Grief Of A Child quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#1. You Learn (by Jorge Luis Borges)
The poverty of yesterday was less squalid than the poverty we purchase with our industry today.
Fortunes were smaller then as well.
(The Elderly Lady)

After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
And company doesn't mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open

With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.

After a while you learn…
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure…
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth…
And you learn and learn…

With every good-bye you learn.

{…} #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Grief Of A Child quotes by Maria Franziska Von Trapp
#2. The grief of a child is always terrible. It is bottomless, without hope. A child has no past and no future. It just lives in the present moment - wholeheartedly. If the present moment spells disaster, the child suffers it with his whole heart, his whole soul, his whole strength, his whole little being ... #Quote by Maria Franziska Von Trapp
Grief Of A Child quotes by Mark M. Bello
#3. The renaissance of Zack Blake at Renaissance Center, what a story! Maybe Mitch Albom will write a column. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Grief Of A Child quotes by Victor Hugo
#4. The child watched its disappearance--he was astounded but dreamy. His stupefaction was complicated by a sense of the dark reality of existence. It seemed as if there were experience in this dawning being. Did he, perchance, already exercise judgment? Experience coming too early constructs, sometimes, in the obscure depths of a child's mind, some dangerous balance--we know not what--in which the poor little soul weighs God.

Feeling himself innocent, he yielded. There was no complaint-THE IRREPROACHABLE DOES NOT REPROACH.
(The Man Who Laughs) #Quote by Victor Hugo
Grief Of A Child quotes by Samuel Johnson
#5. Grief is a species of idleness. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Grief Of A Child quotes by Azar Nafisi
#6. In another Nabokov novel, The Real Life of Sebastian Knight, Sebastian's brother discovers two seemingly incongruous pictures in his dead brother's library: a pretty, curly-haired child playing with a dog and a Chinese man in the act of being beheaded. The two pictures remind us of the close relation between banality and brutality. #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Grief Of A Child quotes by John Steinbeck
#7. Dear Carl:

Here, on this paper, there are only you and me, and the things that each of us tries so hard to understand, clambering up through long, long researches into the past, and thinking ponderously and seeking, and finding that for which we looked a glorified question mark.
It would be desirable to be flung, unfettered by consciousness, into the void, to sail unhindered through eternity. Please do not think that I am riding along on baseless words, covering threadbare thoughts with garrulous tapestries. I am not. It is the words which are inadequate.
You know so much and I can tell you nothing, and I don't think I can even make you feel anything you have not felt more poignantly than I, who am a mummer in a brocaded boudoir.
I wrote about miners' faces around a fire. Their bodies did not show in the light, so their yellow faces seemed like dangling masks against the night. And I wrote about little voices in the glens which were the spirits of passions and desires and dreams of dead men's minds. And Mrs. Russell said they were not real, that such things could not be, and she was not going to stand me bullying her into such claptrap nonsense. Those were not her words, it was was her meaning, and then she smiled out of the corner of her mouth as nurses do when an idiot child makes blunders. And I could not stand that, so I swore at her because I had been out all night to make my pictures. And now she is very cold, and she means to flunk me in th #Quote by John Steinbeck
Grief Of A Child quotes by Saffron Burrows
#8. When I was a child I wanted to be a petrol pump attendant. I suppose you have all sorts of thoughts as a child and at the time I figured that it was a way to avoid doing anything like going on stage. #Quote by Saffron Burrows
Grief Of A Child quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#9. When a small group of people come together to relive the Salem witch hunts, God cries. For if anything is sorrowful to God, it is evil done in his name. When you find out you were not given the truth, how will you live with yourself? #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Grief Of A Child quotes by Bruce Feiler
#10. At Abraham's burial, his two most prominent sons, rivals since before they were born, estranged since childhood, scions of rival nations, come together for the first time since they were rent apart nearly three-quarters of a century earlier. The text reports their union nearly without comment. "His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite, facing Mamre, in the field that Abraham had bought from the Hittites."

But the meaning of this moment cannot be diminished. Abraham achieves in death what he could never achieve in life: a moment of reconciliation between his two sons, a peaceful, communal, side-by-side flicker of possibility in which they are not rivals, scions, warriors, adversaries, children, Jews, Christians, or Muslims. They are brothers. They are mourners.

In a sense they are us, forever weeping for the loss of our common father, shuffling through our bitter memories, reclaiming our childlike expectations, laughing, sobbing, furious and full of dreams, wondering about our orphaned future, and demanding the answers we all crave to hear: What did you want from me, Father? What did you leave me with, Father?

And what do I do now? #Quote by Bruce Feiler
Grief Of A Child quotes by Jay Woodman
#11. You are a child of the universe
Come to choose how to live here.
You are a child of the universe
Loved beyond measure. #Quote by Jay Woodman
Grief Of A Child quotes by Lee Child
#12. London has a quarter of the whole world's supply of closed circuit cameras, all in one city. #Quote by Lee Child
Grief Of A Child quotes by Dan Savage
#13. I believe it's in the best interests of a child to be in a stable environment. #Quote by Dan Savage
Grief Of A Child quotes by Walter Jon Williams
#14. I'm willing to give my blessing to those Jedi who wish to act offensively against the Yuuzhan Vong provided that they confine their objectives to military ones.

You could have save us both a lot of grief if you'd told us that a couple of years ago For years you've been warning me about aggression leading to the dark side I didn't listen and over and over and over again reality whacked me on the side of the head Finally I decided you were right I watched someone else going to the dark and it was worse than I could have imagined You finally convinced me I've been a good little Jedi for for months now I've been telling everyone who would listen that Master Skywalker's been right all along And now you tell me that you've changed your mind

Luke Kyp #Quote by Walter Jon Williams
Grief Of A Child quotes by Kelly Corrigan
#15. But now I see there's no such thing as "a" woman, "one" woman. There are dozens inside every one of them. I probably should have figured this out sooner, but what child can see the women inside her mom, what with all the Motherness blocking out everything else? #Quote by Kelly Corrigan
Grief Of A Child quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#16. A child cannot quarrel with it's elders, as I had done-cannot give its furious feelings uncontrolled play, as I had given mine-without experiencing afterwards the pang of remorse and the chill of reaction. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Grief Of A Child quotes by Bruno Bettelheim
#17. To be told that our child's behavior is "normal" offers little solace when our feelings are badly hurt, or when we worry that hisactions are harmful at the moment or may be injurious to his future. It does not help me as a parent nor lessen my worries when my child drives carelessly, even dangerously, if I am told that this is "normal" behavior for children of his age. I'd much prefer him to deviate from the norm and be a cautious driver! #Quote by Bruno Bettelheim
Grief Of A Child quotes by Margaret Fuller
#18. There is such a rebound from parental influence that it generally seems that the child makes use of the directions given by the parent only to avoid the prescribed path. #Quote by Margaret Fuller
Grief Of A Child quotes by Mary Shelley
#19. Sir Isaac Newton is said to have avowed that he felt like a child picking up shells beside the great and unexplored ocean of truth. #Quote by Mary Shelley
Grief Of A Child quotes by Jasinda Wilder
#20. It wasn't supposed to. It was just supposed to stop you from hurting yourself." "It helps - " "No it doesn't. It just pushes it away temporarily. Just like the booze." "But I need - " "You need to let yourself feel. Feel it, own it. Then move on." "You make it sound so easy." Bitterness drips from each syllable. "It's not. It's the fucking hardest thing a person can do." I smooth a damp strand out of her face and away from my mouth. "It's the hardest fucking thing. It's why we drink and do drugs and fight. It's why I play music and build engines. #Quote by Jasinda Wilder
Grief Of A Child quotes by Oliver Sacks
#21. The hateful mood of a migraine - depressed and withdrawn, or furious and irascible - tends to melt away in the stage of lysis, to melt away with the physiological secretion. "Resolution by secretion" thus resembles a catharsis on both physiological and psychological levels, like weeping for grief. The #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Grief Of A Child quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#22. We have said that Athos loved d'Artagnan like a child, and this somber and inflexible personage felt the anxiety of a parent for the young man. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Grief Of A Child quotes by Leslie Parrish
#23. I lived in great poverty as a child and young woman, and I used to think of money and how to make money as a means to get away from the constant struggle to survive - as freedom. Now I know it isn't freedom. It's not a solution, but a new problem. It comes with its own challenges and tremendous obligations. #Quote by Leslie Parrish
Grief Of A Child quotes by Dean Koontz
#24. Listen, child - if you're at a party with a hundred people and one of them is the devil, he'll be the last one you'd suspect. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Grief Of A Child quotes by Margaret Smith
#25. Betrayal is too kind a word to describe a situation in which a father says he loves his daughter but claims he must teach her about the horrors of the world in order to make her a stronger person; a situation in which he watches or participates in rituals that make her feel like she is going to die. She experiences pain that is so intense that she cannot think; her head spins so fast she can't remember who she is or how she got there.

All she knows is pain. All she feels is desperation. She tries to cry out for help, but soon learns that no one will listen. No matter how loud she cries, she can't stop or change what is happening. No matter what she does, the pain will not stop. Her father orders her to be tortured and tells her it is for her own good. He tells her that she needs the discipline, or that she has asked for it by her misbehavior. Betrayal is too simple a word to describe the overwhelming pain, the overwhelming loneliness and isolation this child experiences.

As if the abuse during the rituals were not enough, this child experiences similar abuse at home on a daily basis. When she tries to talk about her pain, she is told that she must be crazy. "Nothing bad has happened to you;' her family tells her Each day she begins to feel more and more like she doesn't know what is real. She stops trusting her own feelings because no one else acknowledges them or hears her agony. Soon the pain becomes too great. She learns not to feel at all. This stron #Quote by Margaret Smith
Grief Of A Child quotes by Cassandra Clare
#26. You can't raise a child to believe the opposite of what you do. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Grief Of A Child quotes by Anne Rice
#27. The greatest create of power you have on earth, whether you are an angel, a spirit, a man or woman or child is to help others. #Quote by Anne Rice
Grief Of A Child quotes by Janet Fitch
#28. A month ago she would have been embarrassed at the confidence. Now she felt a surprising kinship. She was a citizen of the new land, a country she had never before visited, only a rumor, this vast unseen tract, its boundary exactly that of the whole world, taking up the space and shape of the world but completely unlike it. It had a different atmosphere, hard to breathe, and how heavy you were here, it pulled you down like the gravity on Jupiter. #Quote by Janet Fitch
Grief Of A Child quotes by Billy Childish
#29. The confusion, that one so young - me it seems, because I remember - should be so damaged, that no one looked out for me or cared. And even now, I grin and mock myself out of fear. But I hold the truth aloft, a golden torch, sacred, because no one else dares to. #Quote by Billy Childish
Grief Of A Child quotes by David Canary
#30. There's a great deal of child left in me and acting is fun. It's a make believe thing. #Quote by David Canary
Grief Of A Child quotes by Jackson Browne
#31. People know more about baseball players' contracts than they do about the policies that govern the fate of our children's lives in twenty years. Think about it. People used to say, the whole time I was growing up, 'Do you want to bring a child into this world?' That's pretty dire. #Quote by Jackson Browne
Grief Of A Child quotes by Elie Wiesel
#32. As a child I was afraid of death. I was not afraid to die, but every time I thought of death I shuddered. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
