Bitterness is a costly choice …

“The risk of love is loss, and the price of loss is grief – But the pain of grief is only a shadow when compared with the pain of never risking love.” – Hilary Stanton Zanin

“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself walking around in the daytime, and falling into at night.” – Brenda Mallon

“Grief and pain are the price humans have to pay for the love and total commitment we have for another person. The more we love the more we hurt when we lose the object of our love. But if we are honest with ourselves, would we have it any other way?’ – C.S. Lewis,  A Grief Observed

“Love is the foundation for both joy and grief. Grief is the foundation for choosing compassion over bitterness.” ~ Sue Rosenbloom
