A Sorrow Shared
If a friend of mine...gave a feast, and did not invite me to it, I should not mind a bit....But if...a friend of mine had a sorrow and refused to allow me to share it, I should feel it most bitterly. If a friend shut the doors of the house of mourning against me, I would move back again and again and beg to be admitted so that I might share in what I was entitled to share. If my friend thought me unworthy, unfit to weep with him, I should feel it as the most poignant humiliation....
(Oscar Wilde, Irish Author, 1854-1900)
