William Shakespeare - A E Aytoun - Sydney J Harris - Alexander Pope - Homer - Anne Bronte - William Blake -   

 

 

50,564.  Shall we play the wantons with our woes,

And make some pretty match with shedding tears?  (Woe & Tears)  William Shakespeare, Richard II III iii 164

 

 

50,565.  But I have that within which passeth show;

These but the trappings and the suits of woe.  William Shakespeare, Hamlet I ii 85

 

 

1,103.  To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite;

To forgive wrongs darker than death or night;

To defy Power, which seems omnipotent;

To love, and bear; to hope till Hope creates

From its own wreck the thing it contemplates;

Neither to change, nor falter, no repent;

This, like thy glory, Titan is to be

Good, great and joyous, beautiful and free;

This is alone Life, Joy, Empire and Victory.  (Woe & Suffering & Life’s Like That & Victory)  Percy Bysshe Shelley, Prometheus Unbound

 

 

1,172.  For what is this world but grief and woe?

O God!  Methinks it were a happy life

To be not better than a homely swain.  (Life’s Like That & World & Grief & Woe)  William Shakespeare, Richard Duke of York II v 20-22, King Henrys soliloquy

 

 

50,796.  God for his mercy, what a tide of woes

Comes rushing on this woeful land at once.  William Shakespeare, Richard II II ii 98-99, York to Servingman

 

 

5,372.  Why, headstrong liberty is lashed with woe.  (Liberty & Civil Liberties & Woe)  William Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors II i 15, Luciana to Adriana

 

 

50,797.  This day’s black fate on more days doth depend

This but begins the woe others must end.  William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet III i 119-120, Romeo to Benvolio

 

 

50,798.  Though woe be heavy, yet it seldom sleeps,

And they that watch see time how slow it creeps.  William Shakespeare, The Rape of Lucrece 1574-1575

 

 

50,799.  The deep unutterable woe

Which none but exiles feel.  W E Aytoun 1813-1865, The Island of the Scots 1849, Scottish lawyer and writer of ballads

 

 

50,800.  Ninety per cent of the world’s woe comes from people not knowing themselves, their abilities, their frailties, and even their real virtues.  Most of us go almost all the way through life as complete strangers to ourselves – so how can we know anyone else?  Sydney J Harris

 

 

50,801.  Teach me to feel another’s woe,

To hide the fault I see,

That mercy I to others show,

That mercy show to me.  Alexander Pope, The Universal Prayer

 

 

50,802.  And woe succeeds to woe.  Homer, Iliad

 

 

50,803.  Long exercised in woes.  Homer, Odyssey  

 

 

51,138.  Oh, I am very weary,

Though tears no longer flow;

My eyes are tired of weeping,

My heart is sick of woe.  (Weep & Tears & Woe)  Anne Bronte

 

 

78,254.  Can I see another’s woe.

And not be in sorrow too?

Can I see another’s grief

And not seek for kind relief?  (Kind & Woe & Sorrow & Grief)  William Blake
