 Interestingly, this quote is a part of one of Ella Wheeler Wilcox's poems, "Solitude". You can read the whole poem here

It is not a typical text for Wheeler Wilcox, but she wrote it after she had met a crying young woman on a journey to a ball. She had tried to comfort (trösten) her and then felt extremely depressed herself, even at the ball.
