Love lies in those unsent drafts in your mailbox. Sometimes you wonder whether things would have been different if you’d clicked ‘Send’.
There is a distinct, awful pain that comes with loving someone more than they love you.
Part of me aches at the thought of her being so close yet so untouchable.
It is better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.
Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing.
“But grief makes a monster out of us sometimes and sometimes you say and do things to the people you love that you can’t forgive yourself for.”
It’s time to say goodbye, but I think goodbyes are sad and I’d much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure.
First, accept sadness. Realize that without losing, winning isn’t so great.
If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars.
The saddest thing in the world, is loving someone who used to love you.
Nobody understands another’s sorrow, and nobody another’s joy.
If you love me, let me know. If not, please gently let me go.
“I write you a letter that begins
With I love you and ends with I love you and
Somewhere in the middle is one goodbye for
“I’ll love you even when I can’t”
“I’ll love you even when I shouldn’t”
“The growth of my love story had been gradual but my success had always existed and both coupled together formed a deadly combination that was detrimental to our love. I wanted people to love me. She wanted them to leave her alone.”
“It is far more painful to awake from a beautiful slumber and – in that brief period when the continuity of life is still lost to you – to reach across the bed for a hand that is not there.”
“I don’t care. I don’t care”. He was crying now, crying so hard he could barely breathe.”
“The actuality that the heart does not want to feel, doesn’t negate the certitude that it once felt and will still feel.”
“The bottom line is, Gat bailed when I got hurt.
The bottom line is, it was only a summer fling.
The bottom line is, he might have loved Raquel.
We lived too far apart, anywway.
I never got an explanation.
I just know he left me.”
This is the problem with getting attached to someone. When they leave, you just feel lost.
Don’t give special place to any one in your heart. Its easy to give that place but it hurts more when they don’t know the value of that place
I remember all those crazy things you said, you left them running through my head. You are always there, you are everywhere. But right now I wish you were here.
If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay.
What do you do when the only one who can make you stop crying is the one who is making you cry?
It’s hard to wait around for something you know might never happen, but it’s even harder to give up when it’s everything you want.
It’s sad when you realize you aren’t as important to someone as you thought you were
Some of us think holding on makes us strong but sometimes it is letting go.
Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it
“Love is an expression and assertion of self-esteem, a response to one’s own values in the person of another. One gains a profoundly personal, selfish joy from the mere existence of the person one loves. It is one’s own personal, selfish happiness that one seeks, earns, and derives from love.”
“‘Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.”
“I remember a time when everybody I loved hated me because I hated them. – Letter to Stuart Sutcliffe circa 1960”
“Love cures people — both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it.”
“People who are not in love fail to understand how an intelligent man can suffer because of a very ordinary woman. This is like being surprised that anyone should be stricken with cholera because of a creature so insignificant as the comma bacillus.”
“Two separate, distinct personalities, not separate at all, but inextricably bound, soul and body and mind, to each other, how did we get so far apart so fast?”
“I self destruct every relationship so that i don’t get hurt… but in truth i just hurt myself worse in the long run..”
There would be nothing sadder than not knowing how to smile, so smile even though it is sad, as long as you can.
The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.
Sometimes I wish I were a little kid again, skinned knees are easier to fix than broken hearts.
Sometimes you may feel that you are weak and therefore have given up but at times it only shows that you are strong enough to let go of things.
In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing.
Love is like a puzzle. When you’re in love, all the pieces fit but when your heart gets broken, it takes a while to get everything back together.
Don’t worry about losing. If it is right, it happens – The Main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.
One day you’ll love me as I love you. One day you’ll think of me as I think of you. One day you’ll cry for me as I cry for you. One day you’ll want me, but I won’t want you.
I wish I had the guts to walk away & forget about what we had, but I can’t because I know you won’t come after me & that’s what hurts the most.
There is one pain, I often feel, which you will never know. It’s caused by the absence of you.
There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with.
When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
I didn’t ask for it to be over, but then again, I never asked for it to begin. For that is the way it is with life, as some of the most beautiful days come completely by chance. But even the most beautiful days eventually have their sunsets.
When you’re happy you don’t always have to be laughing, and when you’re sad you don’t have to be crying; sometimes it’s the opposite. You laugh when you’re the most upset. Freddie Highmore
When you think your first falling in love, just then you realize your falling out of love.
