Self Pity

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
Without ever having felt sorry for itself.

-- D.H. Lawrence

I came across this short poem by D.H. Lawrence for the first time while watching the movie G.I. Jane. Its powerful message punctuated this movie with an overarching theme, and a powerful message. Whether you liked the film or not (I did), Lawrence's words, in my view gave it more impact and meaning.
