        Idk man. Nothing in a book has ever made me so sad that I've cried. Films do sometimes. Maybe after hitting rock bottom, sadness just doesn't move me anymore. I've been moved off of a cliff by it.

            You seem more mid than him, honestly. You seem to think all intelligent people experience Art the same way. That's an imbecile's sentiment if ever there was one.

          I can kinda relate. I was so depressed and suicidal at one point I feel like I've experienced sadness for a lifetime and to such a degree that sadness doesn't move me anymore. I'm not callous, or insensitive, I just don't feel it was strongly as I used to, and react to it. For instance sad books, music and films used to make me cry, at least shed a tear or two. But since being at my lowest I haven't even shed a tear, and that was 7 years ago. Last sad novel I read was Stoner, which would have probably made me shed a tear, but I was unmoved, evene though I enjoyed it. It's kinda sad I've lost this ability to feel sadness deeply.

        Okay so you think he's a midwit because he sounds like the kind of person who uses never a lot despite contradicting himself constantly; e.g "I never do X", "I will never do Y", "I only do Z" etc
        I agree these people are very stupid not just midwits, but you also sound like a massive sperg for lashing out on random people like that.

      Sol? Wasn't it. Utterly redeemed Hyperion for me. Until that point it was just a middling genre fiction mashup. Sad, but not without hope. The hope makes it cruel, I guess.

      And I still think about Flowers almost daily since reading. Not just a sad story a warning to everyone against legal euthanasia for untreatable, chronic, and worsening conditions like Dementia.

      The Book Thief got to me. It might get you too if you don't have anything in particular against the israelites in WWII. Otherwise you might consider it a comedy.

    >Un brouhaha le ramena à Saint-Sulpice ; la maîtrise partait ; l’église allait se clore. J’aurais bien dû tâcher de prier, se dit-il ; cela eût mieux valu que de rêvasser dans le vide ainsi sur une chaise ; mais prier ? Je n’en ai pas le désir ; je suis hanté par le catholicisme, grisé par son atmosphère d’encens et de cire, je rôde autour de lui, touché jusqu’aux larmes par ses prières, pressuré jusqu’aux moelles par ses psalmodies et par ses chants. Je suis bien dégoûté de ma vie, bien las de moi, mais de là à mener une autre existence il y a loin ! Et puis… et puis… si je suis perturbé dans les chapelles, je redeviens inému et sec dès que j’en sors. Au fond, se dit-il, en se levant et en suivant les quelques personnes qui se dirigeaient, rabattues par le suisse vers une porte, au fond, j’ai le cœur racorni et fumé par les noces, je ne suis bon à rien

    I got really emotional at Frankenstein’s monster looking through the window of the family in the woods, eating with the blind old man, and longing for inclusion and the love of another.
    I don’t remember if I cried, I probably did. I have a soft spot for outcasts and misfits in general.

    The ending of The Road. Probably the first time I ever cried reading a book; which was in middle school during my free period lol. I was sitting there trying to finish the book because I was really enjoying it. Ended up having to hide my face because I was crying.

    Only ever really the one I am writing and I often find myself feeling shallow if a sad moment doesn't make me upset as I know I can be invested in what I have written prior. But, to go onto something that's actually published properly, I want to say Of Mice and Men, but, it's always really the film that does that, not the book itself.

      Fantine’s death is as saddening as Valjean’s. Especially with the cold and indifferent Javert looking over her at the end. It only adds to the feeling of how the downtrodden of society die to a careless world.

    The ending of Spring Snow by Mishima. Throughout the entire novel you can see events circling towards the inevitable endpoint, which all of the characters are aware of yet are helpless to escape. And then there's the finale of Decay of the Angel, where Mishima admits that the events of the first book in the series were utterly meaningless. In old age Satako couldn't remember that Kiyoaki even existed, let alone the fact that he sacrificed himself out of love for her. It's no wonder that Mishima killed himself days after writing it.
