Losing a loved one is the hardest time of one’s life. Let these death quotes, grief quotes and sympathy quotes alleviate your pain and stress.
I often visits Yahoo Answers and read situations where people lost their loved one and asking for quotes to ease their grief.
Yes, indeed. No one could ever accept the fact that the one that is so close to them is no longer here anymore. It’s just too overwhelming and difficult to deal with a sudden death.
So don’t hide your sadness. Lay your head on your family or friend’s shoulder (or mine) and let the tears flow. Read the sympathy quotes here or share them with the one you know who suffered from a loss.
Remember that your loved one will always wish for your happiness. So be strong, take care of yourself and be grateful for all the nice memories you two had.
Read on for more death quotes and sympathy quotes.
- DEATH QUOTES -
Death ends a life, not a relationship.
Death is the condition of higher and more fruitful life.
E. H. Chapin
God's finger touched him, and he slept.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.
There is no death. Only a change of worlds.
Death is nothing else but going home to God, the bond of love will be unbroken for all eternity.
Die happily and look forward to
taking up a new and better form. Like the sun, only when you set in the
west can you rise in the east.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
The death of someone we know always reminds us that we are still alive - perhaps for some purpose which we ought to re-examine.
He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us, more potent, nay, more present than the living man.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
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
Heaven is a place nearby, so there’s no need to say good bye.
- DEATH QUOTES * GRIEF QUOTES -
Grief is the price we pay for love
Grief is itself a medicine.
Time is a physician that heals every grief.
Sadness flies away on the wings of time.
Jean de La Fontaine
Pain is part of being alive, and we
need to learn that. Pain does not last forever, nor is it necessarily
unbearable, and we need to be taught that.
Learn to get in touch with silence
within yourself, and know that everything in this life has purpose.
There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given
to us to learn from.
As you comprehend this profound loss, let yourself cry knowing each tear is a note of love rising to the heavens.
I would say to those who mourn...
look upon each day that comes as a challenge, as a test of courage. The
pain will come in waves, some days worse than others, for no apparent
reason. Accept the pain. Do not suppress it. Never attempt to hide
Daphne du Maurier
Grief is a healthy emotion, and
it's healthy to embrace it. By accepting loss, we clarify our values and
the meaning of our lives.
We are healed of a suffering only by expressing it to the full.
You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.
The world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.
Sorrow is the mere rust of the soul. Activity will cleanse and brighten it.
Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine.
St. Thomas Aquinas
- DEATH QUOTES * SYMPATHY QUOTES -
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.
People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Some people think it's holding on that makes one strong- sometimes it's letting go.
You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.
The persons on whom I have bestowed
my dearest love, lie deep in their graves; but, although the happiness
and delight of my life lie buried there too, I have not made a coffin of
my heart, and sealed it up, forever, on my best affections. Deep
affliction has but strengthened and refined them.
Oh, my friend, it's not what they take away from you that counts. It's what you do with what you have left.
I don't think of all the misery, but of all the beauty that still remains.
The journey is the reward.
However long the night, the dawn will break.
If the future seems overwhelming, remember that it comes one moment at a time.
Beth Mende Conny
Prayer has comforted us in sorrow and will help strengthen us for the journey ahead.
George W. Bush
The greatest tribute to the dead is not grief but gratitude.
Perhaps they are not stars, but
rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through
and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.
While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.
If the people we love are stolen
from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them.
Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever.
They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies.
I know for certain that we never
lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in
every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible
imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have
been enriched by having shared their love.
What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes part of us.
Think of him still as the same, I say, He is not dead, he is just - away.
James Whitcomb Riley
