Weekend Quote: Sorrow

“Work is the best antidote to sorrow.”
– Sherlock Holmes, ‘The Empty House’

This succinct quote has been in my head for some time.  In real life I heard someone say a variation of this, about this time last year, and then I experienced it myself.  One of the truest, most useful quotes from any book I’ve read.
