Being Lutheran, Mother believed that self-pity is a deadly sin and so is nostalgia, and she had no time for either
Garrison Keillor

George Eliot
Pity is for the living, envy is for the dead
Mark Twain
Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.
Helen Keller
Soft pity enters an iron gate.
William Shakespeare
To show pity is felt as a sign of contempt because one has clearly ceased to be an object of fear as soon as one is pitied.
Friedrich Nietzsche
When you visualized a man or woman carefully, you could always begin to feel pity -- that was a quality God's image carried with it. When you saw the lines at the corners of the eyes, the thape of the mouth, how the hair grew, it was impossible to hate. Hate was just a failure of imagination.
Graham Greene
