I will not say, “Do not weep”

“Crying does not indicate that you are weak. Since birth it has always been a sign that you are alive.”

~ Charlotte Bronte

no need to be ashamed of tears courage to suffer

“There is a sacredness in tears, they are not the mark of weakness but of power.  They are messengers of overwhelming grief and unspeakable love. “

~Washington Irving

never ashamed of tears dickens

 

“I will not say, do not weep, for not all tears are an evil.”

~ J.R.R. Tolkien

  1. Thank you for sharing. I love this thought from my sweet grief counselor: Some cry a lot, some a little, it is just a sign that people are different, not how much love you had for them. “Where is this Goldilocks who crys just right?”
