MOURNERS
[ Also see Funerals Mourning ]

They truly mourn, that mourn without a witness.
      - Marie Le Baron

Heavy sorrow is silent, and the deepest mourning is the most solitary.
      - Charles Buxton

Away! we know that tears are vain, that death ne'er heeds nor hears distress.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

To be left alone in the wide world with scarcely a friend,--this makes the sadness which, striking its pang into the minds of the young and the affectionate, teaches them too soon to watch and interpret the spirit-signs of their own hearts.
      - Nathaniel Hawthorne

Sorrows when shared are less burdensome, though joys divided are increased.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

O, very gloomy is the House of Woe,
  Where tears are falling while the bell is knelling,
    With all the dark solemnities which show
      That Death is in the dwelling!
        O, very, very dreary is the room
          Where Love, domestic Love, no longer nestles,
            But smitten by the common stroke of doom,
              The corpse lies on the trestles!
      - Thomas Hood

Great sorrow makes sacred the sufferer.
      - Owen Meredith (pseudonym of Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton, Lord Lytton)

Many a smiling face hides a mourning heart; but grief alone teaches us what we are.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

I have that honorable grief lodged here which burns worse than tears drown.
      - William Shakespeare

Moderate lamentation is the right of the dead; excessive grief the enemy to the living.
      - William Shakespeare

To be impatient at the death of a person concerning whom it was certain he must die, is to mourn because thy friend was not born an angel.
      - Jeremy Taylor

How wretched is the man who never mourned?
      - Edward Young
