Sorrow is brief but joy is endless

We are now about to take our leave and kind farewell to our native land, the country the Great Spirit gave our Fathers, we are on the eve of leaving that country that gave us birth, it is with sorrow we are forced by the white man to quit the scenes of our childhood... we bid farewell to it and all we hold dear.

Charles Hicks

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, but only saps today of its strength

A. J. Cronin

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.

Leo Buscaglia

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy

Leo F. Buscaglia

With every rising of the sun, Think of your life as just begun. The past has shrived and buried deep All yesterdays; there let them sleep. Concern yourself with but today, Woo it, and teach it to obey Your will and wish. Since time began Today has been the friend of man; But in his blindness and his sorrow, He looks to yesterday and tomorrow. You, and today! a soul sublime, And the great pregnant hour of time, With God himself to bind the twain! Go forth, I say-attain, attain! With God himself to bind the twain!

Ella Wilcox

When there is plenty of wine, sorrow and worry take wing.

Ovid

Since water still flows, though we cut it with swords And sorrow returns, though we drown it with a wine, Since the world can in no way answer to our craving, I will loosen my hair tomorrow and take to a fishing boat.

Li Po

Those who eat too much or eat too little, who sleep too much or sleep too little, will not succeed in meditation. But those who are temperate in eating and sleeping, work and recreation, will come to the end of sorrow through meditation.
