Kahlil Gibran

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

For some moments in life there are no words.

David Seltzer

His morality is all sympathy, just what morality should be

Oscar Wilde

Sympathy is something that shouldn't be bestowed upon the Yankees. Apparently it angers them.

Bob Feller

To be in one's own heart in kindly sympathy with all things; this is the nature of righteousness


Sympathy is two hearts tugging at one load.

Charles Henry Parkhurst

He is interested in the feelings of the squash ball, and of the champagne bottle that launches the ship. In a football match his sympathy is not with either of the teams but with the ball, or, in a match ending nil-nil, with the hunger of the goalmouth.

One has never known a good man to whom dogs were not dear; but many of the best women have no such fondness. You will find that the woman who is really kind to dogs is always one who has failed to inspire sympathy in men.

Sir Henry Maximilian Beerbohm

Allan David Bloom
