As an example, we have prepared a variety of words and messages that offer sympathies for the loss that has occurred. If you are at a loss for what to write in a card of sorrow or sympathy, have a look at our selection of sayings about sympathy and condolence. When you lose someone you care about, you might find comfort in remembering the life they lived and the legacy they left behind. Remember that they are beaming with joy at all that you have accomplished as they look down on you from heaven and see what you have done. Grief is the price we pay for love, therefore it was Queen Elizabeth II who said those famous words.

“When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure,” is a quote that is attributed to Corrie ten Boom. The ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius was credited as saying, “We should experience pain, but we should not drown beneath its oppression.” Always keep your memories of the past close to your chest. They won’t go away any time in the near future. The face that had such a special place in our hearts is no longer there.

Silence was the sound that we were looking forward to hearing the most. From that great of a distance, it is not feasible to see or speak with anybody. To paraphrase Khalil Gibran: “But not so far away that thinking cannot reach there.” As far as Sri Chinmoy is concerned, proper ways to convey pity include saying things like “with sympathy,” “thinking of you at this terrible moment,” and “sending love.” Walt Whitman once wrote that “the sun, the moon, the wind, and the stars will forever be around to remind you of the love you shared and the calm she’s finally found.”

Even when there is no one else around, we can’t help but murmur your name to ourselves. We wholeheartedly agree with what Robert Louis Stevenson had to say when he remarked, “your memory is our treasure, from which we’ll never part,” and we quote him here. There is not going to be any breaking up of our relationship. Wherever you go, Mahatma Gandhi, you will never be too far from my thoughts; I will carry you in my heart wherever you go.
