"Sorrows are like thunderclouds, in the distance they look black, over our heads scarcely gray."
"When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."Jean Paul on Khalil Gibran
"Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad."Jean Paul on Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers."Jean Paul on Helen Keller
"If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had. Not the sadness, not my miscarriages or my father leaving home, but the joy of everything else. It will have been enough."Jean Paul on Audrey Hepburn
"Sadness is but a wall between two gardens."Jean Paul on Khalil Gibran
"What makes old age so sad is not that our joys but our hopes cease."
"As winter strips the leaves from around us, so that we may see the distant regions they formerly concealed, so old age takes away our enjoyments only to enlarge the prospect of the coming eternity."
"Age does not matter if the matter does not age."
"Live your life and forget your age."
"Beauty attracts us men but if, like an armed magnet it is pointed, beside, with gold and silver, it attracts with tenfold power."
