You are going to lose people in your life.
And I realize that no matter how much you spent with them,
or how much you appreciated them and told them so,
it will never seem like it was enough.
Harry, suffering like this proves you are still a man! This pain is part of being human.Humanity, BreakupAlbus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Hope is like a shard of glass. Tread on it, and you'll end up wincing with every step. The best policy is to tweezer it out. Sure, it will hurt like billy-o and the wound will take a while to heal, but after that you can walk again.Hope, BreakupSebastian Fitzek in Therapy

I love life. Yeah, I'm sad, but at the same time, I'm really happy that something could make me feel that sad. It's like... it makes me feel alive, you know. It makes me feel human. The only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt something really good before. So I have to take the bad with the good. So I guess what I'm feeling is like a beautiful sadness.Life, BreakupButters Stotch in South Park, Season 7 Episode 14

Weeping willow with your tears running down, why do you always weep and frown? Is it because he left you one day? is it because he could not stay? On your branches he would swing, do you long for the happiness that day would bring? He found shelter in your shade. You thought his laughter would never fade. Weeping willow, stop your tears. There is something to calm you fears. You think death has ripped you forever apart. But I know he'll always be in your heart.Desire, DeathMy Girl, by Vada

Sad things happen. They do. But we don't need to live sad forever.Mattie Stepanek
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep,
I am a thousands winds that blow,
I am the diamond glint on snow,
I am the sunnlight in ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I do not die.
Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.WorriesHenry Wadsworth Longfellow
If I knew that today would be the last time I'd see you, I would hug you tight and pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul.
If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door, I'd embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more.
If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice, I'd take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again.
If I knew this is the last time I see you, I'd tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already.
I'm crying because out there he's gone, but he's not gone inside me.Missing SomeoneCalvin and Hobbes, by Calvin
Grief is the price we pay for love.Queen Elizabeth II
Grief is an amputation, but hope is incurable haemophilia: you bleed and bleed and bleed.HopeDavid Mitchell in Slade House
They say the first year after a major loss is the hardest. That’s an understatement; loss is its own brand of insanity and no relief from it. There are no shortcuts and the only way through grief is through it. You just have to get up every day and wait to go to bed every night, then wake up and do it all over again.LossKa Hancock in Dancing on Broken Glass
A thousand deaths, and you recover from each. Not so the mind, the mind is much more fragile. Its scars run deep and do not heal. The brain is encased in a hard bone shell, difficult to breach, but with no defense against that which eats at it from within.Mind & ApprehensionPlanescape Torment, by Ravel
'til I see you smile
just for me
'til I hear you breathe
calm and free
and until you sleep
I won't let you grieve
How will I find this heart of mine?
Taken from me for some time
Here I stand in my pool of tears
Here I'll stay throughout the years
