Everyone dies. It’s the one thing about life every single one of us can count. However, when a loved one passes it is still a kick to the heart that leaves you bruised and aching. Being strong seems like an unnattainable goal. These comforting quotes about death and bereavement remind us that we are not alone. It doesn’t matter if you are grieving the loss of a grandparent, parent, sibling, friend, pregnancy loss; grief is painful.
And, as we get older, we feel that pain much more frequently.
Comforting quotes about death and grief
No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.
-C. S. Lewis
It takes strength to make your way through grief, to grab hold of life and let it pull you forward.
Tears are the silent language of Death.
Grief and memory go together. After someone dies, that’s what you’re left with. And the memories are so slippery yet so rich.
– Mike Mills
Grief is the price we pay for love.
-Queen Elizabeth II
There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.
You aren’t alone
It isn’t easy to cope with the death of a loved one. The darkness may seem overwhelming. If you are struggling and feel hopeless, please get help. Contact your doctor or reach out to friends and family members for support.
I pray for peace and acceptance to come quickly for you and am sorry for your loss. The pain of grief and fear of death binds every single one of us to each other. I know the searing shock of pain and have felt the grief that burns through you so completely that you feel like you will never feel again. You can get through this.
With all my love,

What can I say, but very wise words about death and grief. From my own experience, grief takes time to process and time does have a way of helping. But still the greatest of losses just stay with you and shape who you are (again at least from my experience). But also good memories do help to lessen the pain from death and grief, too.
I am pinning this because when you’re ‘in the moment’ or have a friend who is, the right words can make all the difference. Thank you for compiling these comforting quotes about loss.
I collected several of these while I was “in the moment.” I also collected a few darker ones but these were encouraging and did give me hope.
