grief

Grief quotes
Grief
When we suffer anguish we return to early childhood because that is the period in which we first learnt to suffer the experience of total loss. It was more than that. It was the period in which we suffered more total losses than in all the rest of our life put together.

- Berger, John
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.

- Twain, Mark
In much wisdom is much grief; and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

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

- Proverb, Hebrew
No matter how deep and dark your pit, how dank your shroud, their heads are heroically unbloody and unbowed.

- Nash, Ogden
If you would have me weep, you must first of all feel grief yourself.

- Horace
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
Who originated that most exquisite of inquisitions, the condolence system?

- Phelps, Elizabeth Stuart
Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help us in our marching onward.

- Henry Ford
Grief teaches the steadiest minds to waver.

- Sophocles
O loss of sight, of thee I most complain! Blind among enemies, O worse than chains, dungeon or beggary, or decrepit age! Light, the prime work of God, to me is extinct, and all her various objects of delight annulled, which might in part my grief have eased. Inferior to the vilest now become of man or worm; the vilest here excel me, they creep, yet see; I, dark in light, exposed to daily fraud, contempt, abuse and wrong, within doors, or without, still as a fool, in power of others, never in my own; scarce half I seem to live, dead more than half.

- Milton, John
Thus have the gods spun the thread for wretched mortals: that they live in grief while they themselves are without cares; for two jars stand on the floor of Zeus of the gifts which he gives, one of evils and another of blessings.

- Homer
Employment is the surest antidote to sorrow.

- Ann Radcliffe
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
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.
If we could not forget, we would never be free from grief.

- Bahya Ibn Paquda
Time takes away the grief of men.

- Erasmus, Desiderius
You shall be free indeed when your days are not without a care nor your nights without a want and a grief, But rather when these things girdle your life and yet you rise above them naked and unbound.

- Kahlil Gibran
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
