A good quote serves many purposes. A quote helps us put our own thoughts and feelings into perspective, it allows us to use the words of others to communicate or to convey a message, and it helps us to feel a sense of commonality when we find our feelings, experiences, and observations match those of another.
Although we love a good grief quote, Litsa and I were slow to join in on the quote-pic phenomenon. The Internet just seemed plastered with inspirational platitudes pasted on pictures of sunsets and rainbows. It all seemed so trite and reductive we decided not to add to the noise. Then we got over ourselves.
Here are 64 (Shhh! There are really 58) quotes about grief, coping and life after loss. In going through these I realized it’s hard to tell how a handful of these would be considered grief-related; I guess you’ll just have to take our word for it. Feel free to steal and share any of these images.
