56 Remembrance and Memorial Quotes

Remembrance and Memorial quotes In moments of loss and remembrance, we often search for the right words to express the profound emotions that envelop us. Farewell words that express the depth of our love, the pain of our loss, and the beauty of the memories we will forever hold dear.

As we commemorate the lives of those we've lost, quotes can often provide comfort, perspective, and a sense of connection. They remind us that we are not alone in our grief and that love and memory transcend the boundaries of physical existence. Words cannot erase our loss, or even accurately convey our deepest sympathy, and yet, sometimes the right words really can make all the difference as we honor the memory of an amazing person, and remember that while they are gone from our lives, their spirit lives on,

In this post, I've compiled a collection of touching remembrance quotes. These words echo the universal human experience of loss, honor the enduring impact of those we've loved and lost, and celebrate the eternal nature of love.

Whether you're seeking solace, crafting a fitting tribute, or simply taking a moment to remember a loved one, friends or loving family lost, I hope these quotes bring you comfort and inspire reflection.

You can draw upon these memorial quotes when writing a condolence card, incorporating them into a memorial program, or simply seeking comfort during a difficult time. Let their wisdom and warmth serve as a tender reminder of the enduring presence of those we have lost, celebrating their lives and the love they shared.

These memorial quotes offer a gentle reflection on the power of loving memory and the eternal connection between hearts, regardless of physical absence.

“After your death, you will be what you were before your birth.”— Arthur Schopenhauer

“The body is only a garment. How many times you have changed your clothing in this life, yet because of this, you would not say that you have changed.

“Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.”— Helen Keller

“Life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one. In the depths of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond; and like seeds dreaming beneath the snow, your heart dreams of spring. Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.” — Kahlil Gibran

“Death is only a level crossing from one life to another, from life in its beginnings to life in full achievements. From this incomplete life to that transformed one.” — Raoul Plus

“Death – the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.” — Walter Scott

“Death is nothing else but going home to God, the bond of love will be unbroken for all eternity.”— Mother Teresa

“You live on earth only for a few short years which you call an incarnation, and then you leave your body as an outworn dress and go for refreshment to your true home in the spirit.” — White Eagle

“Choose to see death as simply removing a garment or moving from one room to another… it's merely a transition.” — Wayne Dyer

“I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought, and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.”— Leo Buscaglia

“To live in hearts we leave behind Is not to die.”—  Thomas Campbell

“As long as we live they too will live, for they are now are a part of us, as we remember them.” — Jewish Prayer

“Never the spirit was born; the spirit shall cease to be never; Never was time it was not; End and Beginning are dreams! Birthless and deathless and changeless remaineth the spirit forever; Death hath not touched it at all, dead though the house of it seems.” — The Bhagavad Gita

“How glorious is life after death! No more will you have to lug about this old baggage of bones, with all its troubles. You will be free in the astral heaven, unhindered by physical limitations.” — Paramahansa Yogananda

“Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.” — David Searls

“Death is simply a shedding of the physical body like the butterfly shedding its cocoon. It is a transition to a higher state of consciousness where you continue to perceive, to understand, to laugh, and to be able to grow.” — Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

“Just as a little bird cracks open the shell and flies out, we fly out of this shell, the shell of the body. We call that death, but strictly speaking, death is nothing but a change in form.” — Swami Satchidananda

“You will lose someone you can't live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn't seal back up. And you come through. It's like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly — that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.” — Anne Lamott

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.” – Washington Irving

“Our legacy is really the lives we touch, the inspiration we give, altering someone's plan – if even for a moment – and getting them to think, cry, laugh, argue. More than anything, we are remembered for our smiles; the ones we share with our closest and dearest, and the ones we bestow on a total stranger, who needed it right then, and God put you there to deliver.” —Carrie Hamilton

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.” — Laurence Binyon

“Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.” – Matthew 25:21
