The Title

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. Some of you say, ‘Joy is greater than sorrow,’ and others say, ‘Nay, sorrow is the greater.’ But I say unto you, they are inseparable. Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed. -Kahlil Gibran

    It’s better to feel sorrow than no pain at all. There is realness in sorrow and it keeps you humble. Joy comes after sorrow, and to be in abundance of joy is to have first felt sorrow…..and so, Together they come.
