To let a sad thought or a bad one get into your mind is as dangerous as letting a scarlet fever germ get into your body. If you let it stay there after it has got in you may never get over it as long as you live… surprising things can happen to any one who, when a disagreeable or discouraged thought comes into his mind, just has the sense to remember in time and push it out by putting in an agreeable determinedly courageous one. Two things cannot be in one place.
