Famous Ending Relationship Quotes

The heart was made to be broken. Oscar Wilde

Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Alfred Lord Tennyson

Oh it was meant to be. It just wasn’t meant to last. Kate McGahan

Nothing in the universe can stop you from letting go and starting over. Guy Finley

We had more in common than I thought we did. You were my priority. You were your priority. Kate McGahan

Pleasure of love lasts but a moment, pain of love lasts a lifetime. Bette Davis

Getting even with the person that broke your heart will never give you peace. The only thing that will heal your wounds is believing that God loves you enough to bring someone else into your life to respect you and love you in the way you deserve! Shannon L. Alder

After your breakup, go through life slowly and stay true to what you need in each moment. Lesley Robins

In any important relationship, we must always ask should we stay or leave. Perchance the correct answer exits in the reason for hanging on and the reason for finally moving on. Perchance self sacrifice is required. Conversely, perhaps selfishness is called for as an act of self preservation. Kilroy J. Oldster

Never regret. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience. Victoria Holt

Exiting from any long term relationship comes at great personal expense, which explains why so many people are understandably reluctant to endure the cost of severance. Beginnings and endings are always dramatic and occasionally traumatic. Youthful brio allows us to engage in transformation. As we age, we carefully weigh the spectacle of continuing enduring harrowing situations or seeking melodramatic renovation of our core being. Analysis of the respective cost benefit ratio, consideration of the known versus the unknown, can delay or permanently deter us from altering our environment, leading our persona to become more rigid as we mature. Transformations in life are disconcerting to people who resist change. Kilroy J. Oldster

Celebrate endings for they precede new beginnings. Jonathan Lockwood Huie

How we begin and how we end any relationship is a product of planning, fortuity, and personality. Many enterprises commenced in good faith spiral into confusion, discord, and disarray, generate turmoil and corruption, sunburn the sensitive parties, and conclude in a cesspool of regret and animosity. Kilroy J. Oldster

Friendship often ends in love; but love in friendship never. Charles Caleb Colton

It ended sadly. The kind of ending where you wait together, holding hands and weeping, while off in another room, love slowly dies. Abigail Thomas

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. Marilyn Monroe

None of us knew how terribly these two fine people suffered in secret. I do not think that they ever stopped loving each other, but deep down in their nature they did not belong to one another. Hermann Hesse

If love breaks more than a heart, maybe it’s a sign and time to step out. Anthony Liccione

Ending something doesn’t have to be filled with regret, anger, or negativity. We have experiences and memories that serve a purpose. Omar Lee

Just because a relationship ends, it doesn’t mean it’s not worth having. Sarah Mlynowski

Times and scenes like that put Janie to thinking about the inside state of her marriage. Time came when she fought back with her tongue as best she could, but it didn’t do her any good. It just made Joe do more. He wanted her submission and he’d keep on fighting until he felt he had it. So gradually, she pressed her teeth together and learned to hush. The spirit of the marriage left the bedroom and took to living in the parlor. It was there to shake hands whenever company came to visit, but it never went back inside the bedroom again. So she put something in there to represent the spirit like a Virgin Mary image in a church. The bed was no longer a daisy field for her and Joe to play in. It was a place where she went and laid down when she was sleepy and tired. She wasn’t petal open anymore with him. Zora Neale Hurston

The loss of love is not nearly as painful as our resistance to accepting it is. Tigress Luv

There is still something worse than a breakup, that is keeping the other person in your heart even though you are no longer together. I mean, maybe it’s a test, if you want to understand someone, really want to understand someone, you should try to divide at least once, only once. Wahid Bhat

If a relationship is to evolve, it must go through a series of endings. Christopher Morley

I’m here and I’m there, couldn’t see past the end of my beer, at what was getting near or the silence after the cheers. Mike Skinner

We mistakenly assume that if our partners love us they will react and behave in certain ways the ways we react and behave when we love someone. John Gray

We sleep in spooned positions for most of the night, comforting each other, holding on, not desperately, but with the certainty that we are over, recognizing that our love for each other isn’t enough. We wake and something I’d forgotten stirred in me. I reach for him. Kiss him and let him kiss me back. Exploring each other with a recognition I know will comfort me later. And then he’s inside me and I remember who we are. There is still love and I can dance this liquid dance and let it move me. He stops, pulls himself away from me, taking my breath with him. He lies there and I feel his tears on my flesh. His tears. All this time together and I had no idea he could cry. Ellen Marie Francisco

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

Parting ways with someone or something doesn’t always make sense, so people often create reasons to be angry and resentful, because it weaves a stronger narrative around the process of letting go. That way, they don’t have to take responsibility for their part in it, because, you know. So and so was just a bitch and shit. Madeleine Ryan

Do what you did in the beginning of a relationship and there won’t be an end. Tony Robbins

There was a name. That was all. A name upon a piece of paper. The beginnings of a letter, started but never finished and pushed into a drawer and then forgotten about as all old and unhappy things had been forgotten with the coming of that spring. Yet, after the name had been read, and a false seed of suspicion planted, the sun of their happiness dipped behind a bank of storm clouds and the light which had bathed them faded. It did not fade immediately. Nor in a way which was recognisable at the start. It faded in long silences and crossed arms, in questions which came from nowhere and were answered awkwardly for their strangeness. It faded in kisses avoided and tired sighs, then finally in absences and then all was passed into darkness, though neither knew it until a moment in which they both turned to look for what once they had loved, and found it was gone. T.M Cicinski

To meet, to know, to love and then to part, is the sad tale of many a heart. Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Grudges are for those who insist that they are owed something; forgiveness, however, is for those who are substantial enough to move on. Criss Jami

One of the most unfortunate realities of heartbreak is that our natural responses often do us more harm than good. Guy Winch

It’s better to be healthy alone than sick with someone else. Phil McGraw

Think about any attachments that are depleting your emotional reserves. Consider letting them go. Oprah Winfrey

I mean, if the relationship can’t survive the long term, why on earth would it be worth my time and energy for the short term? Nicholas Sparks

So often the end of a love affair is death by a thousand cuts, so often its survival is life by a thousand stitches. Robert Brault

Poisonous relationships can alter our perception. You can spend many years thinking you’re worthless. But you’re not worthless. You’re underappreciated. Steve Maraboli

Ever has it been that love knows not its own death until the hour of separation. Khalil Gibran

One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered. Michael J. Fox

In any relationship in which two people become one, the end result is two half people. Wayne Dyer

Maybe the most that you can expect from a relationship that goes bad is to come out of it with a few good songs. Marianne Faithfull

You’ll slowly start seeing life beyond the breakup, and eventually life won’t be about the breakup at all. Lesley Robins

Sooner or later we’ve all got to let go of our past. Dan Brown

None of us knew how terribly these two fine people suffered in secret. I do not think that they ever stopped loving each other, but deep down in their nature they did not belong to one another. Hermann Hesse

It was strange, really. A couple months ago, I had thought I couldn’t live without him. Apparently I could. Gabrielle Zevin

Ending something doesn’t have to be filled with regret, anger, or negativity. We have experiences and memories that serve a purpose. Omar Lee

Make it a rule of life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy; you can’t build on it; it’s only good for wallowing in. Katherine Mansfield

It ended sadly. The kind of ending where you wait together, holding hands and weeping, while off in another room, love slowly dies. Abigail Thomas

Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got. Robert Brault

When things aren’t going your way, like during this breakup, you must fight for your own happiness. If you keep looking on the outside for validation, especially from a man, you will lose. Lesley Robins

No partner in a love relationship should feel that he has to give up an essential part of himself to make it viable. May Sarton

I’m here and I’m there, couldn’t see past the end of my beer, at what was getting near or the silence after the cheers. Mike Skinner

For lack of an occasional expression of love, a relationship strong at the seams can wear thin in the middle. Robert Breault

Ending a long term relationship is extremely tough, and recovering from the issues you’ve had in the relationship is even tougher and takes time. Jyoti Patel

How can I let you be a priority in my life, when I’m still an option in your life? Hussein Nishah

Real heartbreak is unmistakable, from the intensity of the emotional pain it causes, to the totality with which it takes over our mind and even our body. We think of nothing else. Guy Winch

Relationships are supposed to make you feel good. Relationships are not supposed to make you feel bad. Laura Bowers

The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships. Anthony Robbins

You’ve felt the grief and sadness along with the anger associated with your breakup. Your body is literally a giant tank filled with emotions, and they need to be released. Andi Dorfman

Relationships end, but they don’t end your life. Steve Martin

Unlike real hurricanes, heartbreak has no eye it offers no reprieve and it leaves no place to take shelter. We thus remain exposed, drenched, and miserable until it passes. Guy Winch

I think a relationship is like a shark. It has to constantly move forward or it dies. Woody Allen

Letting go does not mean you’re giving up, it simply means you’re making a conscious choice to acknowledge that something is out of your control. James A. Murphy

Everybody has bad relationships and, at the end of the day, they are just a great way to set yourself up for a good relationship. Anne Hathaway

Now, defeating kryptonite and getting over a broken heart is incredibly tough. It’s also wildly empowering. But the even bigger victory is finally living your own life again without the constant presence of heartache. Greg Behrendt
