Death is but a transition from this life to another existence where there is no more pain and anguish. All the bitterness and disagreements will vanish, and the only thing that lives forever is love.— Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Almighty Death Grieving quotations
Grief never ends, but it changes. It is a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness nor a lack of faith: it is the price of love.
The reality is that you will grieve forever.
You will not "get over" the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.
If you know someone who has lost a child, and you're afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died-you're not reminding them. They didn't forget they died. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that is a great gift.
When those you love die, the best you can do is honor their spirit for as long as you live. You make a commitment that you're going to take whatever lesson that person or animal was trying to teach you, and you make it true in your own life... It's a positive way to keep their spirit alive in the world, by keeping it alive in yourself.

It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve.
They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies.

Why bad things happen to good people
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.
Grief is itself a medicine.
I am I and you are you, whatever we were to each other that we still are.
Life is eternal; and love is immortal; and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
Death is just a change in lifestyles.
Grieve not; though the journey of life be bitter, and the end unseen, there is no road which does not lead to an end.
I think death is a tremendous adventure- a gateway into a new life, in which you have further powers, deeper joys, and wonderful horizons.
I am quite confident that the most important part of a human being is not his physical body but his nonphysical essence, which some people call soul and others, personality... The nonphysical part cannot die and cannot decay because it's not physical.
To spare oneself from grief at all cost can be achieved only at the price of total detachment, which excludes the ability to experience happiness

We need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us.
Death cannot kill what never dies.
When you are sorrowful, look again.
To suppress the grief, the pain, is to condemn oneself to a living death.
Living fully means feeling fully; it means becoming completely one with what you are experiencing and not holding it at arm's length.
The body is only a garment. How many times you have changed your clothing in this life, yet because of this you would not say that you have changed. Similarly, when you give up this bodily dress at death you do not change. You are just the same, an immortal soul, a child of God.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain but for the heart to conquer it.
And can it be that in a world so full and busy the loss of one creature makes a void so wide and deep that nothing but the width and depth of eternity can fill it up!
