Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break.
Sorrow makes us all children again - destroys all differences of intellect. The wisest know nothing.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.
~From television show The Wonder Years
When a person is born we rejoice, and when they're married we jubilate, but when they die we try to pretend nothing has happened.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
In order to emerge from a state of loss and grief, and begin a new life, people need not so much a therapist as friends who are prepared to walk with them.
