Don't feel sorry for yourself. Only assholes do that.

Norwegian Wood
Pure and complete sorrow is as impossible as pure and complete joy
Brief is sorrow, and endless is joy
Concealed sorrow bursts the heart, and rages within us as an internal fire
Old men are prone to invest the futures of young men with their own past sorrows
Genuine sorrows are very tranquil in appearance in the deep bed they have dug for themselves. But, seeming to slumber, they corrode the soul like that frightful acid which penetrates crystal
Almost all of our sorrows spring out of our relations with other people
There is no day without sorrow
Some natural sorrow, loss, or pain
That has been, and may be again.

The Solitary Reaper
A creature not too bright or good
For human nature's daily food;
For transient sorrows, simple wiles,
Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears, and smiles.

She was a Phantom of Delight

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
