Robert Christy, comp.  Proverbs, Maxims and Phrases of All Ages.  1887.
Alas! by some degree of woe, we every bliss must gain,
The heart can ne’er a transport know, that never feels a pain.  Lord Lyttleton.
By telling our woes we often assuage them.  French.  2
He scorned his own who felt another’s woe.  Campbell.  3
No scene of mortal life but teems with mortal woe.  Scott.  4
Woe to him who is alone when he falleth.  5
Woe to the house where there is no chiding.  6
Woes cluster, rare are solitary woes,
They love a train, they tread each other’s heels.  Young.
