Quotes about Grief

Grief is the price we pay for love.

- C. S. Lewis

The only cure for grief is action.

Grief is a normal and natural response to loss.
It is originally an unlearned feeling process.
Keeping grief inside increases your pain.
- Anne Grant

When we come into the present, we begin to feel the life around us again,
but we also encounter whatever we have been avoiding.
We must have the courage to face whatever is present --
our pain, our desires, our grief, our loss, our secret hopes our love --
everything that moves us most deeply.
- Jack Kornfield

There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.
They are messengers of overwhelming grief ...
and unspeakable love.

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

What we have once enjoyed we can never lose.
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.
- Helen Keller

And you would accept the seasons of your heart
just as you have always accepted that seasons pass over your fields
and you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.
- Khalil Gibran

Tears and laughter cleanse the heart.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When someone you love dies,
you don't lose them all at once.
You lose them in pieces over time
- the movie Simon Birch

We must accept finite disappointment,
but never lose infinite hope.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

It is much more painful to have lost
something you thought you had,
than never to have had it at all.
If feels as if our trust was dashed.
We are disappointed and we are angry;
but not quite sure at who to direct our anger.
Someone, perhaps "the system," perhaps God,
should have done better.
Most of all we are angry at ourselves -
even though we did our best -
and we are afraid.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
- George S. Patton

I have lost my seven best friends,
which is to say that God has had mercy on me
seven times without realizing it.
He lent a friendship, took it from me, and sent me another.
- Jean Cocteau

Happiness is a choice.
You grieve, you stomp your feet,
you pick ourself up and choose to be happy.
- Lucy Lawless

When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be
clearer in his absence,
as the mountain to the climber
is clearer from the plain.
- Khalil Gibran

The secret of health for both mind and body
is not to mourn for the past,
nor to worry about the future,
but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.

Do not mourn the dead, but comfort the living.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

He is a wise man who does not grieve
for the things which he has not,
but rejoices for those which he has.

When life offers you a dream so far
beyond any of your expectations,
it's not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.
- Bella, from Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer

For those of true faith, death is not a time to mourn,
but a time to celebrate returning to the Creator.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
