Letter "G" » Grief

«Death is as casual-and often as unexpected-as birth. It is as difficult to define grief as joy. Each is finite. Each will fade.»
«Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealously. The shadow of greed, that is.»
«But mortal bliss will never come sincere; Pleasure may lead, but grief blow brings up the rear»
«Even his griefs are a joy, long after, to one that remembers all that he wrought and endured»
«A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him»
«All things grow with time - except grief.»
«Compare your griefs with other men's and they will seem less»
«Every one can master a grief but he that has it»
«Each substance of a grief hath twenty shadows»
