    Welcome to the forum, mitix. Please try to make your thread title relevant to your question. 'Moved by/with sorrow?' would have been good for this.

    Neither appears very natural to me. I'd say, "Sorrow moved me to tears".
    -She started ( learning, to learn) English when she was three.
    Both are acceptable.
