Loss Quotes and Sayings
Loss is hell hard, it takes time to heal, but when we do, we can cherish those memories & remember for those who can’t remember for themselves.
OK, so I make up so much ridiculous quotes of my own & live in a constant bubble of philosophical stuff.
But it’s true. In the last 2 years of my important schooling which very much determines my career which I hope will be medicine, I lose a close friend, a best friend I knew since kinder (4 years), an uncle & my great grandma.
It’s a wonder I can still concentrate & hold a straight face when I hear of those people who gossip over “THAT train suicide” or illness & the like.
Hearing life go on is the hardest thing, to know while you’re caught in this vortex of sadness/grief/missing someone/loneliness, there are those who have no idea & who go on as normal.
Worse? to hear people be disrespectful & talk about loss & losses of someone they may have known with matter- of- fact GOSSIP. Its a topic of conversation to lighten their mood rather than to reflect & learn.
& It hurts even more that someone can just be gone. That I work opposite this train station, that I was working that day & still didn’t know, that I never visited in France, that I took for granted they would ALL be there, that I didn’t understand the extent of illnesses – mental & physical.
Indeed it gets better, I know it does, it’ll always hurt, but when we try to see reality for what it is & at least try to keep at pace with the train that is life, the transition from one place to another is made easier & we’ll remember good times more often than being guilty/angry/ashamed & anything we encounter.
If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
A loss can either break you or refuel your passion.. It’s how you choose to use it!
I wish I could turn back the hands of time.. Back to the days when you were mine.
You cant force someone to care, you can only sit and wait till everything catches up to them and when it finally does maybe then they’ll realize what they lost.
– Nishan Panwar
When you’re around someone so much, for so long, they become a part of you, and when they go away, you don’t know who you are without them.
Failure, loss and defeat are just mile markers on the road to success.
– Jeffrey Fry
It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.
– Chuck Palahniuk
I cannot conceive of a greater loss than the loss of one’s self-respect.
– Mahatma Gandhi
Tears are God’s gift to us. Our holy water. They heal us as they flow. – Rita Schiano
Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.
– Norman Cousins
