Quotes About Grief
Quotes about Grief
It is a response to some kind of loss of a person or thing that we get attached to or form a bond with. Grief is generally an emotional feeling but has many other faces or dimensions making it a multi-faceted emotion. It can also be a physical, cognitive, behavioural, philosophical or social response to a loss. Christopher Morley had once remarked, “Beauty is ever to the lonely mind a shadow fleeting; she is never plain. She is a visitor who leaves behind the gift of grief, the souvenir of pain.”

There are several trajectories of grief. Some adults, who experience a loss, do not experience any grief. Some others overcome grief with a mechanism called “resilience”, according to the psychologists. While 10-15 % of people deal with grief intensely. John Woolman had remarked, “By the breaking in of enraged merciless armies, flourishing countries have been laid waste, great numbers of people have perished in a short time, and many more have been pressed with poverty and grief.”
