Sadness Quotes About Life

There are many sadness quotes about life in literature. Here are a few: 

An old Swedish proverb reads: “Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.” 

But my world fell apart, and all they could do, the whole universe, was to silently move on.”  Exactly how I felt in the first four weeks of experiencing the significant loss at the death of my husband. As people lived their merry lives, I wanted to scream “Don’t you know that Don died?”

The Sadness of Grief and Loss

Yes, the world goes on – even when your world dissolves. They do not understand. Take no offense.  Your loss, your grief, is unique to that relationship – your own unique relationship. Sorrow is singular because the loss is different for each individual. However, that sorrow can still be shared with another person even though he cannot feel the magnitude of that particular and personal loss – at least to the same degree. 

We build our own loneliness following sorrow, as expressed in this poem:

‘’She spent a lifetime Building Walls. 

Then sat there in her “lonely” 

Wondering why nothing grew.  


Articus also penned this memorable ditty:

“Sometimes the short poems are the hardest to write

Change one word and the whole poem avocados.” 😊

Remember a bit of humor softens the blow.

A relationship Can Mean Joy and Sorrow

“How can there be pain in a place where there is so much joy? A loving relationship is the most awesome experience in the world. This is why it also holds the potential for so much sadness.“  From Family Friends

Quotes about Sadness

“Nothing left to lose

I don’t know what to do

To bring me back to you.

I’ve nothing left to lose.

I’m sadness, tears, and blues.

All bridges have been crossed;

I guess our love is lost.”

Janice Fuchs

Living is also Experiencing Loss and Heartache

The more we open our hearts and lives to others, the more likely we will at some point experience loss and sorrow. It is worth the risk. Loving and sharing relationships are to be sought after and carefully protected.

In order to avoid hurt and sorrow, never allow yourself to love another. Oh, how barren is that thought!

Bible Verses for Sadness

Life can be difficult, unexpectedly heartbreaking, and hope-challenging. But God wants us to know there is abounding hope and limitless love through the gift of His son Jesus. We are assured of that in John 3:16, the most well-known verse in the Bible. 

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

“Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” Psalm 30: 5

“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me”, Jesus said in John 14:1

In John 14:27 He said, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid.”

2 Corinthians 4 “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed. Therefore, we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is fading, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.” 

Romans 12: “Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love – – – – Rejoicing in hope. Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good.”

Matthew 28:20 Jesus said, “And lo I am with you always, even to the end of the world.”

And Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. – – – – and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11: 28-30.
