Tears are the silent language of grief.
Voltaire

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.
Norman Cousins

I say to people who care for people who are dying, if you really love that person and want to help them, be with them when their end comes close. Sit with them - you don't even have to talk. You don't have to do anything but really be there with them.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind.
Marcel Proust

Grief can't be shared. Everyone carries it alone. His own burden in his own way.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Tears can also be a release of emotions. Glad or sad.
