Grief
 
To this sad shrine, whoe’er thou art! draw near,
Here lies the friend most lov’d, the son most dear;
Who ne’er knew joy but friendship might divide,
Or gave his father grief but when he died.
        Pope.—Epitaph on Harcourt. Ramage.—Beautiful Thoughts from the French, 378.
  1
Alas! alas! what grief is this for Greece.
        Homer.—The Iliad, Book I., Line 302. (Lord Derby.)
  2
Every one can master a grief but he that has it.
        Shakespeare.—Much Ado About Nothing, Act III. Scene 2. (Benedick to Claudio.)
  3
’Tis better to be lowly born,
And range with humble lives in content,
Than to be perk’d up in a glistening grief,
And wear a golden sorrow.
        Shakespeare.—King Henry VIII., Act II. Scene 3. (Anne Bullen to an Old Lady.)
  4
Some griefs are med’cinable.
        Shakespeare.—Cymbeline, Act III. Scene 2. (Imogen on receiving a Letter from her Husband.)
  5
Where the greater malady is fix’d,
The lesser is scarce felt.
        Shakespeare.—King Lear, Act III. Scene 4. (The King to Kent.)
  6
When remedies are past, the griefs are ended.
        Shakespeare.—Othello, Act I. Scene 3. (The Duke to Brabantio.)
  7
What’s gone, and what’s past help,
Should be past grief.
        Shakespeare.—Winter’s Tale, Act III. Scene 2. (Paulina to a Lord.)
  8
        In the first days
Of my distracting grief, I found myself—
As women wish to be who love their lords.
        Home.—Douglas, Act I. Scene 1.
