Sometimes, love hurts. The abrasions of love have inspired many a great writer. From Shakespeare to Jane Austen, writers have at some time or the other dwelt upon the anguish called love. A few of the following quotes bring out the heartaches caused by love in the most striking manner.
One does not love a place the less for having suffered in it unless it has all been suffering, nothing but suffering.
If love is so important to have that one doesn’t want to lose it, why is it when we find true love we often don’t notice it?
When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving oneself, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.
What will survive of us is love.
Love involves a peculiar unfathomable combination of understanding and misunderstanding.
It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.
Victor M. Garcia Jr.
Love is like the truth, sometimes it prevails, sometimes it hurts.
Where there is love, there is pain.
Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love; it is the faithless who know love’s tragedies.
Sir James M. Barrie
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.
Francois de La Rouchefoucauld
There is only one kind of love, but there are a thousand imitations.
The courses of true love never did run smooth.
Of all pains, the greatest pain,
Is to love, and to love in vain.
Why is it that we don’t always recognize the moment love begins, but we always recognize the moment it ends?
Marie E. Eschenbach
We don’t believe in rheumatism and true love until after the first attack.
