„In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all; and, to the young, it comes with bitterest agony, because it takes them unawares.“

—  Abraham Lincoln 16th President of the United States 1809 - 1865

Letter to Fanny McCullough (23 December 1862); Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, edited by Roy P. Basler
1860s
Contexto: In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all; and, to the young, it comes with bitterest agony, because it takes them unawares. The older have learned to ever expect it. I am anxious to afford some alleviation of your present distress. Perfect relief is not possible, except with time. You can not now realize that you will ever feel better. Is not this so? And yet it is a mistake. You are sure to be happy again. To know this, which is certainly true, will make you some less miserable now. I have had experience enough to know what I say; and you need only to believe it, to feel better at once.

„You're lovely as a flower,
So pure and fair to see;
I look at you, and sadness
Comes stealing over me.“

—  Heinrich Heine German poet, journalist, essayist, and literary critic 1797 - 1856

Du bist wie eine Blume,
So hold und schön und rein;
Ich schau dich an, und Wehmut
Schleicht mir ins Herz hinein.
Du Bist Wie eine Blume, st. 1
