The only cure for grief is action. ~George Henry Lewes~ Waste not fresh tears over old grief. ~Euripides~ While grief is fresh, every attempt to divert only irritates. You must wait until it is digested, and then amusement will dissipate the remains of it. ~Samuel Johnson~ Grief teaches the steadiest of minds to waver. ~Sophocles~ There is no feeling except the extremes of fear and grief, that does not find relief in music. ~Charles Kingsley~ Hold no man responsible for what he says in grief. ~Talmud~ No one feels another's grief, no one understands another's joy. People imagine they can reach one another. In reality they only pass each other by. ~Franz Schubert~ Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help us in our marching onward. ~Henry Ford~
