The quotes given here encapsulate words that have mostly sprung from heavy hearts. However, it also points at the possibility of a rebirth that grief provides you with. Rising and falling is all a matter of human choice and sad quotes are testimony to just that.
If there is one thing that will most certainly happen in everyone's life is the inevitability with which sorrow will grip your heart every once in a while. Every high is always followed with a trough and there is hardly anything you can do about it except to wade through it, hoping and praying for brighter times to set in. But like grief follows joy, the circle of life ensures that joy comes back to where grief has been. It is inevitable, remember? Good times will come back again.
Even though the knowledge that tomorrow will be better, and time will heal all does not ebb today's searing pain, one has to keep looking up, fight to keep the shroud of darkness from obliterating hope from the horizon completely. And knowing that you are not alone, that life sprinkles everybody's existence with difficult times is always soothing, embalming for a battered human soul. This article will give you some of the most famous words ever recorded, pertaining to grief and resurrection. There is always light out there somewhere, all you need to do is enable it to find and engulf you.
