These sad quotes about life will help you to work through the pain

While you cannot avoid feeling sad and sorrowful from time to time, you can do a lot about how you deal with these emotions.

And that is why they forget their dreams.’„

Because we are alone with the unfamiliar presence that has entered us; because everything we trust and are used to is for a moment taken away from us; because we stand in the midst of a transition where we cannot remain standing.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
