Grief quotes
No one can keep his grieves in their prime; they use themselves up.

- Cioran, E. M.
Only those who know the supremacy of the intellectual life can understand the grief of one who falls from that serene activity into the absorbing soul-wasting struggle with worldly annoyances.

- Eliot, George
Time heals old pain, while it creates new ones.

- Proverb, Hebrew
Consider how much more you often suffer from your anger and grief, than from those very things for which you are angry and grieved.

- Antonius, Marcus
There is immunity in reading, immunity in formal society, in office routine, in the company of old friends and in the giving of officious help to strangers, but there is no sanctuary in one bed from the memory of another. The past with its anguish will break through every defense-line of custom and habit; we must sleep and therefore we must dream.

- Connolly, Cyril
All things grow with time -- except grief.

- Proverb, Jewish
For there is no greater pain, than to remember in present grief, past happinesses.

- Dante
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
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
Our trials, our sorrows, and our grieves develop us...

- Marden, Orison Swett
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
Every winter, When the great sun has turned his face away, The earth goes down into a vale of grief, And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables, Leaving her wedding-garlands to decay-- Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses.

- Charles Kingsley
Friendship improves hapiness and reduces misery, by doubting our joys and dividing our grief.

- Joseph Addison
Even his griefs are a joy long after to one that remembers all that he wrought and endured.

- Homer
She was no longer wrestling with the grief, but could sit down with it as a lasting companion and make it a sharer in her thoughts.

- Eliot, George
What though the radiance which was once so bright Be not forever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; Grief not, rather find, Strength in what remains behind, In the primal sympathy Which having been must ever be, In the soothing thoughts that spring Out of Human suffering, In the faith that looks through death In years that bring philophic mind.

- William Wordsworth
The giant trees are black and still, the tearful sky is dreary gray. All Nature is like the grief of manhood in its soft and thoughtful sternness. Shall I lend myself to its influence, and as the heaven settles down into one misty shroud of 'shrill yet silent tears,' as if veiling her shame in a cloudy mantle, shall I, too, lie down and weep? Why not? for am I not 'a part of all I see'? And even now, in fasting and mortification, am I not sorrowing for my sin and for its dreary chastisement? But shall I then despond and die?
No! Mother Earth, for then I were unworthy of thee and thy God! We may weep, Mother Earth, but we have Faith--faith which tells us that above the cloudy sky the bright clear sun is shining, and will shine. And we have Hope, Mother Earth--hope, that as bright days have been, so bright days soon shall be once more! And we have Charity, Mother Earth, and by it we can love all tender things--ay, and all rugged rocks and dreary moors, for the sake of the glow which has gilded them, and the fertility which will spring even from their sorrow. We will smile through our tears, Mother Earth, for we are not forsaken! We have still light and heat, and till we can bear the sunshine we will glory in the shade!"

- MS. 1842.
I can't be running back and forth forever between grief and high delight.

- J. D. Salinger
One often calms one's grief by recounting it.

- Corneille, Pierre
To touch a sore is to renew one's grief.

- Terence
