Updated on August 13, 2017

Will is a curious writer, always looking to expand and share his knowledge on more subjects than he can keep track of.

I have been truly touched by the number of visitors who were inspired by my original article, "15 Healing Quotes For A Broken Heart". We have all been there, a broken heart. It does not get better a second, a third, a fourth time...

In had already written Moving on quotes: 15 empowering and inspirational quotes about moving on and being happy, but I felt it was fitting to write a true follow-up to "15 Healing Quotes...".

If you are hurting right now, try really hard to believe that things WILL get better. Trust me, I've been there. You may think you will never get over this... but your heart can take an unbelievable pounding and will still have something left to amaze you with its healing ability.

Always remember there are people there for you. Talk to your family and friends, don't let your pride stand in the way. Reach out. They will help you. Never forget and always believe: love is always out there, sometimes in the most unexpected places.

I hope you enjoy these new quotes. More importantly, I hope they will resonate with you. Give you hope and the power to believe in better things ahead. Please bookmark this page and come back whenever you feel like it. Or share this page on Facebook with a friend who you know could really use a little pick-me-up.


How many times have you had your heart broken?

Pillow, heart & brain

Dear pillow,
I am sorry for all my teardrops...

Dear heart,
I truly regret all those broken pieces!

Dear brain,
You were right.

Not fatal

I remember the day vividly, for how can you forget the day your heart is broken? The funny thing about a broken heart is that it's not fatal. Though you wish in vain that it were, life continues on and you have no choice but to continue on with it. You take the hand that fate has dealt you and you press forward because there is nothing else that can be done.

-- Tracy Winegar


I am proud of my heart. It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken, but somehow it still works.

-- Unknown


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 a simple phrase like "maybe we should just be 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.

I hate love.

-- Neil Gaiman


A break up is like a broken mirror. It is better to leave it broken than hurt yourself trying to fix it.

-- Unknown


To be rejected by someone doesn't mean you should also reject yourself or that you should think of yourself as a lesser person. It doesn't mean that nobody will ever love you anymore. Remember that only ONE person has rejected you at the moment, and it only hurt so much because to you, that person's opinion symbolized the opinion of the whole world, of God.

-- Jocelyn Soriano

Thank you

Stop crying for the person who hurt you. Just smile and say: thanks for giving me chance to find someone better than you.

-- Unknown


At some point of your life, you will become aware that some people can stay in your heart but not in your life.

-- Unknown


Yes I love him. I love him more than anything else in this world and there is nothing that I would like better than to hold on to him forever. But I know it's not for the best. So no matter how much my heart is going to break, I've got to let him go so he can know just how much I love him. Maybe if I'm lucky, he'll come back, but if not, I can make it through this.

-- Unknown

Everything breaks sometime

Maybe I could have loved you better. Maybe you should have loved me more. Maybe our hearts were just next in line. Maybe everything breaks sometime.

-- Jewel

Letting go

The toughest part of letting go is realizing that the other person already did.

-- Unknown

The future

As I look back on all that's happened... growing up, growing together, changing you, changing me - there were times when we dreamed together, when we laughed and cried together. As I look back on those days, I realize how much I truly miss you and how much I truly love you.

The past may be gone forever and whatever the future holds, our todays make the memories of tomorrow. So, it is with all my heart that I send you my love, hoping that you'll always carry my smile with you, for all we have meant to each other and for whatever the future may hold.

-- Unknown


I don't know why they call it a broken heart. It feels like every other part of my body is broken too...

-- Unknown

Love me

You can die of a broken heart -- it's scientific fact -- and my heart has been breaking since that very first day we met. I can feel it now, aching deep behind my rib cage the way it does every time we're together, beating a desperate rhythm: Love me. Love me. Love me.

-- Abby McDonald


I miss your smile, but I miss mine even more.

-- Unknown


There is no remedy for love but to love more.

-- Henry David Thoreau.
