Quotes to comfort and inspire


Quotations can help us in so many areas of our lives. They provide us with a way forward and direction during difficult times. There are many times when we don't know which way to turn, we listen to family and friends offering advice, but we need something more to help inspire and guide us. Quotes give us a different perspective on our situation, they give us the answers to the questions we have been asking. We hope the following quotes will help inspire and guide you and give you some hope for the future.

Some of the quotes below are taken from a Facebook group called Grieving Mothers set up by a bereaved Mum in the States, to offer poems and quotations to help comfort other grieving mothers, visit their page to find many more poems and quotes to help you through this time.
