Unrequited Love Quotes - Quotes about Love Unreturned

Unrequited love quotes ...

... convey a desire for something we cannot have. This is unreciprocated love which is not love at all, but a yearning to experience a deeper aspect of the self. We yearn to feel complete, to be in relationship with someone who complements our soul, inspires us and brings out the best in us. We look for in others what we seek within ourselves.

Although love unreturned can drive you to despair, trust that somewhere out there, someone is waiting just for you.

~ Laura Ramirez

Oh lovelorn heart, give o'er—
Cease thy vain dreams of beauty's warmth—forget
The face thou longest for.


If you love someone, let them go. If they return to you,
it was meant to be. If they don't, their love was never
yours to begin with.


Unrequited Love Quotes

like a body without a soul.

~Sholem Aleichem

Perhaps a great love is never returned.

Get Back Your Lost Love

I know I am but summer to your heart,
And not the full four seasons of the year.

~Edna St. Vincent Millay

Loving can cost a lot but not loving always
costs more, and those who fear to love often
find that want of love is an emptiness that robs
the joy from life.

~Merle Shan

Made for this soul, to move it.
