If grief kills us not, we kill it. Not that I cease to grieve; for each hour, revealing to me how excelling and matchless the being was, who once was mine, but renews the pang with which I deplore my alien state upon earth. But such is God's will; I am doomed to a divided existence, and I submit. Meanwhile I am human; and human affections are the native, luxuriant growth of a heart, whose weakness it is, too eagerly, and too fondly, to seek objects on whom to expend its yearning.Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley: If grief kills us not, we kill it. Not that I cease to grieve; for
When he asked if he was mine, tears in his eyes,
I think he knew what he would do,
what he would have to do,
and he was mourning us.
He was mourning us the whole time.
Emma Forrest Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Emma Forrest: When he asked if he was mine, tears in his eyes, I think he knew
Every widow wakes one morning, perhaps after years of pure and unwavering grieving, to realize she slept a good night's sleep, and will be able to eat breakfast, and doesn't hear her husband's ghost all the time, but only some of the time. Her grief is replaced with a useful sadness. Every parent who loses a child finds a way to laugh again. The timbre begins to fade. The edge dulls. The hurt lessens. Every love is carved from loss. Mine was. Yours is. Your great-great-great-grandchildren's will be. But we learn to live in that love.Jonathan Safran Foer Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Jonathan Safran Foer: Every widow wakes one morning, perhaps after years of pure and unwavering grieving, to realize
Instead of asking ourselves, 'How can I find security and happiness?' we could ask ourselves, 'Can I touch the center of my pain? Can I sit with suffering, both yours and mine, without trying to make it go away? Can I stay present to the ache of loss or disgrace-disapp ointment in all its many forms-and let it open me?' This is the trick.Pema Chodron Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Pema Chodron: Instead of asking ourselves, 'How can I find security and happiness?' we could ask ourselves,
I've grieved enough for his life cut short and for mine for running on for so long with so little in it. It's weakness now, but I suppose I am crying out of a general sense of loss. Maybe I am mourning for the human condition.Rosie Thomas Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Rosie Thomas: I've grieved enough for his life cut short and for mine for running on for
We don't know predestined ways,
or what future might behold,
someone leaves,someone remains,
and new things replace the old.
We don't know a thing for sure,
what's today,is there tomorrow?
Yet,somehow we still endure,
through those moments filled with sorrow.
Can we really be mistaken,
trying just the best we can?
something's given and some taken,
never knowing how nor when.
We don't know that much,it's true,
life's a mystery divine,
a day came,when i lost you,
treasured guiding star of mine.
Aleksandra Ninkovic Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Aleksandra Ninkovic: We don't know predestined ways,or what future might behold,someone leaves,someone remains,and new things replace the
It was magic to be above [the clouds], to see their uppermost contours, the way they caught the light and held it, their vast shadows moving upon the face of the earth. I wished I could open the window and know what the world sounded like at that altitude. I thought about the solitude of that world, how it must be inhabited by the voice of the wind, only. ... I thought about what my crows saw as they flew above canyons and treetops, the birds-eye view of life. They would recognize specific trees, perches, and nesting sites from a completely different perspective than I could. Their maps differed from mine; they knew the topography, the contours of the landscape, on a much grander scale.Elizabeth J. Church Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Elizabeth J. Church: It was magic to be above [the clouds], to see their uppermost contours, the way
You don't think I know that?" Puck was shouting now, green eyes feverish. "You don't think I regret what I did, every single day? You lost Ariella, but I lost you both! Believe it or not, I was kind of a mess, too, Ash. It got to a point where I actually looked forward to our random duels, because that was the only time I could talk to you. When you were freaking trying to kill me!"
"Don't compare your loss to mine," I snarled. "You have no idea what I went through, what you caused."
"You think I don't know pain?" Puck shook his head at me. "Or loss? I've been around a lot longer than you, prince! I know what love is, and I've lost my fair share, too. Just because we have a different way of handling it, doesn't mean I don't have scars of my own."
"Name one," I scoffed. "Give me one instance where you haven't - "
"Meghan Chase!" Puck roared, startling me into silence.
Julie Kagawa Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Julie Kagawa: You don't think I know that?" Puck was shouting now, green eyes feverish. "You don't
How many times do I have to say I'm sorry before you believe it? That I acknowledge I made a terrible mistake and have done everything I know how to fix it? How can you just freeze me out after that and walk away from everything we had?"
Hurt and resentment swelled inside him, mixing with the anger in a toxic, chaotic mess. "You walked away first," he shot back. "That was your choice." Then I made mine. It was a low blow, even if it was true. But he refused to feel guilty about it, even under the circumstances. He hadn't wanted to have this conversation, but she'd insisted, and he wouldn't lie to her about the way things stood.
Honor's chin came up, her tears evaporating as her eyes sparked with fresh anger. "I did," she admitted quietly, her control merely emphasizing the loss of his own. "I did walk away and it was the absolute worst mistake of my life. I'm sorry, Liam. See? I'm a big enough person to admit it to your face. Are you?
Kaylea Cross Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Kaylea Cross: How many times do I have to say I'm sorry before you believe it? That
The spiritual and the physical had been blended in us with a perfection that must remain incomprehensible to the matter-of-fact, crude, standard-brained youngsters of today.
Long after her death I felt her thoughts floating through mine.
Long before we met we had had the same dreams.
Vladimir Nabokov Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Vladimir Nabokov: The spiritual and the physical had been blended in us with a perfection that must
Someone told me just recently that poets are eulogists. It's their job, to eulogize. I didn't know that, but it makes sense. Because in almost every poem of mine there is a loss.Dan Quisenberry Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Dan Quisenberry: Someone told me just recently that poets are eulogists. It's their job, to eulogize. I
There is no good talking to him," said a Dragon-fly, who was sitting on the top of a large brown bulrush; "no good at all, for he has gone away."
"Well, that is his loss, not mine," answered the Rocket. "I am not going to stop talking to him merely because he pays no attention. I like hearing myself talk. It is one of my greatest pleasures. I often have long conversations all by myself, and I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying."
"Then you should definitely lecture on Philosophy," said the Dragon-fly.
Oscar Wilde Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Oscar Wilde: There is no good talking to him," said a Dragon-fly, who was sitting on the
When we lost something precious, and we'd looked and looked and still couldn't find it, then we didn't have to be completely heartbroken. We still had that last bit of comfort, thinking one day, when we grow up, and we were free to travel around the counry, we would always go and find it in Norfolk ... And that's why years and years later, that day Tommy and I found another copy of that lost tape of mine in a town on the Norfolk coast, we didn't just think it pretty funny; we both felt deep down some tug, some old wish to believe again in something that was once close to our hearts.Kazuo Ishiguro Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Kazuo Ishiguro: When we lost something precious, and we'd looked and looked and still couldn't find it,
There are a lot of things that aren't your fault. Or mine, either. Not the fault of prophecies, or curses, or DNA, or absurdity. Not the fault of Structuralism or the Third Industrial Revolution. We all die and disappear, but that's because the mechanism of the world itself is built on destruction and loss. Our lives are just shadows of that guiding principle. Say the wind blows. It can be a strong, violent wind or a gentle breeze. But eventually every kind of wind dies out and disappears. Wind doesn't have form. It's just a movement of air.Haruki Murakami Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Haruki Murakami: There are a lot of things that aren't your fault. Or mine, either. Not the
All my life they had made choices for me, and I had resented it. Now the choice was mine, and once it was made, I would have no right to blame anyone else for the consequences. Loss of that privilege, to blame others, unexpectedly stung.Megan Whalen Turner Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Megan Whalen Turner: All my life they had made choices for me, and I had resented it. Now
The moon taught me that only madness is pure. Once I'd made a start without it, my life was trodden territory, never really mine. At first I found this depressing, a sense of loss I could barely feel but which sapped me. In time I grew used to the feeling, which made it possible to bring more feet into my impure mind to track things up. If I couldn't go back, I might as well go forward. ICatherine Ryan Hyde Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Catherine Ryan Hyde: The moon taught me that only madness is pure. Once I'd made a start without
Should God create another Eve, and I
Another Rib afford, yet loss of thee

The Link of Nature draw me: Flesh of Flesh,
Bone of my Bone thou art, and from thy State
Mine never shall be parted, bliss or woe.

For a time, I was quite literally at loss as to what to do with myself. For more than half a century I had looked after Suleiman.My daily existence had been shaped by his needs, his companionship. Now I was free to do as I wished, but I found the freedom illusory, for what I wished for the most had been taken from me. They say, find a purpose in your life and live it. But, sometimes, it is only after you have lived that you recognize your life had a purpose, and likely one you never had in mind. And now that I had fulfilled mine, I felt aimless and adrift.Khaled Hosseini Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Khaled Hosseini: For a time, I was quite literally at loss as to what to do with
Not fulfilling your dreams will be a loss to the world, because the world needs everyone's gift - yours and mine.Barbara Sher Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Barbara Sher: Not fulfilling your dreams will be a loss to the world, because the world needs
He who never thinks of anything as 'mine' does not feel the lack of anything: he is never worried by a sense of loss.Gautama Buddha Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Gautama Buddha: He who never thinks of anything as 'mine' does not feel the lack of anything:
I did not think you would be angry, Jem burst out, and it was like ice cracking across a frozen waterfall, freeing a torrent. We were engaged, Tessa. A proposal-an offer of marriage-is a promise. A promise to love and care for someone always. I did not mean to break mine to you. But it was that or die. I wanted to wait, to be married to you and live wit you for years, but that wasn't possible. I was dying too fast. I would have given it up-all of it up-to be married to you for a day. A day that would never have come. You are a reminder-a reminder of everything I am losing. The life I will not have.Cassandra Clare Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Cassandra Clare: I did not think you would be angry, Jem burst out, and it was like
Every parent who loses a child finds a way to laugh again. The timbre begins to fade. The edge dulls. The hurt lessens. Every love is carved from loss. Mine was. Yours is. Your great-great-
great-children's will be. But we learn to live with that love.
Jonathan Safran Foer Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Jonathan Safran Foer: Every parent who loses a child finds a way to laugh again. The timbre begins
Whatever the ego seeks and gets attached to are substitutes for the Being that it cannot feel. You can value and care for things, but whenever you get attached to them, you will know it's the ego. And you are never really attached to a thing but to a thought that has 'I,' 'me,' or 'mine' in it. Whenever you completely accept a loss, you go beyond ego, and who you are, the I Am which is consciousness itself, emerges.Eckhart Tolle Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Eckhart Tolle: Whatever the ego seeks and gets attached to are substitutes for the Being that it
I look. There it is. I feel it. The insistent pull to the heart that the hawk brings, that very old longing of mine to possess the hawk's eye. To live the safe and solitary life; to look down on the world from a height and keep it there. To be the watcher; invulnerable, detached, complete. My eyes fill with water. Here I am, I think. And I do not think I am safe.Helen Macdonald Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Helen Macdonald: I look. There it is. I feel it. The insistent pull to the heart that
As a warrior, she won't have allowed herself to mourn. But women can't make themselves as detached as men. Our hearts are bigger. We feel loss in a way men don't. Orna has the body and mind of a warrior but her heart is like mine, and I know inside she's weeping.Darren Shan Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Darren Shan: As a warrior, she won't have allowed herself to mourn. But women can't make themselves
Like humans, birds mourn the loss of fledglings and mates. There are a thousand variant weeping songs to sing. I had to sign mine and get on with it. That is what I didMichele Young-Stone Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Michele Young-Stone: Like humans, birds mourn the loss of fledglings and mates. There are a thousand variant
A caregiver is changed by the culture of illness, just as one is changed by the dynamic era in which one lives. For one thing, I don't have as much time in conversation with myself, and I feel the loss. Certainly I worry more about his death, and mine too, since I;m so much a part of the evolving saga of his health, which I have to monitor every day. But I've grown stronger in every aspect of my life. In small ways: speaking more directly with people. In large ways: discovering I can handle adversity and potential loss and yet keep going. I've a better idea of my strength. I feel like I've been tested, like a willow whipped around violently in a hurricane, but still stranding, its roots strong enough to hold. [p. 301]Diane Ackerman Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Diane Ackerman: A caregiver is changed by the culture of illness, just as one is changed by
To my amazement and great, bittersweet joy, I can hear in him every reason I feell in love with his father - everything, like a second sonata to a first. All the lovely unspoiled good of N, bubbling forth from his son, unlooked for, oozing up from a well of genealogy and fate. I can manage to misplace my husabnd, but this flesh is chained to mine. I will always be reminded of the marital loss, but I have the benefits of the entire play, the witness of the evolution, the new art. I see the magic every day; I live with the sorcerer in yellow pants. N gets pieces and stems of A, random and marred by guilty.Suzanne Finnamore Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Suzanne Finnamore: To my amazement and great, bittersweet joy, I can hear in him every reason I
You should love something while you have it, love it fully and without reservation, even if you know you'll lose it someday. We lose everything. If you're trying to avoid loss, there's no point in taking another breath, or letting your heart beat one more time. It all ends." His fingers curl around mine. "That's all life is. Breathing in, breathing out. The space between two breaths.Leah Raeder Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Leah Raeder: You should love something while you have it, love it fully and without reservation, even

Though I knew in my mind that others had felt such loss, this loss was mine, and I felt that no one would ever understand it, and to try to explain the lonliness and pain I felt would be futile.Linda Hawley Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Linda Hawley: Though I knew in my mind that others had felt such loss, this loss was
Poet of Nature, thou hast wept to know
That things depart which never may return:
Childhood and youth, friendship and love's first glow,
Have fled like sweet dreams, leaving thee to mourn.
These common woes I feel. One loss is mine
Which thou too feel'st, yet I alone deplore.
Thou wert as a lone star, whose light did shine
On some frail bark in winter's midnight roar:
Thou hast like to a rock-built refuge stood
Above the blind and battling multitude:
In honored poverty thy voice did weave
Songs consecrate to truth and liberty,
Deserting these, thou leavest me to grieve,
Thus having been, that thou shouldst cease to be
Percy Bysshe Shelley Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Percy Bysshe Shelley: Poet of Nature, thou hast wept to knowThat things depart which never may return:Childhood and
Now that mine is almost over, I can say that the one thing that struck me most about life is the capacity for change. One day you're a person and the next day they tell you you're a dog. At first it's hard to bear, but after a while you learn not to look at it as a loss. There's even a moment when it becomes exhilarating to realize just how little needs to stay the same for you to continue the effort they call, for lack of a better word, being human.Nicole Krauss Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Nicole Krauss: Now that mine is almost over, I can say that the one thing that struck
I can hear my mom.
I can hear her take a deep breath. I hear her pushing words out, and I can almost see her, for a second, the look on her face, her hand pressed to her own heart, the other in a fist.
"You can go if you have to go," my mom says, and her voice shakes, but she's solid. She says it again, so I'll know. "You can go if you have to go, okay, baby? Don't wait for me. I love you, you're mine, you'll always be mine, and this is going to be okay, you're safe, baby, you're safe-"
... And after that? There's nothing.

He makes me turn,
he makes me toss;

Lang Leav Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Lang Leav: He makes me turn, he makes me toss;his words mean mineare at a loss.
You're absolved," I tell him.
He brings his eyes back up to mine. There's no fucking way he knows what that word means. That's a word I dream someone will say to me.
So I put it in his language. "You're free.

For my sake," he said firmly, addressing the air in front of him as though it were a tribunal, "I dinna want ye to bear another child. I wouldna risk your loss, Sassenach," he said, his voice suddenly husky. "Not for a dozen bairns. I've daughters and sons, nieces and nephews, grandchildren - weans enough."

He looked at me directly then, and spoke softly.

"But I've no life but you, Claire."

He swallowed audibly, and went on, eyes fixed on mine.

"I did think, though . . . if ye do want another child . . . perhaps I could still give ye one.
Diana Gabaldon Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Diana Gabaldon: For my sake," he said firmly, addressing the air in front of him as though
Jesus is no stranger to pain or loss or heartache, and there are some times when the only thing that eases the pain is his comfort. I wasn't ready, and still am not, to mine through this experience for opportunities to grow, things to learn, ways to transcend and transform. Maybe I'll be ready over time, and maybe not. But it is an opportunity to be comforted. I'd rather not need the comfort. But I'm thankful that it's there when I need it,Shauna Niequist Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Shauna Niequist: Jesus is no stranger to pain or loss or heartache, and there are some times
Truman Flynn is a piece of paper in my coat pocket. He is a memory of water and of loss, his hand sliding free from mine, no way to hold on.Brenna Yovanoff Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Brenna Yovanoff: Truman Flynn is a piece of paper in my coat pocket. He is a memory
With you a part of me hath passed away;
For in the peopled forest of my mind
A tree made leafless by this wintry wind
Shall never don again its green array.
Chapel and fireside, country road and bay,
Have something of their friendliness resigned;
Another, if I would, I could not find,
And I am grown much older in a day.
But yet I treasure in my memory
Your gift of charity, and young hearts ease,
And the dear honour of your amity;
For these once mine, my life is rich with these.
And I scarce know which part may greater be,
What I keep of you, or you rob from me.
George Santayana Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By George Santayana: With you a part of me hath passed away; For in the peopled forest of
I would like to see you. But: I would only like to see you with your feeling space, and desire, the parents of bravery, and curiosity. I would like you to want to see me without you feeling seduced or pressured. I would like to see you without our playing games: for games are for winners and losers and I do not ever want to win against you, or for you to lose against me, and I do not want to lose against you or for you to win against me. For we are part of the whole, the main, as Donne said - and your gain is mine and my loss is yours. Love is about finding one's match, which means we shall touch our minds and hearts together at once, and never condescend or aim for any goal between us but the truth.Waylon H. Lewis Your Loss Not Mine Sayings By Waylon H. Lewis: I would like to see you. But: I would only like to see you with
