lest we be overrun by the weeds of bitterness and regret.

I should not mind a bit.
but if a friend of mine had a sorrow
and refused to allow me to share it,

so that I might share in what I was entitled to share.
If he thought me unworthy, unfit to weep with him,
I should feel it as the most poignant humiliation.
- Oscar Wilde
