heartbreak quotes

“There are many forms of heartbreak and many different things that will inevitably break your heart.  Fortunately, all heartbreak, no matter what kind, takes the same three basic ingredients for mending…time, love and momentary forgetting.”  Stephanie Schneider

“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” ― Louise Erdrich

“Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.” ―Mark Twain

“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...” 
 Elizabeth Gilbert

“”Finding a soul mate isn’t rubbish.” I rebutted “A soul mate just means finding someone at the same time they find you, skipping the initial peacock dance all together and moving onto more important things, like life.  Heartbreak, on the other hand, is the villain of all normal fairytales.”  Stephanie Schneider 

“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.” ― Charlotte Brontë

“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?” 
 Emily Brontë

“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. ” ― Colleen Houck

“When your heart is broken, there is no mercy in sight from its pain.  For while you work, you think of them, while you play you miss them, and when you sleep you dream of them.  No, the only hope in sight lies in building your own self back up from the brokenness, like a phoenix from the ashes; to distract yourself with your own beauty for a while instead of that of someone else’s.  Then, as you fly, another lover will long for you…but this time you will be strong enough to choose with power whether to land or keep to flight.” Stephanie Schneider 

“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?” ― Nick Hornby

“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” ―Elizabeth Gilbert

“If I love you more than you love me, I’m as good as dead. Yet I can’t make myself take it back. I can’t just walk away from you, because every time you pass by me without smiling, without touching my hand, or at least making eye contact, it feels like I’m dying inside.” ― Rachel Vincent

“I was a naive thing as he chased me around the may pole.  It was fun for a while, and nice to be chased until suddenly I realized I had gotten tangled up in it, stuck, as he ran cheerfully away.” Stephanie Schneider
