Snap Out of Your Blues With Sad Life Quotes

By

When sorrow strikes, life seems like the Old Hag who is out to ruin a good day. As Jim Rohn said, "The walls we build around us to keep out the sadness also keep out the joy." Let us not dwell on our sadness. If life gives us a lemon, we know what to do with it, right? Here are some sad life quotes that help you get out of your moody blues.
