Pity quotes (6)

Pity is best taught by fellowship in woe.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge   Category: Pity

Sometimes I go about pitying myself And all the while I am being carried across the sky By beautiful clouds.
Proverb   Category: Pity

Of all the paths lead to a womans love Pitys the straightest.
John Fletcher   Category: Pity

More helpful than all wisdom is one draught of simple human pity that will not forsake us.
George Eliot   Category: Pity

Pity is not natural to man. Children and savages are always cruel. Pity is acquired and improved by the cultivation of reason. We may have uneasy sensations from seeing a creature in distress without pity; but we have not pity unless we wish to relieve him.
Dr. Samuel Johnson   Category: Pity

PITIFUL adj. The state of an enemy of opponent after an imaginary encounter with oneself.
Ambrose Gwinett Bierce   Category: Pity
