A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on love, loss, and truth

I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

A Quote by Raphie on world trade center, wtc, windows on the world, wedding, flowers, roses, statue of liberty, loss, death, spirit, and september 11

I can still see the amber sunset and the Statue of Liberty through the newly-wedded paned-glass of Windows on the World that Sunday evening three weeks before the Towers fell. We left the wedding dozens of roses in hand the bride and groom needed not there was such a surfeit. That view I experienced is a sight that now exists for birds alone and, perchance, a lingering spirit or two; or, if the fates be cruel, a whispered echo of that golden-haired bartender's gorgeous smile.

A Quote by Jacqueline Carey on love, loss, choice, choose, and choosing

Love, child!  What else?  You will find it and lose it, again and again.  And with each finding and each loss, you will become more than before.  What you make of it is yours to choose...

A Quote by Thomas Moore on friends, friendship, loss, and abandonment

Pythagoras asks that we not let a friend go lightly, for whatever reason.  Instead, we should stay with a friend as long as we can, until we're compelled to abandon him completely against our will.  It's a serious thing to toss away money, but to cast aside a person is even more serious.  Nothing in human life is more rarely found, nothing more dearly possessed.  No loss is more chilling or more dangerous than that of a friend.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on questions, answers, insights, searching, focus, intent, and loss

In a story told in many traditions and versions; a man is crouched over the ground at night under a lamppost obviously looking for something.  A passerby asks, "Have you lost something?", "Yes, my key," he says.  "Did you lose it here?"  "No", he says, "over there, but there's light over here."

A Quote by Frank O'Connor on grief, loss, and gratitude

All I know from my own experience is that the more loss we feel the more grateful we should be for whatever it was we had to lose. It means that we had something worth grieving for. The ones I'm sorry for are the ones that go through life
not knowing what grief is.
