reflections: quotes to get you through the days; part 8

1) It's so curious: one can resist tears and 'behave' very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer... and everything collapses.
- Colette

2) Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break.
- William Shakespeare

3) Tears are the silent language of grief.
- Voltaire

4) One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only strength which can overcome adversity.
-Albert Schweitzer

5) Grief is the price we pay for love.
- Elizabeth II
