Favorite Quotes

Quote by Rabbi Joshua Liebman in his book, "Peace Mind" writes "The melody that the loved one played upon the piano of your life will never be played quite that way again, but we must not close the keyboard and allow the instrument to gather dust. We must seek out other artists of the spirit, new friends who gradually will help us to find the road to life again, who will walk the road with us."

I really like that quote.

That is nice I will take your post as an invitation for others to add favourite quote on this common sad journey we share. A colleague at work who lost her husband this year sent me this one from George Eliot:
"She was no longer wrestling with the grief, but could sit down with it as a lasting companion and make it a sharer in her thoughts."
- George Eliot

One of my dad's favorite quotes taught to me at a very young age. .

Isn't it strange
That princes and kings,
And clowns that caper
In sawdust rings,
And common people
Like you and me
Are builders for eternity?

Each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass,
A book of rules;
And each must make,
Ere life is flown
A stumbling block
Or a stepping-stone.

So now through this journey of grief, I must decide to build a stepping stone. . again.
