Words for the Broken-Hearted
Allow me to clarify one thing first: I am not broken-hearted. :D But I was asked to write about broken hearts [o_O] and so I searched for a few “inspiring” quotes to help get me started — help me get in the mood, so to speak. The following are some of the quotes I dug up:
Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting it back together.
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.
Maybe part of loving is learning to let go. – The Wonder Years
Sometimes I wish I were a little kid again, skinned knees are easier to fix than broken hearts.
There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.
Don’t cry when the sun is gone, because the tears won’t let you see the stars. – Violeta Parra
They say that if you love someone you should let them go, but they never say what to do when they don’t come back.
They say that time heals all wounds but all it’s done so far is give me more time to think about how much I miss you. – Ezbeth Wilder
Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never knew.
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us. – Alexander Graham Bell
