“Grief, I think, is not something you get over.  I think, instead it’s something you travel through.  And now I’ve travelled to the other side, I won’t forget the journey.”
Deborah Gemmill in “The chance to say goodbye”

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened”
Anatole Frances

“One thing is certain though, and that is the fact that grief never leaves you – however it changes and evolves.  Yor loss stays with you forever.  It becomes a part of who you are, forever.”
A. Kellehear in ‘Grief and remembering’

“If man is not to stifle his human feelings, he must practice kindness towards animals, for he who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men.  We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.”
Emmanuel Kant

“This is what happens around the world; if you love, you grieve, and there are no exceptions.”
Thomas Lynch
