\n. \n The Saddest of All Prisons is a Person's Own Heart \n. \n. \nNathaniel Hawthorne said "The saddest of all prisons is a man's own heart." ... it is always hard to say what an author meant, because we can't talk to him and actually ask. We have to guess. Sometimes it helps to consider …the context in which he wrote... but since this question is out of context, I'll be more general.\n. \nThe idea of being trapped (as in a prison) within your own heart might mean that you have bottled up your emotions so that you can't express them. Being unable to express emotion would probably be damaging to a person, because that would negatively affect interpersonal relationships, and in most cases negate the possibility of a fulfilling intimate relationship with a significant other. Being trapped within your own heart could also have to do with not only emotion, but belief or ideas. Perhaps what you believe and what you want in other ways are in conflict. Remaining in the prison of your heart and not finding a resolution to that conflict could cause a form of self-torture, because going against your beliefs would be painful, and not going against your beliefs would also be painful. Those unresolved conflicts, or bottled emotions would cause a very sad situation for a human being... thus, the quote. (MORE)

I am 15no bf.no first kiss.i have been very sad and depressed lately.do you think it might be because of that reason?
possibly. i went through the same thing. but trust me first kisses are not that great. i hated my first kiss because it wasnt really my choice. its great to have a caring boyfriend. in my opinon your sad because you don't feel wanted. that's how i felt. i am really sorry. i am currently boyfreindles…s also. and kinda heartbroken bacause the last bf i had was a player. trust me though guys are not something to get bant out of shape about. they make you happy at first and then when it ends your more sad then you were before you dated. for example. i have this really good freind who had this amazing boyfriend. they dated for a couple months and then kissed. he kissed her again and told her he loved her. then dumped he rthe next week. she spent the next while crying her eyes out. i guess i really didnt answer our question but this is all i got for you.

What is the meaning of ''For of all sad words of tongue or pen The saddest are these 'it might have been' ''?
Out of context : This is the core of regret. Not of regret for past deeds or wrongs done, but for opportunities lost. For most situations in human experience there is a finite window of opportunity. When that window has closed, it is often closed forever. The author is saying simply that there is no… greater sense of despair or loss, sadness, than to realize that something could have happened that was not acted upon.. This is a line from the poem "Maud Muller" by John Greenleaf Whittier.. In the context of the poem: This is still about regret, the road not taken. Young Maud had met a man in her youth who found her attractive, and whom she found equally attractive. She desired for happiness, and to pass on her good fortune by marrying a fair man, and a man of means. By either of them not taking the opportunity when it presented, Maud lived a life of hardship and sorrow that left its mark on her. Her regret was externally visible as well as internally felt.

Sad Little Houses Amparo R. Asuncion The sad little houses, the poor little houses Crowd by the riverside; The holes in their roofs, the crack in the walls, Vainly they try to hide The stench of the river, the dark, muddy river Is with them night and day; Pure, fresh air may be h…ad for the moving, But they can't move away. They can only stand by the bank of the river Buried knee-deep in clay; They can only stare at the drifting garbage, Until they, too, decay. And pass away into ghost of houses Killed by a burning sun, Smothered with dust and then forgotten- Forgotten by everyone. (MORE)

Might have. "Might of" is an error, most likely caused by the contraction "might've", which often sounds quite similar to "might of" when used in conversation. This is one of my favourite examples of a phrase being shaped by unintentionally imitating misheard speech rather than reading the phrase an…d allowing it to dictate the way it is pronounced, and later spelt. It is a big circle of miscommunication. "Might've" is sort of slang. "Might of" is not truly a real phrase. Many people make this mistake. (MORE)

sad! feeling sad is a problem a lot of teenagers face today. we feel sad because of some depressions of our mind. god has crated us to live happily in this wonderful world, so why do we feel sad? mostly we feel sad because of the stress and some problems. problems are common to everyone, no one is p…erfect in this world. if you are feeling sad of a problem, just think about others who have problems than you, then you can feel happy of your self. actually i was always sad a year ago, i didn't feel to study, i didn't want to be with my parents, always i wanted to be alone and cry.. my parents have noticed this and they took me to a psychiatrist, he was very kind to me and he consulted me very softly..still i have a contact with him and now i don't feel sad for nothing as before. i think it's better to consult a psychiatrist and solve your problems. and also when you feel sad try to do something what you like, pray.. you will be ok very soon. don't worry dear, everything will be alright. may god bless you and protect you.

I think the message of that poem is this: There are many sad little houses in our lives today. These are the things that we don't tend to mind.
