Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.
Khalil Gibran

When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
Tecumseh

Life is like an onion. You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.
Carl Sandburg

Those who don't know how to weep with their whole heart, don't know how to laugh either.
Golda Meir

The very winds whispered in soothing accents, and maternal Nature bade me weep no more.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

George Harrison
"While My Guitar Gently Weeps"

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

Wellâ¦

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

Oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, ooh

Thanks Don.
I really like this one:
"The very winds whispered in soothing accents, and maternal Nature bade me weep no more."
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Some mornings in my garden are so perfect that I could weep with joy.
