"14-02 & Heart Break"



Looking for a photo to put up on my Valentine day post I stumbled across some quotes about love and heartbreak.  A few of them hit home, so I went scouting for some more and this is what I found.....

 

It takes a minute to like someone, and hour to love someone, but to forget someone takes a life time.

“Love is just the slowest form of suicide. it numbs you inside and all you have to do is pull the trigger.” (O-Y-O, On Your Own!)

Love And Get Hurt, Get Hurt And Learn, Learn And Love Again.

Love is hard to get, 
but harder to let go

If you never get your heart broken,
you'll never learn to love

Once upon a time I was falling in love,
but now I’m falling apart.

If you have it [love], you don't need to have anything else, and if you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have.

Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it's better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting it back together

 You love to hate the one who loves the one you hate to love.

The heart was made to be broken.

When the heart grieves over what is has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left.

The saddest thing in the world, is loving someone who used to love you.

Ever has it been said that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.

The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.

Love: The irresistable desire to be irresistibly desired.

 

I know we can all relate to some of these quotes. The one quote that killed it for me is this:

The hardest thing to do is watch someone
you love, love someone else
.

Wow!

i can relate to all these....... and this is what i'd be reading on the so called vals day...... Love really sucks...... as my fave Love quote says

"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. ”

Dabizniz said...

I agree that quote kills it

CaramelD said...

Thank you very much Sirus!!! You have now made me more depressed than I was when I woke up this moring!!!!

How far this woman? It's only the first of the freaking month and you come in guns blazing!!!!!

archiwiz said...

Ain't this a load of sadness. Why now?

Personally, I believe and know, that love is more than feelings.

And I agree with the last quote. In an especially selfish way.

doug said...

Sorry to go so way of the concensus here but I absolutely HATE quotes like this one:

If you have it [love], you don't need to have anything else, and if you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have.

And hopefully I shall write about my feelings on this topic at my earliest convenience.

On a lighter note though, this quote:

The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.

reminds me of something Master Yoda said in Star Wars (yah I know I'm a geek...bite me!):


"Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose"

Hehehe! Have a great week ~Sirius~

doug said...

[TYPO ALERT] *way off the consensus

Uzezi said...

love love love. there are much more that can be said.

~Sirius~ said...

@ Just T.....We share the same feelings about Vals day....but like you said, what's life without love...Nice to know you haven't abandoned me....take your time and settle in love.
@ Funms ....WOW! that quote is something else.....very true.
@ Ice Queen....LOL.I know right...sounds more like lust than love.
@ Dabizniz.....I was going to say you have no idea, on second thoughts, I remembered- you actually do in a funny way

~Sirius~ said...

@ Caramel Sorry Sweetie!!! Didn't mean too :-(, It's the month of the heart- so i'm following it.
@ Archiwhiz, well.....Didn't mean to spoil the mood.....*cough cough, care to enlighten/share your selfish reasoning?
@ Doug...Feel free.......And the whole geek and starwars thing....Nice, some of us too are geeks at heart :-). Love your own quote.....Have a fantastic week too.
@ Uzezi.....I just think it's mis diagnosed, mis understood and over rated!

"Love And Get Hurt, Get Hurt And Learn, Learn And Love Again."

This applies directly to my situation in the last one year and sometimes you wish you never met someone so you never hurt. When you learn to love again after all the hurt, its usually beautiful because you thank God for the hurt he caused which makes you appreciate the person youre learning to love all over again. Hurt hurts but sometimes, hurt is good.

That's some true talk!

AlooFar said...

mike said...

THEM QUOTES MAKE SENSE. TOO MUCH.

Miss Definitely Maybe said...

love has its good and amazing sides as well
funny though
that even though i have been hurt a few times
I would not have traded those relationships for the world,

Lolia said...

Omg so I completely agree with that last one...It's so so hard...Even in the simplest of ways like when you think your mummy is being nicer to your friends than you...it doesn't even have to be in a relationship...

Meanwhile just to add to the quoting business:

"If I gave my heart to you, then I'd have none and you'd have two"

Tigeress said...

Waow!!! I love! It reminds me of a love peom book my bf gave me (about 11/12years ago).

I really like the last one "The hardest thing to do is watch someone you love, love someone else." I can't imagine how painful that can be. I hope none of us go thru this with husband/wife.

"The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost."

And that is what sets you free at the end. Word.

Many of these quotes carry harsh truths as well as harsh lies.

I believe its a collection from a bunch of bitter folks as well as happy ones...
