"I'm sad and blue, about nobody but you. I told you that I loved you right from the start, you told me the same and now you try to break my little heart."
"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."Leon Redbone 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."Leon Redbone on Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"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."Leon Redbone on Audrey Hepburn
"Sadness is but a wall between two gardens."Leon Redbone on Khalil Gibran
"Lonesome. Lonesome. I know what it means. Here all by my lonesome, dreaming empty dreams. Weary. Weary at the close of day, wondering if tomorrow brings me joy or sorrow."
