A Quote by Nama on disappointment

I missed experiencing it after all efforts.But I'm postponing my disappointment.The next time I get a chance, and I find that it wasn't that good and hardly useful, I'll see that it wasn't worth it.And if it turns out to be great , why would I want to remember that disappointment then?

A Quote by Jane Austen on comfort, disappointment, and expectations

There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are
all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails,
human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we
make a second better: we find comfort somewhere.

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817)

A Quote by Jim Harrison on jim harrison, legends of the fall, irony, sentiment, love, disappointment, and being human

I like grit, I like love and death, I'm tired of irony. ... A lot of good fiction is sentimental. ... The novelist who refuses sentiment refuses the full spectrum of human behavior, and then he just dries up. ... I would rather give full vent to all human loves and disappointments, and take a chance on being corny, than die a smartass."

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on anger, cynicism, disappointment, disillusionment, emotion, feeling, meaning, people, quality, relationships, and resentment

Lose/Win people bury a lot of feelings. And unexpressed feelings come forth later in uglier ways. Psychosomatic illnesses often are the reincarnation of cumulative resentment, deep disappointment and disillusionment repressed by the Lose/Win mentality. Disproportionate rage or anger, overreaction to minor provocation, and cynicism are other embodiments of suppressed emotion. People who are constantly repressing, not transcending feelings toward a higher meaning find that it affects the quality of their relationships with others.

Stephen Covey (1932 -)
