Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Anguish
 
One pain is lessen’d by another’s anguish;
One desperate grief cures with another’s languish.
        Shakespeare.—Romeo and Juliet, Act I. Scene 2. (Benvolio to Romeo.)
  1
Grief finds some ease by him that like does bear.
        Spenser.—Daphnaida, Line 67.
  2
        The man who melts
With social sympathy, though not allied,
Is of more worth than a thousand kinsmen.
        Euripides.—Orestes, 805.—(Dr. Ramage, 133.)
  3
Nor light the recompense, when they who hear,
Melt at the melancholy tale, and drop—
In pity drop, the sympathizing tear.
        Æschylus.—Prometheus, 637.—(Dr. Ramage, 8.) (Beautiful Thoughts from Greek Authors.)
