Expression of sympathy and grief is perhaps one of the most difficult expressions to convey to someone so dear to us. It’s very hard to come up with the right words and messages to alleviate the pain in their grieving heart. But make it a little less difficult by using sympathy quotes and sayings. Writing your own sympathy messages can be a daunting task but quotes about sympathy made it less overwhelming.

I can relate to all of you, to those who just can’t let their feelings and thoughts in words. Messages of sympathy don’t have to be exaggerated. Using inspirational sympathy quotes may help you in writing your message by using them as your introduction. For those who don’t want to use generic quotes of sympathy, you may refer to our samples of condolence messages. I hope you find this collection of sympathy sayings helpful.
