Facts You Should Know When Choosing Quotes For Sympathy

When someone dies, people often give greeting cards that contain condolences and prayers. However, while these cards may adequately send along a person's sympathies, you may wish to write down or choose your own condolences to express better your sentiments. As you choose sympathy quotes for the occasion, however, you may want to remember some basic criteria to make your quest more successful.

For example, it might be advisable for you to remember your own feelings of regret and sadness as you make your selections. Sometimes people choose impersonal cards that fail to express their emotions adequately. If you are genuinely sorry, you can let this sorry guide you in your quest to find suitable expressions to give to someone else in his or her time of mourning.

Likewise, you might recall the religious affiliation of your friend or loved one when considering sympathies. If this individual abides by a certain faith, you may write down a prayer or choose a passage from the holy text of that faith. This choice might provide your loved one or friend with hope for the future or strength to move on with his or her life.

When you are selecting sentiments to send, it generally might be advisable to avoid any that are humorous. Many people in mourning do not wish to laugh or act lighthearted when they are missing someone whom they loved. Your card or written expressions might do well to avoid funny jokes or puns.

The same ill advice may follow when you send notes that remind the recipient of the nature of the loved one's passing. If the death was violent or sudden, for example, the survivors may wish to get past that information in order to heal. Reminding them of how their relative or friend died could be detrimental.

These strategies could allow you to choose quotes that are suited for a funeral or sending condolences. As you consider what expressions to convey, you might remember some basic tips. These criteria may help you avoid offending someone.
