Tears Quotes

Tears and fears and feeling proud to say 'I love you' right out loud

Joni Mitchell

When the boys come into my yard for leave to gather horse-chestnuts, I own I enter into nature's game, and affect to grant the permission reluctantly, fearing that any moment they will find out the imposture of that showy chaff. But this tenderness is quite unnecessary; the enchantments are laid on very thick. Their young life is thatched with them. Bare and grim to tears is the lot of the children in the hovel I saw yesterday; yet not the less they hang it round with frippery romance, like the children of the happiest fortune.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get to where we are today, but we have just begun. Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today.

Barack Obama

The cure for anything is salt water -- sweat, tears, or the sea

Isak Dinesen

There's some people who do things so bad it tears the fabric of the world, and then there's some people so sweet and good that they can feel it when the world gets torn. They see things, they know things, only they're so good and pure that they don't understand what it is that they're seeing.

Orson Scott Card

I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.

Winston Churchill

I am the only being whose doom No tongue would ask no eye would mourn I never caused a thought of gloom A smile of joy since I was born In secret pleasure secret tears This changeful life has slipped away As friendless after eighteen years As lone as on my natal day

Emily Jane Bront

Under the dominion of the priests our earth became the ascetic planet; a squalid den careering through space, peopled by discontented and arrogant creatures, who were disgusted with life, abhorred their globe as a vale of tears, and who in their envy and hatred of beauty and joy did themselves as much harm as possible.

Georg Morris Cohen Brandes

To have even known such a man as he was is an inestimable boon. To have been with him for so long as a child, to have known so intimately the man who above all others has understood childhood, is indeed a memory on which to look back with thanksgiving and with tears.

Isa Bowman

I remember tears streaming down your face, When I said I'd never let you go

Taylor Swift

Tears are the silent language of grief.


We need never be ashamed of our tears.

Charles Dickens

If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars

Rabindranath Tagore

"Worse than idle is compassion if it ends in tears and sighs."

William Wordsworth

Past mistakes cannot create a present pain; no mistake in life has the power to make us ache any more than the echo of someone crying can shed tears.
