Poems on Self Pity

look-to-sky

Self Pity

I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.

- D.H.Lawrence

~

Do not be a victim  
To self-pity.  
Self-pity is at once  
The beginning and the end
Of life’s uselessness.

- Sri Chinmoy
