Grief quotes
Grief
'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
The only thing grief as taught me is to know how shallow it is.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
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
For men who had easily endured hardship, danger and difficult uncertainty, leisure and riches, though in some ways desirable, proved burdensome and a source of grief.

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

- Proverb, Hebrew
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
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
Only to have a grief equal to all these tears!

- Rich, Adrienne
Well has it been said that there is no grief like the grief which does not speak.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Grief, and an estate, is joy understood,

- Nunn, Gregory
Tearless grief bleeds inwardly.

- Bovee, Christian Nevell
For there is no greater pain, than to remember in present grief, past happinesses.

- Dante
Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery's shadow or reflection: the fact that you don't merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief.

- Lewis, C. S.
It seems the misfortune of one can plow a deeper furrow in the heart than the misfortune of millions.

- Kirby Larson
Friendship improves hapiness and reduces misery, by doubting our joys and dividing our grief.

- Joseph Addison
Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future.

- Sivananda, Sri Swami
Even his griefs are a joy long after to one that remembers all that he wrought and endured.

- Homer
The only cure for grief is action.

- George Henry Lewes
Strictly speaking, there is but one real evil: I mean acute pain. All other complaints are so considerably diminished by time that it is plain the grief is owing to our passion, since the sensation of it vanishes when that is over.

- Montagu, Lady Mary Wortley
