Can I see another's woe,And not be in sorrow too?Can I see another's grief,And not seek for kind relief?
There's a hope for every woe,And a balm for every pain,But the first joys of our heartCome never back again!The Exile's Song, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
We bear it calmly, though a ponderous woe,And still adore the hand that gives the blow.john pomfret
