Crying Quotes – the importance of tears

June 6, 2012

Just shared a photo on my facebook page that read ‘Just Pray. Tell God all the things that bother you & cry it all to Him. He hears you and He cares.’ I’m not really into religious messages, but I thought this message what quite profound. It made me go in search of some good crying quotes.

These are a mixture of the best few that I found from here! They explain the nature and importance of shedding tears.


“Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts. I was better after I had cried, than before–more sorry, more aware of my own ingratitude, more gentle.”  ―    Charles Dickens,    Great Expectations

“If you’ve never eaten while crying  you don t know what life tastes like.”  ―    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Crying is one of the highest devotional songs.  One who knows crying, knows spiritual practice.  If you can cry with a pure heart, nothing else compares to such a prayer.  Crying includes all the principles of Yoga.”  ―    Kripalvanandji

“He wanted to cry quietly but not for himself: for the words, so beautiful and sad, like music.”  ―    James Joyce,    A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

“When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.”  ―    Lemony Snicket,    Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid

“Guys always think tears are a sign of weakness.  They’re a sign of FRUSTRATION. She’s only crying so she won’t cut your throat in your sleep.  So make nice and be grateful.”  ―    Donna Barr

“Don’t be ashamed to weep; ’tis right to grieve.  Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water.  But there must be sunlight also.  A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”  ―    Brian Jacques,    Taggerung

“Life is like an onion; you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.”  ―    Carl Sandburg
