We think cag'd birds sing, when indeed they cry. John Webster The White Devil
"Grief is the agony of an instant; the indulgence of Grief the blunder of a life." Benjamin Disraeli Vivian Grey
There is no dealing with great sorrow as if it were under the control of our wills. It is a terrible phenomenon, whose laws we must study, and to whose conditions we must submit, if we would mitigate it. J. Sheridan Le Fanu Uncle Silas
"Grief makes one hour ten." William Shakespeare King Richard II
"Grief fills the room up of my absent child,
Lies in his bed, walks up and down with me."
William Shakespeare King John
"Moderate lamentation is the right of the dead: excessive grief the enemy to the living." William Shakespeare All's Well That Ends Well
"What's gone and what's past help
Should be past grief."
William Shakespeare The Winter's Tale
Joy and grief were mingled in the cup; but there were no bitter tears: for even grief itself arose so softened, and clothed in such sweet and tender recollections, that it became a solemn pleasure, and lost all character of pain. Charles Dickens Oliver Twist
"The persons on whom I have bestowed my dearest love, lie deep in their graves; but, although the happiness and delight of my life lie buried there too, I have not made a coffin of my heart, and sealed it up, forever, on my best affections. Deep affliction has but strengthened and refined them." Charles Dickens Oliver Twist
Even grief sobbed itself out in time; only Time was good for sorrow--Time who saw the passing of each mood, each emotion in turn; Time the layer-to-rest. John Galsworthy The Forsyte Saga
