I am a saver of great words. In fact I have a pile of comments and sayings that have moved me over the years and on occasion I pull them out and read through them. This one struck me the other day and I just had a need to pass it on. It is one that should be built in to our minds for use in time of need.
"Sorrow comes in great waves...but it rolls over us,
and though it may almost smother us, it leaves us.
And we know that if it is strong, we are stronger,
inasmuch as it passes and we remain."
~ attributed to Henry James
