Cleansing Tears


There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness,
but of power.
They speak more eloquently
than ten thousand tongues.
They are messengers of
overwhelming grief ...
and unspeakable love.
- Washington Irving

The dew of compassion is a tear.
- Lord Byron

Those who don't know how to weep with their whole heart,
don't know how to laugh either
- Golda Meir

Time engraves our faces with all the tears we have not shed.
- Natalie Clifford Barney

The bitterest tears shed over graves
are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
- Harriet Beecher Stowe

Tears are the summer showers to the soul.
- Alfred Austin

Tears and laughter cleanse the heart.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Are you holding back long-suppressed emotions? Let your feelings flow, right now.

While some of us wear our emotions on our sleeve, others keep feelings bottled up for decades. Strike a balance. If you are suffering with unexpressed frustration or grief, let the tears flow. Then find a friend to laugh with. Laughter, however artificial it feels, lightens the saddest moments and bonds us to family and friends.
