But, Madam, let your grief be laid aside,And let the fountain of your tears be dry'd,In vain they flow to wet the dusty plain,Your sighs are wafted to the skies in vain,Your pains they witness, but they can no more,While Death reigns tyrant o'er this mortal shore.
They moved so gently, that their footsteps made no noise; but there were sobs from among the group, and sounds of grief and mourning.charles dickens

When I visited concentration camps, I was more interested in how people responded to the camps than in the actual places. I watched kids picnicking on the ovens and other people stricken with grief.Rachel Whiteread
Hidden away amongst Aschenbach’s writing was a passage directly asserting that nearly all the great things that exist owe their existence to a defiant despite: it is despite grief and anguish, despite poverty, loneliness, bodily weakness, vice and passion and a thousand inhibitions, that they have come into being at all. But this was more than an observation, it was an experience, it was positively the formula of his life and his fame, the key to his work.thomas mann
Alone! that worn-out word, So idly spoken, and so coldly heard; Yet all that poets sing, and grief hath known, Of hope laid waste, knells in that word ALONE!Lytton
But, as old Swedish legends say, Of all the birds upon that day, The swallow felt the deepest grief, And longed to give her Lord relief, And chirped when any near would come, "Hugswala swala swal honom!" Meaning, as they who tell it deem, Oh, cool, oh, cool and comfort Him!charles godfrey leland
One inch of joy surmounts of grief a span, because to laugh is proper to the man.
Winter is come and gone, but grief returns with the revolving year.Percy Bysshe Shelley
I've gone through the grief of losing family, so I understand it well. My heart breaks to think about how you must feel. Anyone responsible for the accident and criminally at fault will be sternly punished.
Toil on, O weary, way-worn sufferer! bear up, O crushed and sorrowing heart! thy bed of pain, thy silent heroism, thy patient Christian walk, thy resignation, and thy grief, glow all unconsciously to thee with winning radiance, and fill the world with life's sweetest fragrance as bruised flowers with perfume do the air.
There is no logic to grief.
Our best destiny, as planetary cohabitants, is the development of what has been called "species consciousness" something over and above nationalisms, blocs, religions, ethnicities. During this week of incredulous misery, I have been trying to apply such a consciousness, and such a sensibility. Thinking of the victims, the perpetrators, and the near future, I felt species grief, then species shame, then species fear.
How stupid it was for the king to tear out his hair in grief, as if baldness were a cure for sorrow.
It is typical of the contradictions that break women's hearts that when they avail themselves of their fragile right to abortion they often, even usually, went with grief and humiliation to carry out a painful duty that was presented to them as a privilege. Abortion is the latest in a long line of non-choices that begin at the very beginning with the time and the place and the manner of lovemaking.
To this sad shrine, whoe'er thou art! draw near! Here lies the friend most lov'd, the son most dear; Who ne'er knew joy but friendship might divide, Or gave his father grief but when he died.
What’s gone, and what’s past help, Should be past grief.
Before the beginning of years There came to the making of man Time with a gift of tears, grief with a glass that ran.algernon charles swinburne
grief teaches the steadiest minds to waver.
Love, Hope, and Joy, fair pleasure's smiling train, Hate, Fear, and grief, the family of pain, These mix'd with art, and to due bounds confin'd Make and maintain the balance of the mind.Alexander Pope
