Grief quotes
Grief can take care of itself; but to get the full value of a joy you must have somebody to divide it with.

- Twain, Mark
FUNERAL, n. A pageant whereby we attest our respect for the dead by enriching the undertaker, and strengthen our grief by an expenditure that deepens our groans and doubles our tears. The savage dies -- they sacrifice a horse To bear to happy hunting-grounds the corse. Our friends expire -- we make the money fly In hope their souls will chase it to the sky. Jex Wopley

- Ambrose Bierce
That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man - when I could get it - and bear the lash as well! And ain't I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman?

- Sojourner Truth
Well has it been said that there is no grief like the grief which does not speak.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Don't order any black things. Rejoice in his memory; and be radiant: leave grief to the children. Wear violet and purple. Be patient with the poor people who will snivel: they don't know; and they think they will live for ever, which makes death a division instead of a bond.

- Shaw, George Bernard
Never ask the Gods for life set free from grief, but ask for courage that endureth long.

- Menander of Athens
Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of a joy you must have somebody to divide it with.

- Mark Twain
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate now knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

- Nouwen, Henri
How was He, The blessed One, made perfect? Why, by grief-- The fellowship of voluntary grief-- He read the tear-stained book of poor men's souls, As we must learn to read it. Lady! lady! Wear but one robe the less--forego one meal-- And thou shalt taste the core of many tales, Which now flit past thee, like a minstrel's songs, The sweeter for their sadness.

- Saint's Tragedy, Act ii. Scene v. 1847.
For pleasures past I do not grieve, nor perils gathering near; My greatest grief is that I leave nothing that claims a tear.

- Byron, Lord
The fact is that a man who wants to act virtuously in every way necessarily comes to grief among so many who are not virtuous.

- Machiavelli, Niccolo
These days grief seems like walking on a frozen river; most of the time he feels safe enough, but there is always that danger he will plunge through.

- David Nicholls
'T is better to be lowly born, And range with humble livers in content, Than to be perked up in a glistering grief, And wear a golden sorrow.

- William Shakespeare
Ready tears are a sign of treachery, not of grief.

- Publilius Syrus
As grand and griefless as a rich man's funeral.

- Dobell, Sidney Thompson
. . . Every winter, When the great sun has turned his face away, The earth goes down into the vale of grief, And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables, Leaving her wedding garments to decay; Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses.
Saint's Tragedy, Act iii. Scene i.
Out of the morning land, Over the snow-drifts, Beautiful Freya came, Tripping to Scoring. White were the moorlands, And frozen before her; Green were the moorlands, And blooming behind her. Out of her gold locks Shaking the spring flowers, Out of her garments Shaking the south wind, Around in the birches Awaking the throstles, Love and love-giving, Came she to Scoring. . . . . .

- The Longbeard's Saga. 1852.
Grief is light that is capable of counsel.

- Proverb
If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. That's the lesson. That lesson alone, will save you a lot of grief. Even doubt means don't.

- Oprah Winfrey
But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun! Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou her maid are far more fair than she.

- William Shakespeare
In private grief with careless scorn. In public seem to triumph and not to mourn.

- Grannville
