There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness,
but of power.
They speak more eloquently
than 10,000 tongues.
They are the messengers
of overwhelming grief,
of deep contrition,
and of unspeakable love.

- Washington Irving

  1. More Washington Irving that I have found comforting since my son died.
    "Sorrow for the dead is the only sorrow from which we refuse to be divorced."

    My heart goes out to you.
