Quote Left What though the radiance which was once so bright Be not forever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; Grief not, rather find, Strength in what remains behind, In the primal sympathy Which having been must ever be, In the soothing thoughts that spring Out of Human suffering, In the faith that looks through death In years that bring philophic mind. Quote Right

Quote Left The realization of our soul has its moral and its spiritual side. The moral side represents training of unselfishness, control of desire; the spiritual side represents sympathy and love. They should be taken together and never separated. The cultivation of the merely moral side of our nature leads us to the dark region of narrowness and hardness of heart, to the intolerant arrogance of goodness; and the cultivation of the merely spiritual side of our nature leads us to a still darker region of revelry in intemperance of imagination. Quote Right
Quote Left Pity may represent little more than the impersonal concern which prompts the mailing of a check, but true sympathy is the personal concern which demands the giving of one's soul. Quote Right
Quote Left Autumn wins you best by this its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay. Quote Right
Quote Left And whoever walks a furlong without sympathy walks to his own funeral drest in his shroud. Quote Right
Quote Left The perception of the comic is a tie of sympathy with other men, a pledge of sanity, and a protection from those perverse tendencies and gloomy insanities in which fine intellects sometimes lose themselves. A rogue alive to the ludicrous is still convertible. If that sense is lost, his fellow-men can do little for him. Quote Right
Quote Left We feel at first as if some opportunities of kindness and sympathy were lost, but learn afterward that any pure grief is ample recompense for all. That is, if we are faithful; -- for a spent grief is but sympathy with the soul that disposes events, and is as natural as the resin of Arabian trees. -- Only nature has a right to grieve perpetually, for she only is innocent. Soon the ice will melt, and the blackbirds sing along the river which he frequented, as pleasantly as ever. The same everlasting serenity will appear in this face of God, and we will not be sorrowful, if he is not. Quote Right
Quote Left I believe that what so saddens the reformer is not his sympathy with his fellows in distress, but, though he be the holiest son of God, is his private ail. Let this be righted, let the spring come to him, the morning rise over his couch, and he will forsake his generous companions without apology. Quote Right
Quote Left Sympathy constitutes friendship; but in love there is a sort of antipathy, or opposing passion. Each strives to be the other, and both together make up one whole. Quote Right

Quote Left What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be not forever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
Grief not, rather find,
Strength in what remains behind,
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be,
In the soothing thoughts that spring
Out of Human suffering,
In the faith that looks through death
In years that bring philophic mind.

Quote Left Any relations in a social order will endure, if there is infused into them some of that spirit of human sympathy which qualifies life for immortality. Quote Right
Quote Left When I think of this life I have led; the desolation of solitude it has been; the masoned, walled-town of a Captain's exclusiveness, which admits but small entrance to any sympathy from the green country without -- oh, weariness! heaviness! Guinea-coast slavery of solitary command! Quote Right
Quote Left We do not learn by inference and deduction and the application of mathematics to philosophy, but by direct intercourse and sympathy. Quote Right
Quote Left There are confessable agonies, sufferings of which one can positively be proud. Of bereavement, of parting, of the sense of sin and the fear of death the poets have eloquently spoken. They command the world's sympathy. But there are also discreditable anguishes, no less excruciating than the others, but of which the sufferer dare not, cannot speak. The anguish of thwarted desire, for example. Quote Right
Quote Left Measure your health by your sympathy with morning and spring. If there is no response in you to the awakening of nature --if the prospect of an early morning walk does not banish sleep, if the warble of the first bluebird does not thrill you --know that the morning and spring of your life are past. Thus may you feel your pulse. Quote Right
Quote Left No man needs sympathy because he has to work. Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing. Quote Right
Quote Left The community stagnates without the impulse of the individual. The impulse dies away without the sympathy of the community. Quote Right
Quote Left Marriage must be a relation either of sympathy or of conquest. Quote Right
Quote Left The secret of language is the secret of sympathy and its full charm is possible only to the gentle. Quote Right
Quote Left The modern sympathy with invalids is morbid. Illness of any kind is hardly a thing to be encouraged in others. Quote Right
Quote Left There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. Quote Right
Quote Left There should be a sympathy with freedom, a desire to give it scope, founded not upon visionary ideas, but upon the long experience of many gen... Quote Right
Quote Left Strengthen me by sympathizing with my strength, not my weakness. Quote Right
Quote Left A villain must be a thing of power, handled with delicacy and grace. He must be wicked enough to excite our aversion, strong enough to arouse our fear, human enough to awaken some transient gleam of sympathy. We must triumph in his downfall, yet not barbarously nor with contempt, and the close of his career must be in harmony with all its previous development. Quote Right
Quote Left Seldom in the business and transactions of ordinary life, do we find the sympathy we want. Quote Right
Quote Left If there was less sympathy in the world, there would be less trouble in the world. Quote Right
Quote Left It is the story-teller's task to elicit sympathy and a measure of understanding for those who lie outside the boundaries of State approval. Quote Right
