Grief Observed quotes by C.S. Lewis
#8. Sometimes, Lord, one is tempted to say that if you wanted us to behave like the lilies of the field you might have given us an organization more like theirs. But that, I suppose, is just your...grand enterprise. To make an organism which is also a spirit; to make that terrible oxymoron, a 'spiritual animal.' To take a poor primate, a beast with nerve-endings all over it, a creature with a stomach that wants to be filled, a breeding animal that wants its mate, and say, 'Now get on with it. Become a god. #Quote by C.S. Lewis

Grief Observed quotes by C.S. Lewis
#11. I once read the sentence 'I lay awake all night with a toothache, thinking about the toothache an about lying awake.' That's true to life. Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery's shadow or reflection: the fact that you don't merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Grief Observed quotes by C.S. Lewis
#12. Knock and it shall be opened.' But does knocking mean hammering and kicking the door like a maniac? #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Grief Observed quotes by C.S. Lewis
#13. Grief ... gives life a permanently provisional feeling. It doesn't seem worth starting anything. I can't settle down. I yawn, I fidget, I smoke too much. Up till this I always had too little time. Now there is nothing but time. Almost pure time, empty successiveness. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Grief Observed quotes by Kate DiCamillo
#14. But I'm not ready to let Winn-Dixie go. #Quote by Kate DiCamillo

#15. The shadow of my sorrow. Let's see, 'tis very true. My griefs lie all within and these external manners of laments are mere shadows to the unseen grief which swells with silence in the tortured soul.
There lies the substance. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Grief Observed quotes by Michael Knight
#16. Like the long gone captains of the Confederacy, he stood watch at the edge of Dauphin Island, his old life just out of sight across the water. What he felt in those moments, pelicans skimming the chop, tankers lugging cargo to ports unknown, was not loneliness or loss, as you might expect, nor the weight of tragedy but its opposite, pure lightness, the hole left inside him by Suzette's death as big and hollow as a zeppelin and just as buoyant, as if the shape of her absence might lift him up and carrying him away. #Quote by Michael Knight
Grief Observed quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#17. You have only mastered peace when you have conquered bitterness,
mastered patience when you have conquered anger,
mastered joy when you have conquered sorrow,
mastered strength when you have conquered pain,
mastered contentment when you have conquered greed,
mastered truth when you have conquered ignorance,
mastered faith when you have conquered doubt,
mastered courage when you have conquered fear,
mastered kindness when you have conquered intolerance,
mastered humility when you have conquered ego,
mastered joy when you have conquered grief,
mastered hope when you have conquered despair,
mastered mercy when you have conquered wrath,
mastered love when you have conquered hate,
mastered life when you have conquered death,
and mastered light when you have conquered darkness. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Grief Observed quotes by Lisa J. Shultz
#18. In the process of decluttering things in my life, I was peeling off the layers of my past that no longer mattered to my present life. But as I did that shedding, memories and emotions arose. I sometimes felt sadness as I removed reminders of a failed marriage or the loss of a loved one. I grieved lost dreams and deceased people and pets. If I looked for it, I also experienced gratitude for the good times and the love that once was. Eventually, I felt lighter after I worked my way through a particular emotional zone that exposed remnants of unhealed parts of my life. #Quote by Lisa J. Shultz
Grief Observed quotes by Stephen Hawking
#19. There might be one history in which the moon is made of Roquefort cheese. But we have observed that the moon is not made of cheese, which is bad news for mice. Hence histories in which the moon is made of cheese do not contribute to the present state of our universe, though they might contribute to others. That might sound like science fiction, but it isn't. #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Grief Observed quotes by Corey Ann Haydu
#20. Sleep comes, no matter how deep the sadness cuts. It's like a gift from the universe. #Quote by Corey Ann Haydu
Grief Observed quotes by Steven Erikson
#21. While the innocent yearned to lose their innocence, those who had already done so in turn envied the innocent, and knew grief in what they had lost. Between the two, no exchange of truths was possible. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Grief Observed quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#22. I must thank you,' said Sherlock Holmes, 'for calling my attention to a case which certainly presents some features of interest. I had observed some newspaper comment at the time, but I was exceedingly preoccupied by that little affair of the Vatican cameos, and in my anxiety to oblige the Pope I lost touch with several interesting English cases. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Grief Observed quotes by Michelle Zauner
#23. My grief comes in waves and is usually triggered by something arbitrary. #Quote by Michelle Zauner
Grief Observed quotes by Isaac Watts
#24. For one drop calls another down, till we are drowned in seas of grief. #Quote by Isaac Watts
Grief Observed quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#25. A Lament
O world! O life! O time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more
Oh, never more!
Out of the day and night
A joy has taken flight;
Fresh spring, and summer, and winter hoar,
Move my faint heart with grief, but with delight
No more
Oh, never more! #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Grief Observed quotes by Susan Barbara Apollon

Grief Observed quotes by Titus Lucretius Carus
#28. Furthermore, as the body suffers the horrors of disease and the pangs of pain, so we see the mind stabbed with anguish, grief and fear. What more natural than that it should likewise have a share in death? #Quote by Titus Lucretius Carus
Grief Observed quotes by Napoleon Hill
#29. Decisions is the seedling of fear! Remember this, as you read. Indecision crystalizes into doubt, the two blend and become fear! The "blending" process often is slow. This is one reason why these three enemies are so dangerous. They germinate and grow without their presence being observed. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Grief Observed quotes by Stephen Colbert
#30. Grief will always accept the invitation to appear. It's got plenty of time for you. #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Grief Observed quotes by Alianne Donnelly
#31. Dawn.
The transformation is gruesome and brings me to my feet. My legs nearly buckle, but I stumble to the doorway, terrified for the man-beast in the destroyed room.
He screams and roars, shaking with pain, and grief, and such horrible shame. My heart bleeds, weeping for him. I fall to my knees, helpless to do anything but watch.
When it is finally, blessedly over, my Beast bows his head, looking utterly exhausted. His rumbling breaths are a comfort like nothing I've ever known.
I cannot give up on the monster of a man. For this gentle, tormented Beast, I must fight on. I must find a way to free him. #Quote by Alianne Donnelly
Grief Observed quotes by Anton Chekhov
#32. I observed that after marriage people cease to be curious. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Grief Observed quotes by Alan Bradley
#33. It is always better, and far more rewarding, I have observed, to have someone else feel sorry for you, than to do the job yourself. #Quote by Alan Bradley
Grief Observed quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#34. It has been a thousand times observed, and I must observe it once more, that the hours we pass with happy prospects in view are more pleasing than those crowned with fruition. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Grief Observed quotes by Shannon Mayer
#35. I closed my eyes, grief spilling up through me. You'd think that after all these years of hurting, of saying goodbye to her over and over in my head, that this moment would be easier. Yet it wasn't. Because for a few brief weeks, I'd thought I'd be able to have my little sister back. That I could heal up some of the gaping wounds in my soul I'd pasted over with brash words and a hard exterior. #Quote by Shannon Mayer
Grief Observed quotes by Steven Erikson
#36. The soul knows no greater anguish than to take a breath that begins with love and ends with grief. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Grief Observed quotes by Lydia Millet
#37. People were like dogs and this was why they took pity on them
dogs alone all the hours of their days and always waiting. Always waiting for company. Dogs who, for all of their devotion, knew only the love of one or two or three people from the beginning of their lives till the end
dogs who, once those one or two had dwindled and vanished from the rooms they lived in, were never to be known again.
You passed like a dog through those empty houses, you passed through empty rooms ... there was always the possibility of companionship but rarely the real event. For most of the hours of your life no one knew or observed you at all. You did what you thought you had to; you went on eating, sleeping, raising your voice at intruders out of a sense of duty. But all the while you were hoping, faithfully but with no evidence, that it turned out, in the end, you were a prince among men. #Quote by Lydia Millet
Grief Observed quotes by Akemi Dawn Bowman
#38. Some people are meant to be forever, like Lea and me. And other people come into your life for a reason - you help each other figure shit out and come to terms with complicated feelings that you can't process on your own. #Quote by Akemi Dawn Bowman
Grief Observed quotes by Roland Barthes
#39. By weeping, I want to impress someone, to bring pressure to bear upon someone...I make myself cry in order to prove to myself that my grief is not an illusion; tears are signs, not expressions. By my tears, I tell a story, I produce a myth of grief, and henceforth I adjust myself to it: I can live with it, because, by weeping, I give myself an emphatic interlocutor who receives the *truest* of messages, that of my body, not that of my speech: *Words, what are they? One tear will say more than all of them* #Quote by Roland Barthes
Grief Observed quotes by Laura Anderson Kurk
#40. We all think when we're young that we want excitement and highs and passion. To hell with ordinary."
I smiled and she chuckled. "But when we find ourselves in these adult bodies," she said. "When we wise up a little, or get slapped in the face by life, we realize we just want all things to be equal." She put the heels of her hands together near her heart like the Yoga prayer position. "And we want to understand them better. #Quote by Laura Anderson Kurk
Grief Observed quotes by Josie Litton
#41. The temptation to just crawl up onto the bank and lie there in a huddled mass of misery was almost overwhelming, but some part of her, as she observed with a certain dazed detachment, was too pigheaded to give up. No,she would plod on likely to the ends of the earth, slipping and sliding, gasping and groaning, until either the river won or she did.Had she been inclined to wager, she would have bet on the river. #Quote by Josie Litton
Grief Observed quotes by Sherman Alexie
#42. I'm honored by your concern. I would like
To gather all of the books that contain
The words "mother" and "grief," set them aflame,
And dance as they burn. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Grief Observed quotes by Lily James
#43. Playing a Disney princess is the most amazing, unbelievable thing and on the other, it's completely terrifying. I would say it's a cocktail of every sort of emotion. Princesses are great role models, they teach you about grief loss and have big hearts. #Quote by Lily James
Grief Observed quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#44. A mind that is free of any distortion is really the true religious mind, not a mind that goes to the temple, not a mind that reads the sacred books, not a mind that repeats rituals, however beautiful they may be, not a mind that is filled with images, imposed upon it or self-created.

Living is not separate from learning, and in this there is great beauty. For, after all, love is that. Love is compassion, passion, passion for everything. When there is love, there is no observer, there is no duality: the 'you' who love 'me' and the 'I' who love 'you'. There is only love, though it may be loving one or the thousand; there is only love.

When there is love, then you can do no wrong, do what you will. But without love we are trying to do everything - going to the moon, the marvelous scientific discoveries - and therefore everything goes wrong. Love can only come when there is no observer. That means, when the mind is not divided in itself as the one observing and the observed, only then there is that quality of love. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Grief Observed quotes by Adrienne Rich
#45. Behind all art is an element of desire ... Love of life, of existence, love of another human being, love of human beings is in some way behind all art - even the most angry, even the darkest, even the most grief-stricken, and even the most embittered art has that element somewhere behind it. Because how could you be so despairing, so embittered, if you had not had something you loved that you lost? #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Grief Observed quotes by Mark Slouka
#46. It's a race between your foolishness and your allotted days. Good luck. #Quote by Mark Slouka
Grief Observed quotes by C.S. Lewis
#47. God can make good use of all that happens, but the loss is real. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Grief Observed quotes by Embee
#48. I know you're hurting, Taylor, but grief is clouding your judgement and you need to stay focused. If you attack her now, you won't win. You know she has the advantage, Taylor. I've taught you this. Please, we just need to get out of here. #Quote by Embee
