It is the will of God and Nature that these mortal bodies be laid aside, when the soul is to enter into real life; 'tis rather an embrio state, a preparation for living; a man is not completely born until he be dead: Why then should we grieve that a new child is born among the immortals?
Benjamin Franklin
Bereavement Quotes
Bereavement Quotes
If, as I can’t help suspecting, the dead also feel the pains of separation (and this may be one of their purgatorial sufferings), then for both lovers, and for all pairs of lovers without exception, bereavement is a universal and integral part of our experience of love.
C.S. Lewis

Sometimes, there was no getting over it. Sometimes, you lived with the empty place inside of you until you imploded on it, loss as singularity, or until the empty place expanded and hollowed out the rest of you so thoroughly you became the walking dead, a ghost in your own life.
Caitlin Kittredge

Losing people you love affects you. It is buried inside of you and becomes this big, deep hole of ache. It doesn't magically go away, even when you stop officially mourning.
Carrie Jones

Bereavement is the sharpest challenge to our trust in God; if faith can overcome this, there is no mountain which it cannot remove.
Dean Inge

Deep in earth my love is lying
And I must weep alone.
Edgar Allan Poe

The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.
Eileen Elias Freeman

Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality.
Emily Dickinson

You don't know who is important to you until you actually lose them.
Gandhi

A human life is a story told by God.
Hans Christian Andersen

The weird, weird thing about devastating loss is that life actually goes on. When you're faced with a tragedy, a loss so huge that you have no idea how you can live through it, somehow, the world keeps turning, the seconds keep ticking.
James Patterson

How could you go about choosing something that would hold the half of your heart you had to bury?
Jodi Picoult

And with the morn those angel faces smileWhich I have loved long since and lost awhile.
John Henry Newman

While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.
John Taylor

I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable.
Joseph Addison

If you have ever lost a loved one, then you know exactly how it feels. And if you have not, then you cannot possibly imagine it.
Lemony Snicket

For as long as the world spins and the earth is green with new wood, she will lie in this box and not in my arms.
Lurlene McDaniel

It’s okay to Laugh: Laughter is not a sign of “less” grief. Laughter is not a sign of “less” love. It’s a sign that many of our thoughts and memories are happy ones. It’s a sign that we know our dear one would have us laugh. It’s okay to laugh.
Patricia Lufty Nevitt

Thou has turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee forever.
Psalm

Farewell is said by the living, in life, every day. It is said with love and friendship, with the affirmation that the memories are lasting if the flesh is not.
R.A. Salvatore

Life is eternal, and love is immortal,and death is only a horizon;and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
Rossiter Worthington Raymond

Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.
Rumi

Grief can be a burden, but also an anchor. You get used to the weight, how it holds you in place.
Sarah Dessen

And we ourselves shall be loved for a while and forgotten. But the love will have been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. Even memory is not necessary for love. There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.
Thorton Wilder

He spake well who said that graves are the footprints of angels.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o-er wrought heart and bids it break.
William Shakespeare

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Anonymous

Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.
