Quotes for: tragedy
There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.
Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fantasies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing. The child mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be in after years relieved of them.
A tragedy need not have blood and death it's enough that it all be filled with that majestic sadness that is the pleasure of tragedy.
