Day Of The Dead by William-Adolphe Bouguereau

Cquote1.svg

 Laugh, and the world laughs with you;

Weep, and you weep alone.

For this sad old earth must borrow its mirth,

But has grief enough of its own.

Cquote2.svg

Tropes used to evoke or convey sadness and melancholy. Happiness Tropes are their natural opposite.


Good God, there's a lot more of these than there are Happiness Tropes, aren't there?

Just because sadness comes in more varieties than happiness doesn't mean that it's more prevalent.
