One woe doth tread upon another's heel So fast they follow.
O thou, the friend of man assigned, With balmy hands his wounds to bind, And charm his frantic woe: When first Distress with dagger keen Broke forth to waste his destined scene, His wild unsated foe!william collins
Behold, we live through all things,—famine, thirst,Bereavement, pain; all grief and misery,All woe and sorrow; life inflicts its worstOn soul and body,—but we can not die,Though we be sick and tired and faint and worn,—Lo, all things can be borne!elizabeth chase allen
A leader is one who, out of madness or goodness, volunteers to take upon himself the woe of the people. There are few men so foolish, hence the erratic quality of leadership in the world.john updike
In Greek fable, as in Christian, it is asserted that there is a forbidden knowledge which brings nothing into world but woe. Our generation has had ample demonstration of what that knowledge is. It is knowledge of the useful rather than the true and the good, of techniques rather than of ends.richard weaver
Titan! to whom immortal eyes The sufferings of mortality Seen in their sad reality, Were not as things that gods despise; What was thy pity's recompense? A silent suffering, and intense; The rock, the vulture, and the chain, All that the proud can feel of pain, The agony they do not show, The suffocating sense of woe, Which speaks but in its loneliness, And then is jealous lest the sky Should have a listener, nor will sigh Until its voice is echoless.
Auspicious Hope! in thy sweet garden grow Wreaths for each toil, a charm for every woe.thomas campbell
woe to that nation whose literature is cut short by the intrusion of force. This is not merely interference with freedom of the press but the sealing up of a nation's heart, the excision of its memory.
Of man's first disobedience, and the fruit Of that forbidden tree, whose mortal taste Brought death into the world, and all our woe, With loss of Eden, till one greater Man Restore us, and regain the blissful seat.john milton
Peace; come away: the song of woe Is after all an earthly song: Peace; come away: we do him wrong To sing so wildly: let us go.Tennyson
Such grief might make the mountain stoop, reverse the waters where they flow, but cannot burst these ponderous bolts that block us from the prison cells crowded with mortal woe...anna akhmatova

Affliction is the good man's shining scene; Prosperity conceals his brightest ray; As night to stars, woe lustre gives to man.Edward Young
God's mills grind slow, But they grind woe.
If I should die to-night And you should come in deepest grief and woe And say: "Here's that ten dollars that I owe," I might arise in my large white cravat And say, "What's that?"
When life is woe, and hope is dumb, the World says, "Go!" The Grave says, "Come!"arthur guiterman
Above all, beware of compromises. Hold on to your own principles in weal or woe and never adjust them to others’ “fads” through the greed of getting supporters. Your Atman is the support of the universe whose support do you stand in need of?
Thou has been called,O Sleep! the friend of woe, But 'tis the happy who have called thee so.Robert Southey
