Divorce Quotes: Wry, Funny, Insightful Quotes to Get You Through a Painful Divorce.

Divorce Quotes ...

Below are a series of quotations that will help you through the stages of anger, grief and renewal that typically accompany the dissolution of amarriage. Since it takes some adults quite awhile to get through the angry stage, I've include a few caustic quotations that generalize men and women into groups.

When you're angry, it helps to know that you're not alone. Reading quotations about the anger someone else has felt will help you reach into your own. Identifying with someone's cutting remark and understanding that what's behind it is a painful loss will give you the compassion to move past the anger, avoid bitterness and free you to love again.

The quotations below are organized with the biting quotes at the beginning, the humorous quotes in the middle and the more insightful quotes at the end.

Some of the sarcastic quotes below will make you laugh--humor is great way to lighten your angry load. Let yourself have your feelings, but don't use them to turn on yourself or others. Although you've been wounded, this doesn't justify hurting others or lashing out at the one who hurt your heart. In divorce as in life, the creed of an eye-for-an-eye only destroys its keeper.
