More Washington Irving quotes :
There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.Washington Irving
Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart.Washington Irving
