  • In deep sadness there is no place for sentimentality. – William S. Burroughs

  • The baby boomer surge is forcing society to face decisions about costs – and particularly what is valuable. It’s senseless for clinicians and governments to bear these choices alone; a sad effect of needless paternalism is that it places a false burden on responsible people. – Dave deBronkart
  • To have felt too much is to end in feeling nothing. – Dorothy Thompson

  • I’ve seen a couple white girls coming to my concerts wearing head wraps, and I think they look so cute.

It’s not the way the world is supposed to be. – Yuna

  • A tragedy need not have blood and death; it’s enough that it all be filled with that majestic sadness that is the pleasure of tragedy. – Jean Racine
  • People tend to put entertainers on pedestals. We’re human beings, just like you. You may see us smiling, and whether we have money or not, we still have bills to pay, we still have our stresses.

But so many here in the two volumes of his collected stories, 186 by my count, stories to read, reread, savor over the course of a cold season. Updike’s genius in the short form spills out of these many, many pages. – Alan Cheuse
  • The pro athlete is a sad tale. He signs a big contract and thinks he’s set for life. I didn’t think I was set for life, and I don’t now.

  • The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon shook our nation to the core. Americans were deeply frightened, sad, and angry, and they rallied around a President who, at the time, showed impressive certitude and calm. – Eliot Spitzer
  • With Facebook, you’re not really allowed to be unhappy. Think about it: There’s only a like button. Yes, you can be angry, but it’s only lighthearted rage. On Reddit, perhaps because you can be anonymous, people are willing to be openly sad or angry. They are more honest. – Yishan Wong
  • I’ve been on Prozac for 12 years and I’m off it now. I know what it feels like to be excited and sad again. I haven’t felt like this in 12 years; I’m like a giddy little kid. – Jonathan Davis

  • Fortune has played me a sad trick by letting me live on and on. – Belle Boyd
  • If the sad truth be known, writers, being the misfits we are, probably ought not to belong to families in the first place. We simply are too self-interested, though we may excuse the flaw by calling it ‘focused.’ – Roger Rosenblatt
  • We all suffer in our own way; like, life is miserable. And I’m not, ‘Oh, I’m a stand-up who’s sad,’ but the reality is that just about everyone is quietly unhappy. I don’t think that pertains to comedians specifically. I think most people look at themselves in the mirror and are not happy with what they see. – Nick Kroll
  • Marketing has supplanted story as the primary force behind the worthiness of making a film, and that’s a very sad thing. It’s film only as a function of consumerism rather than as an important component of our culture, and that’s everywhere around the world. – Alexander Payne
  • It’s a sad indication of where Washington has come, where policy differences almost necessarily become questions of integrity.

  • I work extremely hard to stay positive and happy. But I get sad and anxious, too, just like everyone. – Rachel Platten
  • I mean, I was just one of the ones who got exposed, and because of the position I was in, where I was in my life, it went mainstream.

  • I’m very free with all my emotions, whether it’s happy, sad, mad, glad, whatever. – Kimberly Elise
  • When you’re going through something, whether it’s a wonderful thing like having a child or a sad thing like losing somebody, you often feel like ‘Oh my God, I’m so overwhelmed; I’m dealing with this huge thing on my own.’ In fact, poetry’s a nice reminder that, no, everybody goes through it. These are universal experiences. – Caroline Kennedy

  • All pictures are unnatural. All pictures are sad because they’re about dead people. Paintings you don’t think of in a special time or with a specific event. With photos I always think I’m looking at something dead. – David Bailey
  • The sad truth is that opportunity doesn’t knock twice. – Gloria Estefan
  • It’s always sad if anybody you know has a personal problem. – Lee Child

  • What I really tried to do with Helen was make her show this sad side of her. She was married off at 16, was so young and living in this castle that can’t leave because of how she looks, and married to a man she hates and three times her age. – Diane Kruger
  • I love the romcom. I thought I had a career playing the best friend. What happened to that? It’s really sad to me. – Parker Posey

  • One of the things psychologists used to say was that if you are depressed, anxious or angry, you couldn’t be happy. Those were at opposite ends of a continuum.

  • My mother, I suppose, is still a main figure in my life because her life was so sad and unfair, and she so brave, but also because she was determined to make me into the Sunday-school-recitation little girl I was, from the age of seven or so, fighting not to be. – Alice Munro
  • What we want to help children with is, just because you feel sad or happy or depressed doesn’t mean that is who you are. We want them to know, ‘I am really sad right now, but I am not a sad person.’ – Goldie Hawn
  • This is how sad my life is: I got a scar from scratching my chicken pox too much. That’s my big scar story. I really have no major scars. – Lewis Black
  • When I write sad songs, I feel like I’m sewing up a scar in me, and the outcome always feels so much better than when I write happy ones. – Sam Smith
  • Making people laugh is so much more difficult than making them sad. Too much fiction defaults to the somber, the tragic. This is because sad endings are easy in comparison – happy endings aren’t at all simple to earn, especially when writing to an audience jaded by them. – Stephen Graham Jones

  • If you don’t know about pain and trouble, you’re in sad shape. They make you appreciate life. – Evel Knievel

  • I just want fans to walk away knowing that no matter what’s going on, no matter how happy you are, no matter how sad you are, we did it. We’re strong in this. We’ve come a long way, and life is not just one thing. – Mary J. Blige
  • It’s the sad thing about entertainment: it’s not always about who is the best. Jake The Snake had a horrible time playing politics. I never had a belt; didn’t need one. They tried to put me against Hogan twice, but when the people chanted for me, when they chanted for the DDT, that was the end of that. They couldn’t ruin their marketing. – Jake Roberts
  • I think social media has taken over for our generation. It’s a big part of our lives, and it’s kind of sad. – Kendall Jenner

  • Sad to say, multi-tasking is beyond me. I read one book at a time all the way through. If I’m reviewing the book, I have to write the review before I start reading any other book. I especially hate it when the phone rings and interrupts my train of thought. – Michael Dirda
  • I was in a bar and I said to a friend, ‘You know, we’ve become those 40-year-old guys we used to look at and say, ‘Isn’t it sad?’ – George Clooney

  • However, we might oppose it, abortion is a sad feature of modern life. – Robert Casey
  • A lot of country music is sad. I think most art comes out of poverty and hard times. It applies to music. Three chords and the truth – that’s what a country song is. There is a lot of heartache in the world. – Willie Nelson
  • Since I had the baby I can’t tolerate anything violent or sad, I saw the Matrix and I had my eyes closed through a lot of it, though I didn’t need to. I would peek, and then think, oh OK, I can see that. – Lisa Kudrow

  • It looks like I’m just gonna keep getting really, really happy and sad and embarrassed and excited and disappointed for the rest of my life, so let’s just do that. – Jenny Slate
  • It’s important to get well-rounded right off the bat. A lot of experienced dancers can get pigeonholed into one thing.

  • If some people try to make a prenup into a pre-negotiation of a divorce… Well, that’s really sad. But I do think that it’s important to understand what each person has coming into the relationship, and what each person expects from the relationship. They aren’t always fun discussions to have, and they can be very eye-opening. – Laura Wasser
  • I think people tend to forget that as celebrities we are still human. We have the same emotions – we cry, we have fun, we laugh, we get sad, and we get hurt.

  • When DVDs finally disappear, I’m going to be sad. I’ll miss the commentaries. – Matt Groening

  • Of course, you decide which story you want to tell. For me, it’s been very authentic, so sometimes I’m super happy, and I post four pictures one after the other; sometimes I’m busy, and I don’t. Sometimes I’m sad, and I post a sad picture. – Chiara Ferragni
