If someone doesn’t break your heart, then how will anyone fix it??
I came across this particular quote on TV and it set the wheels inside my head spinning. Yes, when you are in the depths of despair nursing your broken heart, quotes like this definitely lift up your spirits, give you hope and help you move on. But again there are those sad, pathetic quotes which we all love reading no matter how much they make us cry.
So what are the quotes that make you remember that one person, the one that got away?? You know, the quotes that make you think- Oh my God, that is soooo my quote, that is absolutely the state of my heart. You know, the quotes that make you choke up every time you read them. Rings any bells?? The comment box is right below waiting for your opinion.. 🙂
Here are a few of my favourite SAD quotes- from songs, books and my very good friend- Google.
“Sometimes, when you are not getting the love you want, giving makes you think you will.”
― Mitch Albom, The Time Keeper
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones
“My love for you was bulletproof but you’re the one who shot me”
— “Bulletproof Love”, Pierce the veil
“When you drop a glass or a plate to the ground it makes a long crashing sound. When a window shatters, a table leg breaks, or when a picture falls off the wall it makes a noise. But as for your heart, when that breaks, it’s completely silent. You would think as it’s so important it would make the loudest noise in the whole world, or even have some sort of ceremonious sound like the gong of a cymbal or the ringing of a bell. But it’s silent and you almost wish there was a noise to distract you from the pain.”
― Cecelia Ahern
“Losing what I never found”
— Down, Jason Walker
This quote isn’t really similar to the ones above- but it is beautiful all the same:
“An angel in the book of life wrote down my baby’s birth. Then whispered as she closed the book ‘too beautiful for earth’.
Okay so after all the depressing quotes, here’s another spirit-lifter and my all-time favourite:
