Archives For sorrow

Don’t be ashamed to weep; ‘tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.

Brian Jacques, Taggerung

J.R.R. Tolkien

슬픔은 인간에게 진지한 생각의 습관과 깊은 이해력, 그리고 부드러운 마음을 가져다준다. (Grief drives men into habits of serious reflection, sharpens the understanding and softens the heart.)
