My recent article about writing a eulogy got me thinking about writer's block -- the condition where you can't think about what to write about or, even if you have a subject in mind, how to proceed. I've experienced this at times throughout my career and, sometimes, the best solution was simply to shut down my computer and try again the next day.
But more often, I've jumped on Google and searched for quotations about my chosen topic. Reading the eloquent expressions born of the world's great minds usually jostles my own gray matter enough to get the words flowing.
With that in mind, I've gathered a selection of quotes on the death, dying and grief caused by the loss of a mother. If you are in the process of writing a eulogy for your mother, or feeling her loss and seeking some comforting words, then I hope you will find these quotations helpful.
In the future, I will add selections focused on other loved ones, such as fathers, grandparents, siblings, etc.
Do you have an inspiring quotation about mothers you'd like to share? Please post it in the comments section below.
