“Where there is sorrow there is holy ground.”

Oscar Wilde

Speaking of Oscar Wilde, De Profundis, his 50,000-word open letter from jail to Lord Alfred Douglas, with whom he had a tempestuous relationship, is well worth a read. The above quote, which I love, is printed here as “Where there is sorrow there in holy ground,” which I presume is a typo, unless it’s supposed to be “therein.” At any rate, a very moving change of heart and mind is contained in the letter.
