Accept - then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life.

Sorrow is an inextricable part of life. Whoever lives experiences it. There's no escape. If we understand this then we would stop bewailing every misfortune that occurs. Life is a bargain. You want joy but you can't have it without suffering. You must accept the whole package.

Every thought a person dwells upon, whether he expresses it or not, either damages or improves his life.

Meditation has taught me that suffering is a crucial part of life rather than something to be overcome.

Where there is pleasure there is pain. You cannot have one without the other. We demand more pleasure and therefore invite more pain.

The world is a mere succession of fortunes made and lost, lessons learned and forgotten and learned again.

Nothing can trouble you but your own imagination.

When we suffer, notice that our suffering is often made of thoughts. As our inner commentary ceases, notice that the suffering stops, too.

If we do not express our disappointment, it will start to build up and transform into a more difficult emotion, such as anger, hurt, or even betrayal. It is best to share your disappointment in a non-critical way, rather than leaving it to build up inside you.

I wanna outrace the speed of pain.

Rather than persecuting yourself or feeling that something terribly wrong is happening, right there in the moment of sadness and longing, could you relax and touch the limitless space of the human heart?

I am out with lanterns, looking for myself.

Having depression is being in an abusive relationship with yourself.

Depression is the most unpleasant thing I have ever experienced. It is that absence of being able to envisage that you will ever be cheerful again. The absence of hope. That very deadened feeling, which is so very different from feeling sad. Sad hurts but it's a healthy feeling. It is a necessary thing to feel. Depression is very different.

I've seen darkness but always kept one thing in my heart: hope.

To tell you the truth, I've just been avoiding everything.

And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn't really change the fact that you have what you have. Good and bad.

I knew it wasn't too important, but it made me sad anyway.

Things not to joke about: depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar, ptsd, cancer, panic attacks, autism, ocd, people who have died, disabilities, rape, suicide.

As a person who suffers from depression, there are days when the enormity of it, feels like it defines you. But remember you are so much more than an illness. Don't give up on yourself. Be kind be well.

Depression is like a heaviness that you can't ever escape. It crushes down on you, making even the smallest things like tying your shoes or chewing on toast seem like a twenty-mile hike uphill. Depression is a part of you; it's in your bones and your blood.

So many words to say and no way to say them.

To that one soul reading this, I know you're tired. You're fed up. You're so close to breaking. But there's strength within you, even when you are weak. Keep fighting.

None of us expected to have depression/anxiety. There was no way for most of us to prepare for it. It showed up and rocked our world. But it also showed us the tremendous strength and resilience we have in us. You will get this under control.

Depression can be extreme. Some of us have to dig deep to make it through each passing hour. If this is you - keep going. If all you can do is make it through the next hour - keep doing that. You will find peace. There is an answer.

Your only sin is that you have forgotten who you really are. You are not just a dangling fragile leaf but the entire tree.

I'll never forget how the depression and loneliness felt good and bad at the same time.

I don't know if you've ever felt like that. That you wanted to sleep for a thousand years. Or just not exist. Or just not be aware that you do exist. Or something like that. I think wanting that is very morbid, but I want it when I get like this. That's why I'm trying not to think. I just want it all to stop spinning.

Despair is the belief that tomorrow will be just like today.

A new wound makes all the old ones ache again.

Those who are silent often say more than those who speak volumes.

I'm just going through a phase right now. Everybody goes through phases and all, don't they?

Like most North Americans of his generation, Hal tends to know way less about why he feels certain ways about the objects and pursuits he's devoted to than he does about the objects and pursuits themselves.

Like many I've spent my whole life trying to source approval from the outside world to fill a hole in my heart. I've tried to fill it with money, fame and success. But whether it's $50 or $50m, or 50k twitter followers, everything I've thrown down the well has never been enough.

We can never have it all because having it all is a moving target.

The pleasure comes, the pleasure goes. Then there is a massive void, a vacuum, which one is compelled to refill with another pleasure.

Man stands in his own shadow and wonders why it's dark.

Time brought resignation and a melancholy sweeter than common joy.

There is pleasure in feeding one's melancholy...some shadow of daintiness and luxury that flatters us.

Melancholia is your mind trying to be happy again today.

Our minds are so scared to live in the moment that it revives what it knows: the good old days.

No matter how much suffering you went through, you never wanted to let go of those memories.

In order properly to be content, we need to learn, sometimes, the art of being constructively in touch with our sadder, more melancholy feelings.

And so being young and dipped in folly I fell in love with melancholy.

The melancholy facts shouldn't make us desperate, rather more forgiving, kinder, and better able to focus on what really matters, while there is still time.

Melancholy is a species of sadness that arises when we are open to the fact that life is inherently difficult and that suffering and disappointment are core parts of universal experience. It's not a disorder that needs to be cured.

You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.

Unhappy is he to whom the memories of childhood bring only fear and sadness. H.P.

The sad ones are those who waste their energy in trying to hold it back, for they can only feel bitterness in loss and no joy in gain.

Life is lost waiting for the happiest moments and only realizing you've lived them once they become memories.

The moments I most want to forget will be the lessons that stick with me forever.

Don't let the sadness from the past and fear of the future ruin the happiness of the present.

Maybe it's sad that these are now memories. And maybe it's not sad.

I am lonely, sometimes, but I dare say it's good for me.

A multitude of people and yet a solitude.

Feeling lonely is about feeling disconnected from others, from reality, but most of all, from your self. There are not shortcuts to reconnect with your self: you close your eyes, you listen for 10 minutes, and you repeat the next day.

Nearly everyone has his box of secret pain, shared with no one.

Loneliness as a situation can be corrected, but as a state of mind it is an incurable illness.

The engulfing sorrow of loneliness seems to spread endlessly and we seek constantly to escape from it with hope and faith, with amusement and distraction.

Maybe I am better off alone, no disappointments, no expectations, just alone.

The day I knew I was healed is the day I said thank you for the memories.

Hold dear to your parents for it is a scary and confusing world without them.

It always is harder to be left behind than to be the one to go.

It is sad but true that sometimes we need the tragedy to help us to see how human we are and how we are more alike than we are different.

The first pressure of sorrow crushes out from our hearts the best wine; afterwards the constant weight of it brings forth bitterness, - the taste and stain from the lees of the vat.

Death doesn't make you sad - it makes you empty. That's what's so bad about it. All of your charms and beliefs and funny habits fall fast through a big black hole, and suddenly you know they're gone because just as suddenly, there's nothing left at all inside.

It is some relief to weep; grief is satisfied and carried off by tears.

Sorrow like rain makes roses and mud.

And perhaps there is a limit to the grieving that the human heart can do. As when one adds salt to a tumbler of water, there comes a point where simply no more will be absorbed.

Joy comes to us like butterflies, but sorrow like wasps.

It is foolish to tear one's hair in grief, as though sorrow would be made less by baldness.

No one ever tells you that at some point in your life you should expect you're going to be broken, and that it will be okay.

Tears are the safety valve of the heart when too much pressure is laid on it.

As you cry in sadness, fear, or confusion, you cleanse the body and spirit of toxins.

Laughter is social. Crying is natural, very deep, unlearned, original.

Grief never ends...but it changes. It's a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith...it is the price of love.

Never be ashamed of your tears. Be proud that you are still natural. Be proud that you can express the inexpressible through your tears.

And presently I was driving through the drizzle of the dying day, with the windshield wipers in full action but unable to cope with my tears.

If you must cry, cry like a child. The first thing you learned in life was to cry. Never forget that showing your emotions is liberating.

If you've been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you - you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing was ever going to happen again.

Don't cry when the sun is gone, because the tears won't let you see the stars.

What soap is for the body, tears are for the soul.

If your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.

How sad it is that we give up on people who are just like us.

All any of us wanted, really, was to know that we counted. That someone else's life would not have been as rich without us here.

Sometimes you've got to be able to listen to yourself and be okay with no one else understanding.

It's no company at all, when people know nothing and say nothing.

I wish to use my last hours of ease and strength in telling the strange story of my experience. I have never fully unbosomed myself to any human being; I have never been encouraged to trust much in the sympathy of my fellow-men.

Having high expectations, for your life and your relationships, is the fastest road to misery.

The point is not that this world is too sad to love or too glad not to love; the point is that when you do love a thing, its gladness is a reason for loving it, and its sadness a reason for loving it more.

Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it's better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting it back together.

Embrace a philosophy of pessimism. Every human will disappoint you, and you'll do the same to them.

When your heart can cry another's sadness, then your heart is full of love.

One day, count all your blessings, and you will know how happy you are.

You have to let it all hang out, let go of the ideas that were more comfortable and embrace some of the sadness in your life.

I hold the world but as the world, Gratiano A stage where every man must play a part, And mine is a sad one.

Happiness is just happiness. Sadness is just sadness. Both emotions come and go. If we can give up our desire to only experience pleasant things, and also give up our fear of experiencing unpleasant things, we will experience a quieter, calmer mind.

Expect the unexpected: failures, sadness, illness and even death. After all, they are all part of life, right?

Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. In fact, it is always in proportion. That's its balance.

There is no joy for the one who does not bear sadness, there is no sweetness for the one who does not have patience, there is no delight for the one who does not suffer, and there is no relaxation for the one who does not endure fatigue.

Every problem has a gift for you in its hands.

What if the worst thing that happened to you turns out to be the best thing that has ever happened to you?

It is a very sad thing that nowadays there is so little useless information.

We tell our triumphs to the crowds, but our own hearts are the sole confidants of our sorrows.

Sorrows are like thunderclouds, in the distance they look black, over our heads scarcely gray.

The keenest sorrow is to recognize ourselves as the sole cause of all our adversities.

My parents' divorce left me with a lot of sadness and pain and acting, and especially humour, was my way of dealing with all that.

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.

Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.

The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.

A sad soul can kill quicker than a germ.

And I remember going to the record studio and there was a park across the street and I'd see all the children playing and I would cry because it would make me sad that I would have to work instead.

I've cried, and you'd think I'd be better for it, but the sadness just sleeps, and it stays in my spine the rest of my life.

Affliction comes to us, not to make us sad but sober not to make us sorry but wise.

Isn't it sad to go to your grave without ever wondering why you were born? Who, with such a thought, would not spring from bed, eager to resume discovering the world and rejoicing to be part of it?

Sad things happen. They do. But we don't need to live sad forever.

In this world, full often, our joys are only the tender shadows which our sorrows cast.

One must not let oneself be overwhelmed by sadness.

Can I see another's woe, and not be in sorrow too? Can I see another's grief, and not seek for kind relief?

We look before and after, And pine for what is not Our sincerest laughter With some pain is fraught Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.

There are a lot of people who consider themselves 'spiritual,' but that can mean a lot of things to a lot of people.

That's kind of sad.

The sad fact is that the same terrorist scenarios, if they occurred in five different States, there could be five different sets of responses to the American people. We need, at a minimum, a level of coordination on communicating threats to the public.

I'm convinced I got signed because of who I am. And it makes me sad.

The sad truth is that excellence makes people nervous.

Nolan has the strangest affect on people. You know, I think there's something very sad and little boy about him, but at the same time the way he goes about everything is so awkward and obnoxious.

I mean, I was just one of the ones who got exposed, and because of the position I was in, where I was in my life, it went mainstream.

It's the sad thing about entertainment, it's not always about who is the best.

The pro athlete is a sad tale. He signs a big contract and thinks he's set for life. I didn't think I was set for life, and I don't now.

I don't wanta do any Blues or any sad songs.
