201 Broken Heart Quotes To Help You Forget The Past & Move On


Heart Touching Quotes About Broken Hearts To Comfort And Strengthen You


“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”

– Louise Erdrich

Broken Heart Quotes For Lovers

Heart Broken Quotes To Make You Strong: Heartbreak is a part of life. Whether we like it or not, we are all going to experience it at some point in our lives. Experiencing a heartbroken situation is highly painful to most people unless you are spiritually elevated and a very strong person mentally. Breakup with your lover, untimely demise of a loved one, and betrayal of a friend will cause your heart to feel as if it has been shattered to pieces.

Yes, a broken heart can hurt for quite some time. But as long as you still have friends and are able to maintain a positive outlook towards life, your broken heart will heal. If you’re searching for a quote that puts your feelings into words – you won’t find it. You can learn every language and read every word ever written – but you’ll never find what’s in your heart.

How can you? Because words being superficial in nature can never describe the depth and intensity of emotions that our hearts always experience. However, we think with these beautiful & emotional heartbroken quotes you can correlate your pain at least to some extent.

You will also find some encouraging quotes that can empower you to let go and move on with your life. So accept the reality, live your life, and face the present crisis boldly. You have all the power to conquer all heartbroken situations which life has thrown over you. Just be patient and never forget your inner divinity.


I have met so many heartbroken men. It’s a catastrophe. Women are easily overcome by the process that happens when a boy falls in love and becomes a man. Men’s hearts are so often broken. Still, you have to leave your broken heart in a place where- when the woman who knows how to see what a gift is, sees it- your broken heart can be picked up again. I think that it takes a very strong woman (inner strength) to be able to handle a man falling in love with her, without morphing into a monster (the process is a very potent process, it can poison a woman, really). A woman thinks she wants a man to fall in love with her for all the perks that come with it; but when a real love really does happen, when a real man shows his manhood; it’s often too powerful a thing to endure without being poisoned. Hence, all the heartbroken men. But, I do believe that there are strong women in the world today. A few. But there are. You could say, that the mark of a real woman, is a woman who can handle a man – a man falling in love with her. A woman who can recognize that, and keep it with her.

– C. JoyBell C.

Broken Heart Quotes And Sayings To Encourage Everyone

It’s during the toughest times of your life that you’ll get to see the true colors of the people who say they care about you. Notice who sticks around and who doesn’t, and be grateful to those who leave you, for they have given you the room to grow in the space they abandoned, and the awareness to appreciate the people who loved you when you didn’t feel lovable. Bottom line: Be ok with giving the gift of your absence to those who do not appreciate and respect your presence.

Broken Heart Quotes For True Lovers To Ease Their Pain

Some of the kindest souls I know have lived in a world that was not so kind to them. Some of the best human beings I know, have been through so much at the hands of others, and they still love deeply, they still care.

The brokenhearted are the best empaths of all.

But after one such love, can love no more.
