Only by joy and sorrow does a person know anything about themselves and their destiny. They learn what to do and what to avoid.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The dew of compassion is a tear.
Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality.
Our trials, our sorrows, and our grieves develop us.
Orison Swett Marden
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.
Corrie Ten Boom
Grief can't be shared. Everyone carries it alone. His own burden in his own way.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
It is a great consolation for me to remember that the Lord, to whom I had drawn near in humble and child-like faith, has suffered and died for me, and that He will look on me in love and compassion.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
I say to people who care for people who are dying, if you really love that person and want to help them, be with them when their end comes close. Sit with them - you don't even have to talk. You don't have to do anything but really be there with them.
Pity may represent little more than the impersonal concern which prompts the mailing of a check, but true sympathy is the personal concern which demands the giving of one's soul.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Grief is a normal and natural response to loss. It is originally an unlearned feeling process. Keeping grief inside increases your pain.
From the end spring new beginnings.
Pliny the Elder
Not without hope we suffer and we mourn.
Come away, O human child: To the waters and the wild with a fairy, hand in hand, For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.
William Butler Yeats
If our hearts are ready for anything, we can open to our inevitable losses, and to the depths of our sorrow. We can grieve our lost loves, our lost youth, our lost health, our lost capacities. This is part of our humanness, part of the expression of our love for life.
I think loss of loved ones is the hardest blow in life.
Grief changes shape, but it never ends.
Let no one weep for me, or celebrate my funeral with mourning; for I still live, as I pass to and fro through the mouths of men.
People who drink to drown their sorrow should be told that sorrow knows how to swim.
Sorrow is so easy to express and yet so hard to tell.
At a family's most difficult time, I want to make sure at a minimum that they have the very basic of comforts: the ability to grieve their loss privately and the knowledge that their country is grateful for their loved one's sacrifice and service.
Almost all of our sorrows spring out of our relations with other people.
A sorrow's crown of sorrow is remembering happier times.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Sorrow is a fruit. God does not make it grow on limbs too weak to bear it.
I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
A sympathetic friend can be quite as dear as a brother.
