Making it into Something New: Quotes about Heartbreak

“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soulmate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”
― Marilyn Monroe

“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, The Painted Drum LP 

“The heart was made to be broken.”
― Oscar Wilde

“Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.”
― Mark Twain

“Well, now
If little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you
Little by little
If suddenly you forget me
Do not look for me
For I shall already have forgotten you

If you think it long and mad the wind of banners that passes through my life
And you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots
That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms
And my roots will set off to seek another land”
― Pablo Neruda, Selected Poems

Shakespeare on Love

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”
― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

“Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.”
― William Shakespeare, Hamlet  

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet 

“The course of true love never did run smooth.”
― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream 

“Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no, it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring barque,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.”
― William Shakespeare, Sonnet 116

“Don't waste your love on somebody, who doesn't value it.”
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

"Love Was My Drug, But That's Not What I Died Of"

Alone, the last moments of light fading in the dusk, you sit, trying to write a book. Like a conjurer, praying for the spirits of another time to speak to you. Silently. Hoping for a call from the one who seems to know your face in the dark. 

You think. You want to believe. The past doesn't matter. Sweet love, return to me. I am your heart and you are my soul. Please remember, love. Remember.

A Love Machine

Hopes and ability


The past; great change, past action. Didn't want to be

 An it.

Love and passionate dreams

transform over unworthiness

Tame situation.

Dreams supported outside forces fed

 ideas in love. Lies.

 New Beginnings-- dreams, creativity, passionate, good--

Welcome change

No more dreams

Nature censures.  Between phase. Action.

A new phase BE 


A past life—often feminine. Your forces. Go.

Tame, have, and go

Unworthiness love,

sacred passion isn't in these.

Without ideas; no universe.

Forces may be necessary; No

Any inspiration in nature forces

Magnitude. Censure.


 Turning away inspires, energizes
Go in magnitude. Just go. The inbetween

Fragile threads between
cut people.
