In German we say: "Built close to the water" with the meaning of "weepy". So are the city of Venice and its melancholic tourists.

"Melancholy is the happiness of being sad," said Victor Hugo. Sadness and melancholy are deeply connected with beauty and love. Twelve quotations in four different languages describe melancholy in different facets and cultures. Venice is the perfect setting for Model Romana Lara who expresses this feeling.
”Le malheur et la mélancolie sont les interprètes les plus éloquents de l'amour .”
Honoré de Balzac

Unhappiness and melancholy are the most eloquent interpreters of love.
”Il est toujours triste de partir d'un lieu où l'on sait que l'on ne reviendra jamais. Voilà de ces mélancolies qui sont peut-être une des choses les plus profitables des voyages.“
Gustave Flaubert

It is always sad to leave a place where you know you will never come back. These are some of the melancholy things that are perhaps one of the most profitable things in traveling.

“And so being young and dipped in folly I fell in love with melancholy.”
 Edgar Allan Poe

”Wie die Gefahr des Tauchers der Tintenfisch, so des Grüblers die Melancholie.“
Christian Morgenstern

The melancholy of the broody person is like the danger of the octopus for the diver.

”La mélancolie est l’illustre compagnon de la beauté; elle l’est si bien que je ne peux concevoir aucune beauté qui ne porte en elle sa tristesse.“
Charles Baudelaire

Melancholy is the illustrious companion of beauty; it is so well known that I cannot conceive of any beauty that does not carry within it its sadness. 

“I felt that I breathed an atmosphere of sorrow.”
 Edgar Allan Poe
”La mélancolie, c'est le bonheur d'être triste.”
Victor Hugo

Melancholy is the joy of being sad. 

”Un dì si venne a me Malinconia
e disse: «Io voglio un poco stare teco»;
e parve a me ch'ella menasse seco
Dolore e Ira per sua compagnia.”
Dante Alighieri

One day, melancholy came to me and said: «I want to be with you a little bit.» And it seemed to me that she had anger and pain with her as companions.

”Coda: Und kann ich nicht sein Mit dir zu zwein, So will ich, allein, Der Schwermut mich weihn!“
Joseph Karl Benedikt Freiherr von Eichendorff

Coda: And if I can't be with thee in twos, I will, alone, dedicate myself to melancholy!
