Grief quotes
Grief
1.

The human heart dares not stay away too long from that which hurt it most. There is a return journey to anguish that few of us are released from making.

- Smith, Lillian
2.

LAUREATE, adj. Crowned with leaves of the laurel. In England the Poet Laureate is an officer of the sovereign's court, acting as dancing skeleton at every royal feast and singing-mute at every royal funeral. Of all incumbents of that high office, Robert Southey had the most notable knack at drugging the Samson of public joy and cutting his hair to the quick; and he had an artistic color-sense which enabled him so to blacken a public grief as to give it the aspect of a national crime.

- Ambrose Bierce
3.

Grief is the agony of an instant. The indulgence of grief the blunder of a life.

- Disraeli, Benjamin
4.

Sorrow is the great idealizer.

- Lowell, James Russell
5.

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
6.

One often calms one's grief by recounting it.

- Corneille, Pierre
7.

Grief teaches the steadiest minds to waver.

- Sophocles
8.

Tears are the silent language of grief.

- Voltaire
9.

Some of your grief you have cured, and lived to survive; but what torments of pain have you endured that haven't as yet arrived.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
10.

Hold no man responsible for what he says in his grief.

- The Talmud
11.

My heart burnt within me with indignation and grief; we could think of nothing else. All night long we had only snatches of sleep, waking up perpetually to the sense of a great shock and grief. Every one is feeling the same. I never knew so universal a feeling.

- Gaskell, Elizabeth
12.

When you describe the miserable and unfortunate, and want to make the reader feel pity, try to be somewhat colder—that seems to give a kind of background to another’s grief, against which it stands out more clearly. Whereas in your story the characters cry and you sigh. Yes, be more cold. . . . the more objective you are, the stronger will be the impression you make.

- Anton Chekhov
13.

We feel at first as if some opportunities of kindness and sympathy were lost, but learn afterward that any pure grief is ample recompense for all. That is, if we are faithful; -- for a spent grief is but sympathy with the soul that disposes events, and is as natural as the resin of Arabian trees. -- Only nature has a right to grieve perpetually, for she only is innocent. Soon the ice will melt, and the blackbirds sing along the river which he frequented, as pleasantly as ever. The same everlasting serenity will appear in this face of God, and we will not be sorrowful, if he is not.

- Thoreau, Henry David
14.

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
15.

What importance can we attach to the things of this world? Friendship? It disappears when the one who is liked comes to grief, or the one who likes becomes powerful. Love? it is deceived, fleeting, or guilty. Fame? You share it with mediocrity or crime. Fortune? Could that frivolity be counted a blessing? All that remains are those so-called happy days that flow past unnoticed in the obscurity of domestic cares, leaving man with the desire neither to lose his life nor to begin it over.

- Chateaubriand
16.

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
17.

Grief is the agony of an instant, the indulgence of grief the blunder of a life.

- Benjamin Disraeli
18.

ERUDITION, n. Dust shaken out of a book into an empty skull. So wide his erudition's mighty span, He knew Creation's origin and plan And only came by accident to grief -- He thought, poor man,'twas right to be a thief. Romach Pute

- Ambrose Bierce
19.

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
20.

In youth one has tears without grief, in old age grief without tears.

- Paul, Jean
