You and I
By Henry Alford
My hand is lonely for your clasping, dear;
My ear is tired waiting for your call.
I want your strength to help, your laugh to cheer;
Heart, soul and senses need you, one and all.
I droop without your full, frank sympathy;
We ought to be together - you and I;
We want each other so, to comprehend
The dream, the hope, things planned, or seen, or wrought.
Companion, comforter and guide and friend,
As much as love asks love, does thought ask thought.
Life is so short, so fast the lone hours fly,
We ought to be together, you and I.
Langston Hughes Sympathy Sayings By Langston Hughes: You and I By Henry AlfordMy hand is lonely for your clasping, dear; My ear
He seemed a man whose youthful promise had yielded nothing but the feelings of failure that come with the advance of age. It is this moment in life, when the bounty of the future becomes the drudgery of the present, that all men fear, myself included, and for that reason I immediately felt a sympathy for this man.David Liss Sympathy Sayings By David Liss: He seemed a man whose youthful promise had yielded nothing but the feelings of failure
But Mary had not come into the world to be sad or to help another to be sad. Sorrowful we may often have to be, but to indulge in sorrow is either not to know or to deny God our Saviour. True, her heart ached for Letty; and the ache immediately laid itself as close to Letty's ache as it could lie; but that was only the advance-guard of her army of salvation, the light cavalry of sympathy: the next division was help; and behind that lay patience, and strength, and hope, and faith,and joy. This last, modern teachers, having failed to regard it as a virtue, may well decline to regard as a duty; but he is a poor Christian indeed in whom joy has not at least a growing share, and Mary was not a poor Christian--at least, for the time she had been learning, and as Christians go in the present aeon of their history.George MacDonald Sympathy Sayings By George MacDonald: But Mary had not come into the world to be sad or to help another
Love should be the silver thread that runs through all your conduct. Kindness, gentleness, long suffering, forbearance, patience, sympathy, a willingness to enter into childish troubles, a readiness to take part in childish joys, - these are the cords by which a child may be led most easily, - these are the clues you must follow if you would find the way to his heart.J.C. Ryle Sympathy Sayings By J.C. Ryle: Love should be the silver thread that runs through all your conduct. Kindness, gentleness, long
I could only reply that I think---I theorise--that something--something else--happens to the memory over time. For years you survive with the same loops, the same facts and the same emotions...The events reconfirm the emotions--resentment, a sense of injustice, relief--and vice versa. There seems no way of accessing anything else; the case is closed. But what if, even at a late stage, your emotions relating to those long-ago events and people change? That ugly letter of mine provoked remorse in me...I felt a new sympathy for them--and her. Then, not long afterwards, I began remembering forgotten things.Julian Barnes Sympathy Sayings By Julian Barnes: I could only reply that I think---I theorise--that something--something else--happens to the memory over time.
But of course, she remembered, that was why women were so wonderful; it was their love and imagination that transformed these unremarkable beings. For most men, when one came to think of it, were undistinguished to look at, if not positively ugly. Fabian was an exception, and perhaps love affairs with handsome men tended to be less stable because so much less sympathy and imagination were needed on the woman's part?Barbara Pym Sympathy Sayings By Barbara Pym: But of course, she remembered, that was why women were so wonderful; it was their
It is the will of God and Nature that these mortal bodies be laid aside, when the soul is to enter into real life; 'tis rather an embrio state, a preparation for living; a man is not completely born until he be dead: Why then should we grieve that a new child is born among the immortals?Benjamin Franklin Sympathy Sayings By Benjamin Franklin: It is the will of God and Nature that these mortal bodies be laid aside,
There are two ways of life, one leading to righteousness, which brings happiness, and the other to unrighteousness, which produces misery. One leads to kindness, mercy and sympathy, the other to hatred and cruelty; one to tolerance and the other to intolerance; one to justice and the other to injustice; one to truth and the other to error; one to peace and concord and the other to quarrelling and war; one to mental development and the other to mental contraction. One is the Secular way and the other is the Theological; one is the Democratic and the other the Despotic; one is the sane and the other the insane.Arthur Findlay Sympathy Sayings By Arthur Findlay: There are two ways of life, one leading to righteousness, which brings happiness, and the
Sometimes all you can do is hug a friend tightly and wish that their pain could be transferred by touch to your own emotional hard drive.Richelle E. Goodrich Sympathy Sayings By Richelle E. Goodrich: Sometimes all you can do is hug a friend tightly and wish that their pain
Sympathy one receives for nothing, envy must be earned.Robert Lembke Sympathy Sayings By Robert Lembke: Sympathy one receives for nothing, envy must be earned.
Sympathy was to respect the feelings of another. Empathy was to actually share those feelings.Stephen King Sympathy Sayings By Stephen King: Sympathy was to respect the feelings of another. Empathy was to actually share those feelings.
I have drawn from books written by learned experts and also upon my observation of living creatures in whom I have long delighted and with whom I have perhaps more sympathy than some of those who remain austerely scientific. The intuitions of a lover are not always to be trusted; but neither are those of the loveless.Joseph Wood Krutch Sympathy Sayings By Joseph Wood Krutch: I have drawn from books written by learned experts and also upon my observation of
Widen your shriveled heart, make the interests of others your own and serve them as much as you can by sympathy, kindness, presents and so forth. So long as one enjoys the things of this world and has needs and wants, it is necessary to minister to the needs of one's fellow men. Otherwise one cannot be called a human being. Whenever you have the opportunity, give to the poor, feed the hungry, nurse the sick - do service as a religious duty and you will come to know by direct perception that the person served, the one who serves and the act of service are separate only in appearance.Anandamayi Ma Sympathy Sayings By Anandamayi Ma: Widen your shriveled heart, make the interests of others your own and serve them as
The dew of compassion is a tear.Lord Byron Sympathy Sayings By Lord Byron: The dew of compassion is a tear.
Sympathy can be addictive and can kill strong men as surely as a diet of nothing but sugar.Mercedes Lackey Sympathy Sayings By Mercedes Lackey: Sympathy can be addictive and can kill strong men as surely as a diet of
As a physician I have sympathy for patients suffering from pain and other medical conditions. Although I understand many believe marijuana is the most effective drug in combating their medical ailments, I would caution against this assumption due to the lack of consistent, repeatable scientific data available to prove marijuana's benefits. Based on current evidence, I believe that marijuana is a dangerous drug and that there are less dangerous medicines offering the same relief from pain and other medical symptoms.Bill Frist Sympathy Sayings By Bill Frist: As a physician I have sympathy for patients suffering from pain and other medical conditions.
Human beings are members of a whole
In creation of one essence and soul
If one member is afflicted with pain
Other members uneasy will remain
If you have no sympathy for human pain
The name of human you cannot retain
Saadi Sympathy Sayings By Saadi: Human beings are members of a wholeIn creation of one essence and soulIf one member
It would be a poor result of all our anguish and our wrestling if we won nothing but our old selves at the end of it
if we could return to the same blind loves, the same self-confident blame, the same light thoughts of human suffering, the same frivolous gossip over blighted human lives, the same feeble sense of the Unknown towards which we have sent forth irrepressible cries in our loneliness. Let us rather be thankful that our sorrow lives in us as an indestructable force, only changing its form, as forces do, and passing from pain into sympathy
the one poor word which includes all our best insight and our best love.
George Eliot Sympathy Sayings By George Eliot: It would be a poor result of all our anguish and our wrestling if we
Do people believe in human rights because such rights actually exist, like mathematical truths, sitting on a cosmic shelf next to the Pythagorean theorem just waiting to be discovered by Platonic reasoners? Or do people feel revulsion and sympathy when they read accounts of torture, and then invent a story about universal rights to help justify their feelings?Jonathan Haidt Sympathy Sayings By Jonathan Haidt: Do people believe in human rights because such rights actually exist, like mathematical truths, sitting
Give the clergy your sympathy; don't give them anything else.Benjamin Jowett Sympathy Sayings By Benjamin Jowett: Give the clergy your sympathy; don't give them anything else.
Know, that in the course of your future life you will often find yourself elected the involuntary confidant of your acquaintances' secrets: people will instinctively find out, as I have done, that it is not your forte to tell of yourself, but to listen while others talk of themselves; they will feel, too, that you listen with no malevolent scorn of their indiscretion, but with a kind of innate sympathy; not the less comforting and encouraging because it is very unobtrusive in its manifestations." "HowCharlotte Bronte Sympathy Sayings By Charlotte Bronte: Know, that in the course of your future life you will often find yourself elected
The basis of Gandhi's nonviolence is to appeal to the good in others and evoke sympathy to one's cause through self-suffering.Arun Gandhi Sympathy Sayings By Arun Gandhi: The basis of Gandhi's nonviolence is to appeal to the good in others and evoke
When he comes to the door
he always looks mocking and half-way angry.
You can see he has sympathy for nothing.
It's written on his forehead
that he can love no one.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe Sympathy Sayings By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe: When he comes to the doorhe always looks mocking and half-way angry.You can see he
I believe order is better than chaos, creation better than destruction. I prefer gentleness to violence, forgiveness to vendetta. On the whole I think that knowledge is preferable to ignorance, and I am sure that human sympathy is more valuable than ideology. I believe that in spite of the recent triumphs of science, men haven't changed much in the last two thousand years; and in consequence we must try to learn from history.Kenneth Clark Sympathy Sayings By Kenneth Clark: I believe order is better than chaos, creation better than destruction. I prefer gentleness to
Ours is an age where ethics has become obsolete. It is superseded by science, deleted by philosophy and dismissed as emotive by psychology. It is drowned in compassion, evaporates into aesthetics and retreats before relativism. The usual moral distinctions between good and bad are simply drowned in a maudlin emotion in which we feel more sympathy for the murderer than for the murdered, for the adulterer than for the betrayed, and in which we have actually begun to believe that the real guilty party, the one who somehow caused it all, is the victim, and not the perpetrator of the crime.Robert Fitch Sympathy Sayings By Robert Fitch: Ours is an age where ethics has become obsolete. It is superseded by science, deleted
Having love means not losing the light.And what love!Love entirely pure.Blindness does not exist where there is certainty.The soul gropes for another soul-and finds it.And this soul found and tried and tested is a woman.A hand supports you,it is hers;lips brush your forehead,hers;you hear breathing right next to you,it is her breathing.To have all of her,from her devotion to her sympathy,never to be abandoned,to have that sweet frailty that succours you,to lean on such an unshakable reed,to touch Providence with your own hands and hold it in your arms.Victor Hugo Sympathy Sayings By Victor Hugo: Having love means not losing the light.And what love!Love entirely pure.Blindness does not exist where
No man can force the harp of his own individuality into the people's heart; but every man may play upon the chords of the people's heart, who draws his inspiration from the people's instinct.Lajos Kossuth Sympathy Sayings By Lajos Kossuth: No man can force the harp of his own individuality into the people's heart; but
Coolidge expressed his "sympathy with the deep and intense longing which finds such fine expression in the Jewish National Homeland in Palestine."Calvin Coolidge Sympathy Sayings By Calvin Coolidge: Coolidge expressed his "sympathy with the deep and intense longing which finds such fine expression
I am the son of a small and far-away nation and the other laureates have all come from different countries from all over the world and we all were equally received here with signs of sympathy.Albert Szent-Gyorgyi Sympathy Sayings By Albert Szent-Gyorgyi: I am the son of a small and far-away nation and the other laureates have
AI don't make a big thing out of my race. If you try to preach, people give you a little sympathy and then they want to get out of the way. So you don't preach; you tell the story.Jim Brown Sympathy Sayings By Jim Brown: AI don't make a big thing out of my race. If you try to preach,
One of the sweet things about pain and sorrow is that they show us how well we are loved, how much kindness there is in the world, and how easily we can make others happy in the same way when they need help and sympathy.Louisa May Alcott Sympathy Sayings By Louisa May Alcott: One of the sweet things about pain and sorrow is that they show us how
( ... ) after an early dinner at The Egg and We, a recently inaugurated and not very successful little restaurant which Pnin frequented from sheer sympathy with failure ( ... )Vladimir Nabokov Sympathy Sayings By Vladimir Nabokov: ( ... ) after an early dinner at The Egg and We, a recently inaugurated
So I sent Halt to straighten matters out. Thought it might be a good idea to give him something to keep him busy."
So what's Digby got to complain about?" Rodney asked. It was obvious from his tone that he felt no sympathy for the recalcitrant commander of Barga Hold.
The Baron gestured for Lady Pauline to explain.
Apparently," she said,"Halt threw him into the moat.
John Flanagan Sympathy Sayings By John Flanagan: So I sent Halt to straighten matters out. Thought it might be a good idea
Accepting and feeling sympathy and love is not so healing as giving it.Ruth Draper Sympathy Sayings By Ruth Draper: Accepting and feeling sympathy and love is not so healing as giving it.
Too many people make the past their identity and spend the rest of their lives accumulating sympathy for their past pain.Laura Schlessinger Sympathy Sayings By Laura Schlessinger: Too many people make the past their identity and spend the rest of their lives
Digital age of business and world shall move up from apathy, to sympathy, to empathy.Pearl Zhu Sympathy Sayings By Pearl Zhu: Digital age of business and world shall move up from apathy, to sympathy, to empathy.
I'm going to Bristol," Matthew said desperately. "I'll reschedule the meetings. I won't do anything without your leave. But at least I can gather information - interview the local transport firm, have a look at their horses - "
"Swift," the earl interrupted. Something in his quiet tone, a note of ... kindness? ... sympathy? ... caused Matthew to stiffen defensively. "I understand the reason for your urgency - "
"No, you don't."
"I understand more than you might think. And in my experience, these problems can't be solved by avoidance. You can never run far or fast enough."
Matthew froze, staring at Westcliff. The earl could have been referring either to Daisy, or to Matthew's tarnished past. In either case he was probably right.
Not that it changed anything.
"Sometimes running is the only choice," Matthew replied gruffly, and left the room without looking back.
Lisa Kleypas Sympathy Sayings By Lisa Kleypas: I'm going to Bristol," Matthew said desperately. "I'll reschedule the meetings. I won't do anything
When a writer receives praise or blame, when he arouses sympathy or is ridiculed, when he is loved or rejected, it is not on the strength of his thoughts and dreams as a whole, but only of that infinitesimal part which has been able to make its way through the narrow channel of language and the equally narrow channel of the reader's understanding.Hermann Hesse Sympathy Sayings By Hermann Hesse: When a writer receives praise or blame, when he arouses sympathy or is ridiculed, when
We owe to man higher succors than food and fire. We owe to man, man.Ralph Waldo Emerson Sympathy Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: We owe to man higher succors than food and fire. We owe to man, man.

He watched and wept and prayed and felt for allOliver Goldsmith Sympathy Sayings By Oliver Goldsmith: He watched and wept and prayed and felt for all
I am certainly open to the idea that this might be used to explain other philosophical categories besides knowledge. I have some real sympathy with the work of those moral realists who have tried to give naturalistic accounts of human flourishing, and who offer accounts of right action in such terms. (I suppose this is more evidence that I really do have deep affinities with Aristotle!)Hilary Kornblith Sympathy Sayings By Hilary Kornblith: I am certainly open to the idea that this might be used to explain other
The man who tries to be funny is lost. To lose one's naturalness is always to lose the sympathy of your audience.Harold Lloyd Sympathy Sayings By Harold Lloyd: The man who tries to be funny is lost. To lose one's naturalness is always
I see shining fish struggling within tight nets, while I hear orioles singing carefree tunes. Even trivial creatures know the difference between freedom and bondage. Sympathy and compassion should be but natural to the human heart.Du Fu Sympathy Sayings By Du Fu: I see shining fish struggling within tight nets, while I hear orioles singing carefree tunes.
She, who had never liked weddings, had allowed herself this fantasy. Her wedding day to Rory. A pretty church in Sussex, festooned with spring flowers. Rows of relatives, and her, Elle, floating down the aisle in cream silk to 'The arrival of queen Sheba', with eyes only for him ... Rory, slightly rumpled, slightly scared, her love, her only one.
But that wasn't how it had turned out. She knew she was OK, watching him, in fact she was happy for him, happy for Libby. But she couldn't help but feel a pang of sympathy for the girl she'd been, who'd loved him so much. She was still dreaming somewhere, hoping this day would come.
Harriet Evans Sympathy Sayings By Harriet Evans: She, who had never liked weddings, had allowed herself this fantasy. Her wedding day to
There is hardly any contact more depressing to a young ardent creature than that of a mind in which years full of knowledge seem to have issued in a blank absence of interest or sympathy.George Eliot Sympathy Sayings By George Eliot: There is hardly any contact more depressing to a young ardent creature than that of
Imagine saying to someone, "I have a kidney problem, and I'm having a lot of bad days lately." Nothing but sympathy, right? "What's wrong?" "My mom had that!" "Text me a pic of the ultrasound!" Then pretend to say, "I have severe depression and anxiety, and I'm having a lot of bad days lately." They just look at you like you're broken, right? Unfixable. Inherently flawed. Maybe not someone they want to hang around as much? Yeah, society sucks. My mental problems made me feel ashamed. I felt like I had to hide them until I could "work through it" on my own. Which I never did, because I didn't know how. And I didn't feel brave enough to make fixing my mind a priority because I didn't think anyone would understand.Felicia Day Sympathy Sayings By Felicia Day: Imagine saying to someone, "I have a kidney problem, and I'm having a lot of
Or was he merely a mollycoddled favorite, enjoying capriciously prejudiced love? Schenback was inclined to believe the latter. Inborn in nearly every artist's nature is a voluptuous, treacherous tendency to accept the injustice if it creates beauty and to grant sympathy and homage to aristocratic preferences.Thomas Mann Sympathy Sayings By Thomas Mann: Or was he merely a mollycoddled favorite, enjoying capriciously prejudiced love? Schenback was inclined to
This woman, moved by some private sorrow as much as the words being spoken, cried almost silently, unobserved by others, apart from Mma Ramotswe, who stretched out her hand and laid it on her shoulder. Do not cry, Mma, she began to whisper, but changed her words even as she uttered them, and said quietly, Yes, you can cry, Mma. We should not tell people not to weep - we do it because of our sympathy for them - but we should really tell them that their tears are justified and entirely right.Alexander McCall Smith Sympathy Sayings By Alexander McCall Smith: This woman, moved by some private sorrow as much as the words being spoken, cried
In any business, the more you learn, the more sympathetic you can be to other people's positions.Peter Asher Sympathy Sayings By Peter Asher: In any business, the more you learn, the more sympathetic you can be to other
What a position of transcendent horror must that be, where the perpetrator of a great crime, till then a stranger to positive guilt, finds himself suddenly cut off, and forever, from all human sympathy, isolated from hope, the tenant of a solitary cell, and with a wide, impassable gulf yawning between him and that great brotherhood of which he has ceased to be a part
no longer regarded as a man, but as a monster in the shape of one, from whom Mercy herself turns away, and for whom Pity even has no tears!
Christian Nestell Bovee Sympathy Sayings By Christian Nestell Bovee: What a position of transcendent horror must that be, where the perpetrator of a great
Trials make room for consolation. There is nothing that makes man have a big heart like a great trial. I have found that those people who have no sympathy for their fellows, who never weep for the sorrows of others very seldom have any of their own. Great hearts could be made only by great troubles.Charles Spurgeon Sympathy Sayings By Charles Spurgeon: Trials make room for consolation. There is nothing that makes man have a big heart
There are times you find yourself standing by the wayside, watching as someone struggles to dig a well with a spoon, and you wish with all your heart you had arms and a shovel.Richelle E. Goodrich Sympathy Sayings By Richelle E. Goodrich: There are times you find yourself standing by the wayside, watching as someone struggles to
If every day a man takes orders in silence from an incompetent superior, if every day he solemnly performs ritual acts which he privately finds ridiculous, if he unhesitatingly gives answers to questionnaires which are contrary to his real opinions and is prepared to deny his own self in public, if he sees no difficulty in feigning sympathy or even affection where, in fact, he feels only indifference or aversion, it still does not mean that he has entirely lost the use of one of the basic human senses, namely, the sense of humiliation.Vaclav Havel Sympathy Sayings By Vaclav Havel: If every day a man takes orders in silence from an incompetent superior, if every
The story she then told was as all attempts at sympathy are: an effort to match in form and size and detail what another has known: to hold one experience next to another the way lovers and children match fingers and hands, as if these two, side by side, are linked by their likeness, are both identical and unique.Alice McDermott Sympathy Sayings By Alice McDermott: The story she then told was as all attempts at sympathy are: an effort to
The greatest glory of a building is not in its stones, nor in its gold. Its glory is in its Age, and in that deep sense of voicefulness, of stern watching, of mysterious sympathy ... which we feel in walls that have long been washed by the passing waves of humanity.John Ruskin Sympathy Sayings By John Ruskin: The greatest glory of a building is not in its stones, nor in its gold.
The force of truth that a statement imparts, then, its prominence among the hordes of recorded observations that I may optionally apply to my own life, depends, in addition to the sense that it is argumentatively defensible, on the sense that someone like me, and someone I like, whose voice is audible and who is at least notionally in the same room with me, does or can possibly hold it to be compellingly true.Nicholson Baker Sympathy Sayings By Nicholson Baker: The force of truth that a statement imparts, then, its prominence among the hordes of
Queen Paola and I will never forget the ties that have grown between the people and us during the course of the years. Thank you for your confidence, tokens of sympathy and support, sometimes even with a little criticism. We always loved you.King Albert II Sympathy Sayings By King Albert II: Queen Paola and I will never forget the ties that have grown between the people
The architect who combines in his being the powers of vision, of imagination, of intellect, of sympathy with human need and the power to interpret them in a language vernacular and time
is he who shall create poems in stone.
Louis Sullivan Sympathy Sayings By Louis Sullivan: The architect who combines in his being the powers of vision, of imagination, of intellect,
Laughter is, above all, a corrective. Being intended to humiliate, it must make a painful impression on the person against whom it is directed. By laughter, society avenges itself for the liberties taken with it. It would fail in its object if it bore the stamp of sympathy or kindness.Henri Bergson Sympathy Sayings By Henri Bergson: Laughter is, above all, a corrective. Being intended to humiliate, it must make a painful
A trial relied heavily on oaths, but both sides would bring as many liars as they could muster, and judgment usually went to the better liars or, if both sides were equally convincing, to the side who had the sympathy of the onlookers.Bernard Cornwell Sympathy Sayings By Bernard Cornwell: A trial relied heavily on oaths, but both sides would bring as many liars as
To me, the most autobiographical line was: 'My make-up may be flaking but my smile still stays on.' That was true. No matter how ill Freddie felt, he never grumbled to anyone or sought sympathy of any kind. It was his battle, no one else's, and he always wore a brave face against the ever-increasing odds against him.Jim Hutton Sympathy Sayings By Jim Hutton: To me, the most autobiographical line was: 'My make-up may be flaking but my smile
There was an extravagant winter storm outside. The tinfoil sky flashed beyond the window, rattling in the frame, and once or twice a white fork like a vein. Through the opposite window, which looked out onto the other side of the house, the light was pale, picking out where the wall was still broken from the last big storm, with the scorched telegraph pole and the burnt tree.Olivia Sudjic Sympathy Sayings By Olivia Sudjic: There was an extravagant winter storm outside. The tinfoil sky flashed beyond the window, rattling
Men are pigs, darling. I really have every sympathy for women that they actually have to choose one of these arrogant, stupid morons to settle down with and marry.Michael Winner Sympathy Sayings By Michael Winner: Men are pigs, darling. I really have every sympathy for women that they actually have
The city is tricky. The highs are so much higher, but in the lows you drop straight down again to bedrock. It helps that streets are snapped to a grid. There are also psychic boutiques and sidewalk prophets, but until you contrive your own love story set in that city, even one as warped as mine, you remain outside it, looking for signals in the white smoke that rises from under, in the sudden hot laundry smells and the LED typos of street vendors donuteasily becomes dount, ominously like don't, to my mind. There was a DOUNT sign on Second Avenue which more than once redirected my superstitious footsteps.Olivia Sudjic Sympathy Sayings By Olivia Sudjic: The city is tricky. The highs are so much higher, but in the lows you
When I think of it as happening to somebody else, it seems that the idea of me soaked to the skin, surrounded by countless driving streaks of silver, and moving through when I completely forget my material existence, and view myself from a purely objective standpoint, can I, as a figure in a painting, blend into the beautiful harmony of my natural surroundings. The moment, however, I feel annoyed because of the rain, or miserable because my legs are weary because of the rain, or miserable because my legs are weary with walking, then I have already ceased to be a character in a poem, or a figure in a painting, and I revert to the uncomprehending, insensitive man in the street I was before. I am then even blind to the elegance of the fleeting clouds; unable even to feel any bond of sympathy with a falling petal or the cry of a bird, much less appreciate the great beauty in the image of myself, completely alone, walking through the mountains in spring.Soseki Natsume Sympathy Sayings By Soseki Natsume: When I think of it as happening to somebody else, it seems that the idea
There's a certain amount of sympathy here for the Bush administration's problem, which is they would like to get rid of Saddam Hussein and they would like to have the Kurds autonomous.Les Aspin Sympathy Sayings By Les Aspin: There's a certain amount of sympathy here for the Bush administration's problem, which is they
As I lay, a pink, dreamlike glow seeped into the room, gradually turning a bright, chemical red. The light inched towards the bed, slowly picking out our two bodies - developing us, I thought, the way photographs used to be made - until it was daylight and everything had its normal definition.Olivia Sudjic Sympathy Sayings By Olivia Sudjic: As I lay, a pink, dreamlike glow seeped into the room, gradually turning a bright,
Youth is a marvelous garment. How misplaced is the sympathy lavished on adolescents. There is a yet more difficult age which comes later, when one has less to hope for and less ability to change, when one has cast the die and has to settle into a chosen life without the consolations of habit or the wisdom of maturity, when, as in her own case, one ceases to be une jeune fille un peu folle, and becomes merely a woman, worst of all, a wife. The very young have their troubles, but they have at least a part to play, the part of being very young.Iris Murdoch Sympathy Sayings By Iris Murdoch: Youth is a marvelous garment. How misplaced is the sympathy lavished on adolescents. There is
Service is the virtue that distinguished the great of all times and which they will be remembered by. It places a mark if nobility upon its disciples. It is the dividing line which separates the two great groups of the world - those who help and those who hinder, those who lift and those who lean, those who contribute and those who only consume. How much better it is to give than to receive. Service in any form is comely and beautiful. To give encouragement, to impart sympathy, to show interest, to banish fear, to build self confidence and awaken hope in the hearts if others, in short - to love them and to show it - is to render the most precious service.Bryant S. Hinckley Sympathy Sayings By Bryant S. Hinckley: Service is the virtue that distinguished the great of all times and which they will
Brian Turner writes as only a soldier can, of terror and compassion, hurt and horror, sympathy and desire. He takes us into the truth and trauma of the Iraq war in language that is precise, delicate and beautiful, even as it tells of a suicide bomber, a skull shattered by a bullet, a blade in a bloodgroove.Andrew Himes Sympathy Sayings By Andrew Himes: Brian Turner writes as only a soldier can, of terror and compassion, hurt and horror,
Waking in the morning, I had to remember grief all over again. It was sunny, a white winter sun, and that made me sad.Olivia Sudjic Sympathy Sayings By Olivia Sudjic: Waking in the morning, I had to remember grief all over again. It was sunny,
I cannot love evergreens - they are the misanthropes of nature. To them the spring brings no promise, the autumn no decline; they are cut off from the sweetest of all ties with their kind - sympathy ... I will have no evergreens in my garden; when the inevitable winter comes, every beloved plant and favorite tree shall drop together - no solitary fir left to triumph over the companionship of decay.Letitia Elizabeth Landon Sympathy Sayings By Letitia Elizabeth Landon: I cannot love evergreens - they are the misanthropes of nature. To them the spring
Wisdom must go with Sympathy, else the emotions will become maudlin and pity may be wasted on a poodle instead of a child-on a field-mouse instead of a human soul.Elbert Hubbard Sympathy Sayings By Elbert Hubbard: Wisdom must go with Sympathy, else the emotions will become maudlin and pity may be
From watching Silvia, I'd learned that one of the worst things about being ill is that most people find your suffering opaque. With this sadness it was different. I felt that I needed to nurture and protect it from people's understanding. I wanted Susy's sympathy because I wanted comfort and to feel less alone, and yet I also didn't want it - I didn't want my personal grief to be part of something universal right then.Olivia Sudjic Sympathy Sayings By Olivia Sudjic: From watching Silvia, I'd learned that one of the worst things about being ill is
The highest genius never flowers in satire, but culminates in sympathy with that which is best in human nature, and appeals to it.Edwin Hubbel Chapin Sympathy Sayings By Edwin Hubbel Chapin: The highest genius never flowers in satire, but culminates in sympathy with that which is
Of your friend, I can find no trace," said the man. "He seems to have been eaten by one of the thin hairless apes from the Okanti isles; all it does is screech at me. What became of the last leech to take a look at him?" "We left him in Talisham," said Jean. "I'm afraid my friend's attitude moved him to bring an early end to his own sea voyage." "Well, I might have done the same. I waive my fee, in profound sympathy. Keep your silver - you shall need it for wine. Or poison.Scott Lynch Sympathy Sayings By Scott Lynch: Of your friend, I can find no trace," said the man. "He seems to have

Corruption and envy and lust for power. Cruelty and coldness. A vicious probing curiousity. Pure, poisonous, toxic malice. You have never from your earliest years shown a shred of compassion for sympathy or kindness without calculating how it would return to your advantage. You have tortured and killed without regret or hesitation; you have betrayed and intrigued and gloried in your treachery. You are a cess-pit of moral filth.Philip Pullman Sympathy Sayings By Philip Pullman: Corruption and envy and lust for power. Cruelty and coldness. A vicious probing curiousity. Pure,

One of the most terrible things about the English education System in Ireland is its ruthlessness ... it is cold and mechanical, like the ruthlessness of an immensely powerful engine. A machine vast, complicated ... It grinds night and day; it obeys immutable and predetermined laws; it is as devoid of understanding, of sympathy, of imagination, as is any other piece of machinery that performs an appointed task. Into it is fed all raw human material in Ireland; it seizes upon it inexorably and rends and compresses and remoulds ...Patrick Pearse Sympathy Sayings By Patrick Pearse: One of the most terrible things about the English education System in Ireland is its
All people of broad, strong sense have an instinctive repugnance to the men of maxims; because such people early discern that the mysterious complexity of our life is not to be embraced by maxims, and that to lace ourselves up in formulas of that sort is to repress all the divine promptings and inspirations that spring from growing insight and sympathy.

And yet how treacherous, I thought, after such neutrality, bordering on indifference, and occaisonally open hostility, when the whole city finally seemed alive and tremulous to my touch, a seething structure reaching out to meet me and accommodate my every move, as if I had been expected and was welcome there, that she was the only thing in it that would not respond.Olivia Sudjic Sympathy Sayings By Olivia Sudjic: And yet how treacherous, I thought, after such neutrality, bordering on indifference, and occaisonally open

Nick leans down and kisses my eyelids. "Loving you, Zara, is a full-time job. It's a great job, don't get me wrong. It's the best job in the universe. But it is not easy, because you tend to . . ."
"Get hurt?" Betty suggests. "Find trouble? Pass out? Break arms?"
"All of the above." Nick laughs.
My hand finds Nick's wrist and I grab onto its thickness. "You know, I'm the patient here. Where's the bedside manner? Where's the sympathy?"
"Zara, sympathy is just a good excuse to buy greeting cards and make sorry eyes and secretly gloat over how glad you are that you aren't the person whose crap is hanging out there for the world to see," Betty says.
