Favorite Loss And Strength Quotes

1. "A caregiver is changed by the culture of illness, just as one is changed by the dynamic era in which one lives. For one thing, I don't have as much time in conversation with myself, and I feel the loss. Certainly I worry more about his death, and mine too, since I;m so much a part of the evolving saga of his health, which I have to monitor every day. But I've grown stronger in every aspect of my life. In small ways: speaking more directly with people. In large ways: discovering I can handle adversity and potential loss and yet keep going. I've a better idea of my strength. I feel like I've been tested, like a willow whipped around violently in a hurricane, but still stranding, its roots strong enough to hold. [p. 301]"
Author: Diane Ackerman
2. "Once you pass a certain age, life becomes noting more than a process of continual loss. Things that are important to your life begin to slip out of your grasp, one after another, like a comb losing teeth. And the only things that come to take their place are worthless imitations. Your physical strength, your hopes, your dreams, your ideals, your convictions, all meaning, or, then again, the people you love: one by one, they fade away. Some announce their departure before they leave, while others just disappear all of a sudden without warning one day. And once you lose them you can never get them back. Your search for replacement never goes well. It's all very painful- as painful as actually being cut with a knife."
Author: Haruki Murakami
3. "Magic And Loss (The Summation)"They say no one person can do it allBut you want to in your headBut you can't be Shakespeare and you can't be JoyceSo what is left insteadYou're stuck with yourself and a rage that can hurt youYou have to start at the beginning againAnd just this momentThis wonderful fire started up againWhen you pass through humble, when you pass through sicklyWhen you pass through, I'm better than you allWhen you pass through anger and self deprecationAnd have the strength to acknowledge it allWhen the past makes you laugh and you can savor the magicThat let you survive your own warYou find that that fire is passionAnd there's a door up ahead, not a wall"
Author: Lou Reed

5. "Loss of empathy might well be the most enduring and deep-cutting scar of all, the silent blade of an unseen emey, tearing at our hearts and stealing more than our strength- Drizzt Do'Urden"
Author: R.A. Salvatore
6. "In all cases love was a strong emotion, not easily contained once it was unleashed. I realized now that love was like a blossoming flower that continually added more and more petals. But there was no end point. There was no full bloom. It went on forever. Growing, strengthening."
Author: Rachel Hawthorne
7. "Hope knows no fear.Hope dares to blossom even inside the abysmal abyss.Hope secretly feeds and strengthens promise."
Author: Sri Chinmoy
8. "Measure thy life by loss and not by gain,Not by the wine drunk, but by the wine poured forth.For love's strength standeth in love's sacrifice,And he who suffers most has most to give."
Author: Testy McTesterson

Today's Quote

She'd never encountered any stories as intricate or compelling as the stories he gave her, nor anything that made her sigh when she read it. She liked best the stories about people becoming other things. Stories where women became swans or echoes. In the evenings, when Finn disappeared into the mysterious recesses of the laboratory, Cat went out to the garden or down to the river and wondered what it would be like to be a stream of water, a cypress tree, a star burning a million miles away."
