And with the morn those angel faces smile Which I have loved long since and lost awhile. (Quote by - John Henry Newman)

When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread: / So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave thee: and pestilence and blood shall pass through thee; and I will bring the sword upon thee. I the LORD have spoken it. (Quote by - Bible)

Good-night! good-night! as we so oft have said Beneath this roof at midnight, in the days That are no more, and shall no more return.

Widows are divided into two classes -- the bereaved and relieved. (Quote by - Victor Robinson)

These are people who felt trapped in a bad marriage or onerous care-giving duties and widowhood offered relief and escape.

He spake well who said that graves are the footprints of angels. (Quote by - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

A man's house burns down. The smoking wreckage represents only a ruined home that was dear through years of use and pleasant associations. By and by, as the days and weeks go on, first he misses this, then that, then the other thing. And when he casts about for it he finds that it was in that house. Always it is an essential -- there was but one of its kind. It cannot be replaced. It was in that house. It is irrevocably lost. It will be years before the tale of lost essentials is complete, and not till then can he truly know the magnitude of his disaster. (Quote by - Mark Twain)

Bereavement is a darkness impenetrable to the imagination of the unbereaved. (Quote by - Iris Murdoch)

We have to believe that even the briefest of human connections can heal. Otherwise, life is unbearable. (Quote by - Agate Nesaule)

The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God. (Quote by - Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994)

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. (Quote by - Kahlil Gibran)

Oh heart, if one should say to you that the soul perishes like the body, answer that the flower withers, but the seed remains. (Quote by - Kahlil Gibran)

To live in hearts we leave behind Is not to die. (Quote by - Thomas Campbell)

For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. (Quote by - William Penn)

One cannot be deeply responsive to the world without being saddened very often. (Quote by - Erich Fromm)

Therefore deliver up their children to the famine, and pour out their blood by the force of the sword; and let their wives be bereaved of their children, and be widows; and let their men be put to death; let their young men be slain by the sword in battle. (Quote by - Bible)

Parting is all we know of heaven and all we need of hell. (Quote by - Emily Dickinson)

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. (Quote by - Kahlil Gibran)

Therefore I will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe them: / I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them. (Quote by - Bible)

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. (Quote by - Henri Nouwen)
