Grief

July 7, 2008

To grieve is also to praise.

“(G)rief is awareness that you will have to be alone, and there is nothing beyond that because being alone is the ultimate final destiny of each individual living creature. That’s what death is, the great loneliness.”

“Grief causes you to leave yourself. You step outside your narrow little pelt. And you can’t feel grief unless you’ve had love before it—grief is the final outcome of love, because it’s love lost… It’s the cycle of love completed: to love, to lose, to feel grief, to leave, and then to love again.”

– Philip K. Dick from Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said
