"Your sorrow is of the calmer, mine of the more passionate kind, yet though the affection of the mind be the same, it takes its colour in each from the different channels through which it runs; and indeed it is but natural, that the greatest misfortunes should produce the most disquieting anxieties."
— Rousseau, Jean-Jacques (1712-1778); Kenrick, William (1729/30-1779)
(I, p. 91)
