sad

Well, let me leave it at this: if God does exist, He would have a great deal be sad about. And if He doesn’t exist, then that too would make Him quite sad, I imagine. So to answer your question, God must be sad.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

The only thing worse than being sad is for others to know you are sad.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

The only way to overcome sadness is to consume it.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

Every widow wakes one morning, perhaps after years of pure and unwavering grieving, to realize she slept a good night’s sleep, and will be able to eat breakfast, and doesn’t hear her husband’s ghost all the time, but only some of the time. Her grief is replaced with a useful sadness. Every parent who loses a child finds a way to laugh again. The timbre begins to fade. The edge dulls. The hurt lessens. Every love is carved from loss. Mine was. Yours is. Your great-great-great-grandchildren’s will be. But we learn to live in that love.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

I am always sad, I think. Perhaps this signifies that I am not sad at all, because sadness is something lower than your normal disposition, and I am always the same thing. Perhaps I am the only person in the world, then, who never becomes sad. Perhaps I am lucky.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

You have a choice in this world, I believe, about how to tell sad stories, and we made the funny choice.

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

I didn’t really want to live, so anything that was an investment in time made me angry… but also I just felt sad. When the hopelessness is hurting you, it’s the fixtures and fittings that finish you off.

Angelina Jolie

One cries because one is sad. For example, I cry because others are stupid, and that makes me sad.

Dr. Sheldon Cooper, The Big Bang Theory

The saddest thing was actually getting fed up with one another. It’s like growing up in a family. When you get to a certain age, you want to go off and get your own girl and your own car, split up a bit.

George Harrison

I miss the comfort in being sad.

Kurt Cobain, Nirvana
