Victorian Clipart for Collage, Scrapbooking or Card Making: Melancholy Young Girl Picking Wildflowers 1 (Digital Ephemera, Instant Download)

The word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
Carl Jung

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.
Washington Irving

Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A black and white illustration from the September 7, 1873 issue of La Mode Illustrée. This image shows a melancholy-looking young Victorian girl of about 9 years old bundled up in a warm jacket for the fall weather. She is out for a walk in the woods and has stopped to gaze pensively at a small bunch of wildflowers clutched in her hand.
