In rising sighs and falling tears.
      - Joseph Addison

Why wilt thou add to all the griefs I suffer
  Imaginary ills, and fancy'd tortures?
      - Joseph Addison, Cato (act IV, sc. 1)

There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief.
      - Aeschylus

It is dangerous to abandon one's self to the luxury of grief: it deprives one of courage, and even of the wish for recovery.
      - Henri-Frederic Amiel

We hear the rain fall, but not the snow. Bitter grief is loud, calm grief is silent.
      - Berthold Auerbach

The flood of grief decreaseth when it can swell no longer.
      - Francis Bacon

Grief hallows hearts, even while it ages heads.
      - Philip James Bailey

Give to a wounded heart seclusion; consolation nor reason ever effected anything in such a case.
      - Honore de Balzac

Grief ennobles the commonest people because it has its own essential grandeur. To shine with the luster of grief, a person need only be sincere.
      - Honore de Balzac

As warmth makes even glaciers trickle, and opens streams in the ribs of frozen mountains, so the heart knows the full flow and life of its grief only when it begins to melt and pass away.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Tearless grief bleeds inwardly.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

O, brothers! let us leave the shame and sin
  Of taking vainly in a plaintive mood,
    The holy name of Grief--holy herein,
      That, by the grief of One, came all our good.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning,

Thank God, bless God, all ye who suffer not
  More grief than ye can weep for. That is well--
    That is light grieving!
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Tears

Grief alone can teach us what is man.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

The person who grieves suffers his passion to grow upon him; he indulges it, he loves it; but this never happens in the case of actual pain, which no man ever willingly endured for any considerable time.
      - Edmund Burke

Oppress'd with grief, oppress'd with care,
  A burden more than I can bear,
    I sit me down and sigh;
      O, life! thou art a galling load,
        Along a rough, a weary road,
          To wretches such as I.
      - Robert Burns

Alas! the breast that inly bleeds has nought to fear from outward blow.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The wither'd frame, the ruin'd mind,
  The wreck by passion left behind,
    A shrivell'd scroll, a scatter'd leaf,
      Sear'd by the autumn blast of grief!
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

They truly mourn that mourn without a witness.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Upon her face there was the tint of grief,
  The settled shadow of an inward strife;
    And an unquiet drooping of the eye,
      As if its lid were charged with unshed tears.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Grief has been compared to a hydra; for every one that dies, two are born.
      - Pedro Calderon de la Barca

Griefs are like the beings that endure them--the little ones are the most clamorous and noisy; those of older growth and greater magnitude are generally tranquil, and sometimes silent.
      - Paul Chatfield (a/k/a Horace Smith)

It is folly to tear one's hair in sorrow, as if grief could be assuaged by baldness.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

No grief is so acute but time ameliorates it.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

There is no grief which time does not lessen and soften.
  [Lat., Nullus dolor est quem non longinquitas temporis minuat ac molliat.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Epistles (IV, 5)
