Broken hearts die slowly.

~Langston Hughes

Where there is love, there is pain.

Spanish Proverb

I hold it true, what e'er befall;
I feel it , when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

~Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Lie still, lie still, my breaking heart
My silent heart, lie still and break.

~Christina Rossetti

Reading love hurts quotes can get a little self-defeating after awhile. Although you need to let yourself feel the pain of lost love, how about letting yourself be open to the idea of finding a friend. Start just with a little friendship and see how things progress. If you find you're not ready, then wait a little longer, but you may find that you're ready to let love find you again.

Murmur, a little sadly, how love fled.

~William Butler Yeats

Without love our life is ... a ship without a rudder ...
like a body without a soul.

~Sholem Aleichem

"Tis not love's going hurts my days,
But that it went in little ways.

~Edna St. Vincent Millay

Love Hurts Quotes

The kiss of virgins, first-fruits of the bed,
Soft speech, smooth touch, the lips, the maidenhead:
These, and a thousand sweets, could never be
So near, or dear, as thou wast once to me.

~Robert Herrick

The man is quickened so with grief,
He wanders god-like or like thief
Inside and out, below, above,
With relief seeking lost love.

~Robert Graves
