The closest bonds we will ever know are bonds of grief. The deepest community one of sorrow.

All the Pretty Horses
One often calms one's grief by recounting it
Be free from grief not through insensibility like the irrational animals, nor through want of thought like the foolish, but like a man of virtue by having reason as the consolation of grief
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
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
What right have I to grieve, who have not ceased to wonder?
If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment
No greater grief than to remember days of joy when misery is at hand
If you suppress grief too much, it can well redouble
Woman's grief is like a summer's shower - short as it is violent

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
