“Grief lasts longer than sympathy, which is one of the tragedies of the grieving.”
“We were promised sufferings. They were part of the program. We were even told, 'Blessed are they that mourn,' and I accept it. I've got nothing that I hadn't bargained for. Of course it is different when the thing happens to oneself, not to others, and in reality, not imagination.”
“They should make earplugs for people who are grieving, so we don't have to hear the stupid things people say, but I'd look like a dork in them."
