„The soul would have no rainbow
Had the eyes no tears.“

— John Vance Cheney
Context: Not in the time of pleasure Hope doth set her bow; But in the sky of sorrow, Over the vale of woe. Through gloom and shadow look we On beyond the years! The soul would have no rainbow Had the eyes no tears. The Century Vol. 44, Issue 4 (August 1892)
