Monday Quotes for Halloween

Halloween, which was "All Hallows Eve" was designed to revere those who have died.

In honor of this day, we shall have some quotes on grief and loss:

"Grief, like the ocean, comes in waves, only to recede and come yet again--but with healing. Memories wash ashore and are bathed by the golden sun. Grab hold of those memories and let them fill the emptiness." --Author Unknown

"She was no longer wrestling with the grief, but could sit down with it as a lasting companion and make it a sharer in her thoughts." -- George Eliot

"One often calms one's grief by recounting it." -- Pierre Corneille

"The human heart dares not stay away too long from that which hurt it most. There is a return journey to anguish that few of us are released from making." -- Lillian Smith

"When the heart grieves over what is has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left." -- Sufi Epigram
