Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.

Answered prayers cause more tears than those that remain unanswered.
The busy have no time for tears.
The way I see things, the way I see life, I see it as a struggle. And there's a great deal of reward I have gained coming to that understanding -- that existence is a struggle.
What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say.
We never say so much as when we do not quite know what we want to say. We need few words when we have something to say, but all the words in all the dictionaries will not suffice when we have nothing to say and want desperately to say it.
They never taste who always drink; they always talk who never think.
To talk without thinking is to shoot without aiming.
The more you know the less you need to say.
I like to do all the talking myself. It saves time, and prevents arguments.
Of all things which wisdom provides to make life entirely happy, much the greatest is the possession of friendship.
The only way to have a friend is to be one.

Don't order any black things. Rejoice in his memory; and be radiant: leave grief to the children. Wear violet and purple. Be patient with the poor people who will snivel: they don't know; and they think they will live for ever, which makes death a division instead of a bond.
Grief can't be shared. Everyone carries it alone. His own burden in his own way.
Grief is the agony of an instant. The indulgence of grief the blunder of a life.
There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.
