You good gods,
  Let what is here contained relish of love,
    Of my lord's health, of his content--yet not
      That we two are asunder; let that grieve him.
        Some griefs are med'cinable; that is one of them,
          For it doth physic love--of his content
            All but in that.
      - William Shakespeare, Cymbeline
         (Imogen at III, ii)

Great griefs, I see, med'cine the less, for Cloten
  Is quite forgot.
      - William Shakespeare, Cymbeline
         (Belarius at IV, ii)

What private griefs they have, alas, I know not,
  That made them do it.
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Antony at III, ii)

Oft have I heard that grief softens the mind
  And makes it fearful and degenerate.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Queen Margaret at IV, iv)

Who alone suffers suffers most i' th' mind,
  Leaving free things and happy shows behind;
    But then the mind much sufferance doth o'erskip
      When grief hath mates, and bearing fellowship.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (Edgar at III, vi)

Well, every one can master a grief but he that has it.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing
         (Benedick at III, ii)

But there is no such man; for, brother, men
  Can counsel and speak comfort to that grief
    Which they themselves not feel; but, tasting it,
      Their counsel turns to passion, which before
        Would give preceptial medicine to rage,
          Fetter strong madness in a silken thread,
            Charm ache with air and agony with words.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at V, i)

Patch grief with proverbs.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at V, i)

Neither my place, nor aught I heard of business,
  Hath raised me from my bed; nor doth the general care
    Take hold on me; for my particular grief
      Is of so floodgate and o'erbearing nature
        That it engluts and swallows other sorrows,
          And it is still itself.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Brabantio at I, iii)

When remedies are past, the griefs are ended
  By seeing the worst, which late on hopes depended.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Duke of Venice at I, iii)

Griefs of mine own lie heavy in my breast,
  Which thou wilt propagate, to have it prest
    With more of thine.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Romeo at I, i)

Some grief shows much of love;
  But much of grief shows still some want of wit.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Lady Capulet at III, v)

The bloody spur cannot provoke him on
  That sometimes anger thrusts into his hide,
    Which heavily he answers with a groan,
      More sharp to me than spurring to his side;
        For that same groan doth put this in my mind:
          My grief lies onward and my joy behind.
      - William Shakespeare, Sonnet L

O, grief hath changed me since you saw me last,
  And careful hours, with Time's deformed hand,
    Have written strange defeatures in my face.
      - William Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors
         (Egeon at V, i)

I will instruct my sorrows to be proud,
  For grief is proud and makes his owner stoop.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Constance at III, i)

Grief fills the room up of my absent child,
  Lies in his bed, walks up and down with me,
    Puts on his pretty looks, repeats his words,
      Remembers me of all his gracious parts,
        Stuffs out his vacant garments with his form.
          Then have I reason to be fond of grief.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Constance at III, iv)

I am not mad. I would to heaven I were,
  For then 'tis like I should forget myself.
    O, if I could, what grief should I forget!
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Constance at III, iv)

Each substance of a grief hath twenty shadows,
  Which shows like grief itself, but is not so;
    For sorrow's eye, glazed with blinding tears,
      Divides one thing entire to many objects,
        Like perspectives, which rightly gazed upon,
          Show nothing but confusion--eyed awry,
            Distinguish form.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
         (Bushy at II, ii)

My crown I am, but still my griefs are mine.
  You may my glories and my state depose,
    But not my griefs. Still am I king of those.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
         (King Richard at IV, i)

'Tis very true: my grief lies all within;
  And these external manners of laments
    Are merely shadows to the unseen grief
      That swells with silence in the tortured soul.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
         (King Richard at IV, i)

But I have
  That honorable grief lodged here which burns
    Worse than tears drown.
      - William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale
         (Hermione at II, i)

What's gone and what's past help
  Should be past grief.
      - William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale
         (Paulina at III, ii)

Alas, poor man! Grief has so wrought on him
  He takes false shadows for true substances.
      - William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus
         (Marcus at III, ii)

Dr. Holmes says, both wittily and truly, that crying widows are easiest consoled.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

Winter is come and gone,
  But grief returns with the revolving year.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, Adonais (st. 18)
