Interesting words - Phyllis Rose

In the eyes of the world, there seems to be no right way of handling bereavement. If you are rendered incapable of living by grief -- like Victoria and George Eliot - you are thought morbid. If you smile to hide tears and go on as best you can, you are likely to be thought unfeeling. If you re-marry quickly you are suspected of being insufficiently attached to your first spouse, and if you don't, you are insufficiently committed to the business of living.
