Here's a favorite quote of mine:

I think our country sinks beneath the yoke;
It weeps, it bleeds, and each new day a gash
Is added to her wounds

But not all gloom and doom
Here's another:

We, ignorant of ourselves
Beg often our own harms, which the wise powers
Deny us for our good; so find we profit
By losing of our prayers.

Antony and Cleopatra

And one more, if I may:

Hope is a lover's staff; walk hence with that
And manage it against despairing thoughts.

WS (of course)
Two Gentlemen of Verona
