A marriage is no amusement but a solemn act, and generally a sad one.
But probably my favorite music, believe it or not, is sad music.
Sad is Eros, builder of cities, And weeping anarchic Aphrodite.
W. H. Auden
Affliction comes to us, not to make us sad but sober; not to make us sorry but wise.
H. G. Wells
The songwriting style, to me, is superior... there was a certain amount of joy in it, no matter how sad the song is. You get joy in listening to these Buddy Holly or Roy Orbison sad lyrics. I'm attracted to songs that have balance between the darks and the lights and giving them all equal opportunity.
Being on your own would be sad, sick and weird. I don't trust myself. I need that balance.
My dad would pick me up every other Friday at 6 o'clock and drop me off every Sunday at 6 o'clock, and I remember those last couple hours, like around 4 o'clock, my dad would get kind of sad because he knew that he was about to not see me for two more weeks.
Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired. My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.
And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtainThrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before.
Edgar Allan Poe
When I need to cry, I think of very sad things, mostly about animals.
I'm so glad I spent 10 years being sad and lonely.
If we see a sad rain, it doesn't mean the rain is sad, but it means we see it. That's an easily dismissible kind of projection. But what I'm struggling to say, is that we take that rain in through our own hearts and emotions and senses and skin, and all those filters have an impact.
