Those who weep recover more quickly than those who smile.
To laugh is to risk appearing a fool,To weep is to risk appearing sentimentalTo reach out to another is to risk involvement,To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true selfTo place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their lossTo love is to risk not being loved in return,To hope is to risk despair,To try is to risk to failure.But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing is nothing.He may avoid suffering and sorrow,But he cannot learn, feel, change, grow or live.Chained by his servitude he is a slave who has forfeited all freedom.Only a person who risks is free.
One weeps not save when one is afraid, and that is why kings are tyrants.
Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps, for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are and what they ought to be.
The weeping of an heir is laughter in disguise.
A rich widow weeps with one eye and signals with the other.
The tears of the world are a constant quality.
For each one who begins to weep, somewhere else another stops. The same is true of the laugh.
Man weeps to think that he will die so soon; woman, that she was born so long ago.
Laugh and the world laughs with you, Weep, and you weep alone;
For this brave old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own.
