"I am sure that the sad days and happenings were rare, and that I lived the joyous and careless life of other children but just because the happy days were so habitual to me they made no impression upon my mind, and I can no longer recall them."
"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."Pierre Loti 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."Pierre Loti 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."Pierre Loti 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."Pierre Loti on Audrey Hepburn
"Sadness is but a wall between two gardens."Pierre Loti on Khalil Gibran
