sorrowful death

A Quote by Gottfried von Strassburg on bitter sweetness, dear grief, hearts delight, pain of longing, dear life, sorrowful death, dear death, and sorrowful life

Not the common world do I mean, of those who (as I have heard) cannot bear grief and desire but to bathe in bliss.  (May God then let them dwell in bliss!)  Another world I do hold in mind, which bears together in one heart its bitter sweetness and its dear grief, its heart's delight and its pain of longing, dear life and sorrowful death, dear death and sorrowful life.  In this world let me have my world, to be damned with it or to be saved.

Gottfried von Strassburg
