I see where you're coming from. Sometimes I think quotes are too dogmatic, too absolute - that's the problem of quotes, then again, that's also the beauty of quotes; it is with their assertive authority that makes people believe them and live them out loud.
Don't really agree with this quote. If you had a friend who made bad choices, you probably wouldn't say, "You don't deserve my tears." and then just leave them alone. You would probably help them with their problems.
