We must know the pain of loss; because if we never knew it, we would have no compassion for others, and we would become monsters of self-regard, creatures of unalloyed self-interest. The terrible pain of loss teaches humility to our prideful kind, has the power to soften uncaring hearts, to make a better person of a good one.

  • All of these quotes are amazing. However, I noticed that another quote post is closed for comments. As a result, I could not post anything regarding specific comedians that passed away. Let me start with Rodney Dangerfield. I absolutely loved this guys comedy! In fact, I think that I have seen every comedy with him in it. If I am correct, he even had a song and video titled “No Respect”. Also, I really enjoyed reading his quote. It was funny. Rodney Dangerfield was one of my favorite comedians. Further, I used to watch the Marx brothers’ movies.
    Lets see. There was Groucho, Harpo, and I forgot who the other one was. I want to say that his name was curly. But, it was not. Anyway, Curly was from The Three Stooges. Speaking of comedians, have you ever thought about coming up with a blog post about the late great Robin Williams? I was thinking about him while reading the quotes that you have posted on your blog. I figured that you would have a page dedicated to him with a lot of his funny quotes. I was just thinking. May Robin Williams rest in peace.
