Grief Quotes
(20+ quotes)

Grief quotes and inspirational quotations for those facing loss are meant to offer comfort when no mere words can take the hurt away. There are stages of grief, and in the beginning,

the best comfort is just being present and listening. When the person grieving asks: “Why?” – they really don’t want pat answers. Their heart is breaking and they need a silent witness to their pain. Just be there for them. Give them the time and space they need. Don’t ask, “How can I help?” Simply do kind things. Drop over with tea and a treat, or a home cooked meal to share. Offer to make phone calls or run errands. When the time is right, a quote or two may lift their burden a tiny bit. Read through these Grief Quotes as well as our Sadness and Sorrow subject category, and Tears, too. For grief guidance and coaching contact:
