Heartbreak Quotes


This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soulmate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.

Oh, I wouldn't mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.

Hearts are made to be broken.

De Profundis

Oscar Wilde

De Profundis

Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.

To douchebags!" he said, gesturing to Brad. "And to girls that break your heart," he bowed his head to me. His eyes lost focus. "And to the absolute fucking horror of losing your best friend because you were stupid enough to fall in love with her.

Beautiful Disaster

Jamie McGuire

Beautiful Disaster

Well, now
If little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you
Little by little
If suddenly you forget me
Do not look for me
For I shall already have forgotten you
If you think it long and mad the wind of banners that passes through my life
And you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots
Remember
That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms
And my roots will set off to seek another land

Selected Poems

Pablo Neruda

Selected Poems

He does something to me, that boy. Every time. It’s his only detriment. He steps on my heart. He makes me cry.

Heartbreak    Love    Sad

Was it hard?" I ask.
Letting go?"
Not as hard as holding on to something that wasn't real.

Once you had put the pieces back together, even though you may look intact, you were never quite the same as you'd been before the fall.

Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

The emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it...

At First Sight

Nicholas Sparks

At First Sight

We're staying together," he promised. "You're not getting away from me. Never again.

I won't ever leave you, even though you're always leaving me.

The Time Traveler's Wife

Audrey Niffenegger

The Time Traveler's Wife

Someday you're gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You'll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing...

Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! - I have as much soul as you, - and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you!

Jane Eyre

Charlotte Brontë Brontë

Jane Eyre

I took a chance, I took a shot
And you may think I’m bullet-proof, but I’m not. You took a swing, I took it hard. And down here from the ground I see who you are

Hearts are breakable," Isabelle said. "And I think even when you heal, you're never what you were before".

City of Fallen Angels

Cassandra Clare

City of Fallen Angels

So it’s true, when all is said and done, grief is the price we pay for love.

Perhaps this is what the stories meant when they called somebody heartsick. Your heart and your stomach and your whole insides felt empty and hollow and aching.

Hearts can break. Yes, hearts can break. Sometimes I think it would be better if we died when they did, but we don't.

Love, it never dies. It never goes away, it never fades, so long as you hang on to it. Love can make you immortal

If I Stay

Gayle Forman

If I Stay

Sometimes life has a cruel sense of humor, giving you the thing you always wanted at the worst time possible.

Sugar Daddy

Lisa Kleypas - El diablo no invierno

Sugar Daddy

I know my heart will never be the same
But I'm telling myself I'll be okay

You teach me now how cruel you've been - cruel and false. Why did you despise me? Why did you betray your own heart, Cathy? I have not one word of comfort. You deserve this. You have killed yourself. Yes, you may kiss me, and cry; and wring out my kisses and tears: they'll blight you - they'll damn you. You loved me - what right had you to leave me? What right - answer me - for the poor fancy you felt for Linton? Because misery, and degradation, and death, and nothing that God or Satan could inflict would have parted us, you, of your own will did it. I have no broken your heart - you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine. So much the worse for me that I am strong. Do I want to live? What kind of living will it be when you - Oh, God! would you like to lie with your soul in the grave?

Wuthering Heights

Emily Brontë

Wuthering Heights

Gentle reader, may you never feel what I then felt! May your eyes never shed such stormy, scalding, heart-wrung tears as poured from mine. May you never appeal to Heaven in prayers so hopeless and so agised as in that hour left my lips: for never may you, like me, dread to be the instrument of evil to what you wholly love.

Jane Eyre

Charlotte Brontë Brontë

Jane Eyre

Stab the body and it heals, but injure the heart and the wound lasts a lifetime.

I think you are wrong to want a heart. It makes most people unhappy. If you only knew it, you are in luck not to have a heart.

I mean, at the end of the day, what the hell does it matter who I end up with if it can't be you?

I just wanted to tell you that I understand if you go. It’s okay if you have to leave us. It’s okay if you want to stop fighting.

you
not wanting me
was
the beginning of me
wanting myself
thank you

Sometimes it takes a heartbreak to shake us awake & help us see we are worth so much more than we're settling for.

Did I really want to stay on this road longer, knowing it was only going to end in devastation?

Listen to God with a broken heart. He is not only the doctor who mends it, but also the father who wipes away the tears.

Deep grief sometimes is almost like a specific location, a coordinate on a map of time. When you are standing in that forest of sorrow, you cannot imagine that you could ever find your way to a better place. But if someone can assure you that they themselves have stood in that same place, and now have moved on, sometimes this will bring hope

I don't know you. The only thing I know about you is, you're reading this. I don't know if your happy or not; I don't know whether you're young or not. I sort of hope you're young and sad. If you're old and happy, I can imagine that you'll smile to yourself when you hear me going, he broke my heart. You'll remember someone who broke your heart, and you'll think to yourself, Oh yes, i remember how that feels. But you can't, you smug old git. Oh you'll remember feeling sort of plesantly sad. You might remember listening to music and eating chocolates in your room, or walking along the embankment on your own, wrapped up in a winter coat and feeling lonely and brave. But can you remember how with every mouthful of food it felt like you were biting into your own stomach? Can you remember the taste of red wine as it came back up and into the toilet bowl? Can you remember dreaming every night that you were still together, that he was talking to you gently and touching you, so that every morning when you woke up you had to go through it all over again?

But death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years.

Crown of Midnight

Sarah J. Maas

Crown of Midnight


Time Does Not Bring Relief
Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side,
And last year’s leaves are smoke in every lane;
But last year’s bitter loving must remain
Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide.
There are a hundred places where I fear
To go,—so with his memory they brim.
And entering with relief some quiet place
Where never fell his foot or shone his face
I say, There is no memory of him here!
And so stand stricken, so remembering him.

Collected Poems

Edna St. Vincent Millay

Collected Poems

you're an expert at sorry and keeping the lines blurry

To be rejected by someone doesn't mean you should also reject yourself or that you should think of yourself as a lesser person. It doesn't mean that nobody will ever love you anymore. Remember that only ONE person has rejected you at the moment, and it only hurt so much because to you, that person's opinion symbolized the opinion of the whole world, of God.

The saddest thing about love, Joe, is that not only the love cannot last forever, but even the heartbreak is soon forgotten.

Saying his name stabbed my heart, like someone had ripped through my carefully stitched up world and exposed the infected, pulsing red tissue that I thought was healing.

So I placed my heart under lock and key
To take some time, and take care of me
But I turn around and you're standing here

She hardly ever thought of him. He had worn a place for himself in some corner of her heart, as a sea shell, always boring against the rock, might do. The making of the place had been her pain. But now the shell was safely in the rock. It was lodged, and ground no longer.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
From an Irish headstone

Don't cry when the sun is gone, because the tears won't let you see the stars.

You can’t turn love on and off like a light switch, no matter how hard you try. All you can do is wall it off, one brick at a time, until you’ve created an impenetrable fortress around your emotions. And once that fortress is built, you camouflage it so well that even you can’t see it anymore.

Alix    Heartbreak    Love

You cannot be with someone just because you don’t want to hurt him. You have your own happiness to think about.

There's always a moment when you start to fall out of love, whether it's with a person or an idea or a cause, even if it's one you only narrate to yourself years after the event: a tiny thing, a wrong word, a false note, which means that things can never be quite the same again.

It is strange how often a heart must be broken
Before the years can make it wise.
