Number of Quotes: 4

For the love of money is
the root of all evil: which while
some coveted after, they have
erred from the faith, and
pierced themselves through
with many sorrows.

1 Timothy 6:10, King James Version
Holy Bible
A propensity to hope and joy is real riches; one to fear and sorrow real poverty.
David Hume

The sorrow for the dead is the only sorrow from which we refuse to be divorced. Every other wound we seek to heal - every other affliction to forget; but this wound we consider it a duty to keep open - this affliction we cherish and brood over in solitude.
Washington Irving

I will instruct my sorrows to be proud;
for grief is proud and makes his owner stoop.
To me and to the state of my great grief
let kings assemble; for my grief's so great
that no supporter but the huge firm earth
Can hold it up:

King John
William Shakespeare
