Crying

To weep is to make less the depth of grief.
William Shakespeare

Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.

I remember, after my grandfather’s death, seeing Dad in the hall with tears streaming down his face. I don’t think I had ever seen him cry before. I’m glad I did see him. It helped me know that it was okay for men to cry.
Fred Rogers

Gail Devers, on battling Grave’s Disease

Grief drives men into the habits of serious reflection, sharpens the understanding and softens the heart.
John Adams

I found this out about a tragedy: it either leaves you diminished or enhanced. If you face up to it, if you make the best of it, you’re a better person. You appreciate love. You appreciate life. You appreciate all of the things of being with people.
