I say “some more” because we also have quotes about grief and loss here and a few more here. Why you might ask, would we create a third article about grief quotes? I promise you; we have a good reason that combines our love for quotes with our passion for exploring grief through photography.
In January, we hosted a Photo-a-Day Grief Photo Challenge. For this challenge, we provided a prompt a day for 25 days, and we challenged people to take a photo inspired by this prompt.
Anyway, to provide participants with some extra inspiration each day, we posted the prompt with a quote, usually from authors and other quotable notables, but sometimes from What’s Your Grief articles. At the end of the month, we had collected quite a few quotes related to life after loss that we wanted to share with you. Because who doesn’t love a good quote?
In all seriousness, I think quotes about grief are especially helpful. Grief often has people at a loss for words, and when we can’t explain, express, or communicate how we feel about something, it makes us feel alone.
But then we stumble on a relatable grief quote and BAM, we realize we’re not the only one. Grief is universal, and it’s timeless. It touches everyone, from Shakespeare to the writers behind ‘This is Us’. Would we prefer loss not be so ubiquitous? Of course, but it is, and knowing others can relate can help us to feel a little less strange and slightly more seen.
We’d love to know your favorite grief quote. Share it in the comments below.
