Grief Quotes: All those years I fell for the great palace lie that grief should be gotten over as quickly as possible and as privately.

Quote about Grief: To mourn is to wonder at the strangeness that grief is not written all over your face in bruised hieroglyphics. And it's also to feel, quite powerfully, that you're not allowed to descend into the deepest fathom of your grief - that to do so would be taboo somehow.
