The heart was made to be broken
If your love does not work with that person,
it just means that someone else loves you more.
I don’t know what to do now that we’re apart;
I don’t know how to live without the other half of my heart.
Now that I have loved so purely and deeply,
I have realized how lonely I really am.
There is nothing sadder in this life
than to watch someone you love walk away
after they have left you.
To watch the distance between
your two bodies expand until there is
nothing left but empty space… and silence.
Watching you walk out of my life
hasn’t made me bitter or cynical about love,
but rather, it has shown me that if I wanted so badly
to be with the wrong person,
how beautiful it will be when the right one comes along.
The heart was made to be broken.
Love anything and your heart will be wrong
and possibly broken.
If you want to make sure of keeping it intact
you must give it to no one, not even an animal.
Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries;
avoid all entanglements.
Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness.
But in that casket
- safe, dark, motionless, airless
- it will change.
It will not be broken;
it will become unbreakable,
To love is to be vulnerable.
A relationship is like a train.
If one passes,
then the next one will come.
I’m sure and if you get off the train,
you’ll realize that everything is the same.
Relationships are like crystals,
you don’t realize how much you love it until it breaks.
Sometimes I wish I had never met you because
then I could go to bed at night not knowing
there was someone like you out there.
A heart breaking isn’t always as loud as a bomb exploding..
Sometimes it can be as quiet as a feather falling..
And the most painful thing is, no one really hears it, except you..
”.....You know, it's not even that. I was, I was fine until I read your fucking book. It stirred shit up, you know? It reminded me how genuinely romantic I was, how I had so much hope in things, and, now it's like I don't believe in anything that relates to love. I don't feel things for people anymore. In a way, I put all my romanticism into that one night and I was never able to feel all this again. Like, somehow this night took things away from me and I expressed them to you, and you took them with you. It made me feel cold, like your love wasn't for me.” ----Celine, Before Sunset
Love one another and you will be happy. It's as simple and as difficult as that.
Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.

Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all of the time, made new.
---- Ursula K. Le Guin
You know you're in love when you don't want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
I don't think you can keep someone you truly love at arm's length on purpose, they'll always end up in your arms.

Love unlocks doors and opens windows that weren't even there before.

Before I met my husband, I'd never fallen in love. I'd stepped in it a few times.

Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration.

Love is not a matter of what happens in life. It's a matter of what's happening in your heart.
---- Ken Keyes
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Infatuation is when you think he's as sexy as Robert Redford, as smart as Henry Kissinger, as noble as Ralph Nader, as funny as Woody Allen, and as athletic as Jimmy Conners. Love is when you realize that he's as sexy as Woody Allen, as smart as Jimmy Connors, as funny as Ralph Nader, as athletic as Henry Kissinger and nothing like Robert Redford - but you'll take him anyway.
