When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.  ~Kahlil Gibran

Sorrow you can hold, however desolating, if nobody speaks to you.  If they speak, you break down.  ~Bede Jarrett

Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o’er-fraught heart and bids it break.  ~William Shakespeare

Man, when he does not grieve, hardly exists.  ~Antonio PorchiaVoces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin

There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.  ~Author Unknown

The deep pain that is felt at the death of every friendly soul arises from the feeling that there is in every individual something which is inexpressible, peculiar to him alone, and is, therefore, absolutely and irretrievably lost.  ~Arthur Schopenhauer

Loss is nothing else but change, and change is Nature’s delight.  ~Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

In the night of death, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing.  ~Robert Ingersoll
