„Life is a comedy to those who think and a tragedy for those who feel.“

—  Horace Walpole English art historian, man of letters, antiquarian and Whig politician 1717 - 1797
Letter to Anne, Countess of Ossory, (16 August 1776) A favourite saying of Walpole's, it is repeated in other of his letters, and might be derived from a similar statement attributed to Jean de La Bruyère, though unsourced: "Life is a tragedy for those who feel, and a comedy for those who think". An earlier form occurs in another published letter: I have often said, and oftener think, that this world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those that feel — a solution of why Democritus laughed and Heraclitus wept. Letter to Sir Horace Mann (31 December 1769)

„Life is a tragedy for those who feel, and a comedy for those who think.“

—  Jean de La Bruyère 17th-century French writer and philosopher 1645 - 1696
La vie est une tragédie pour celui qui sent, et une comédie pour celui qui pense. As quoted in Selected Thoughts from the French: XV Century-XX Century, with English Translations (1913), pp. 132-133, by James Raymond Solly. This may conceivably be a misattribution, because as yet no definite citation of a specific work by La Bruyère has been located, and the statement is very similar to one known to have been made by Horace Walpole in a letter of 31 December 1769: The world is a comedy to those that think; a tragedy to those that feel.

„Far more real than the ticking of time is the way we open up the minutes and invest them with meaning. Death is not the ultimate tragedy in life. The ultimate tragedy is to die without discovering the possibilities of full growth.“

—  Norman Cousins American journalist 1915 - 1990
Context: Hope, faith, love and a strong will to live offer no promise of immortality, only proof of our uniqueness ans human beings and the opportunity to experience full growth even under the grimmest circumstances. Far more real than the ticking of time is the way we open up the minutes and invest them with meaning. Death is not the ultimate tragedy in life. The ultimate tragedy is to die without discovering the possibilities of full growth. Quoted in Good Housekeeping (November 1989), p. 92.
