Jennifer Salaiz
“Was I bitter? Absolutely. Hurt? You bet your sweet ass I was hurt. Who doesn't feel a part of their heart break at rejection. You ask yourself every question you can think of, what, why, how come, and then your sadness turns to anger. That's my favorite part. It drives me, feeds me, and makes one hell of a story.”
Jennifer Salaiz

Helen Fielding
“When someone leaves you, apart from missing them, apart from the fact that the whole little world you've created together collapses, and that everything you see or do reminds you of them, the worst is the thought that they tried you out and, in the end, the whole sum of parts adds up to you got stamped REJECT by the one you love. How can you not be left with the personal confidence of a passed over British Rail sandwich?”
Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones's Diary

Danielle Pierre

Kathy Lette
“Love is like a tide. When it's in, everything looks beautiful and inviting. Only when love recedes can you see the debris beneath the surface - the old bottles, the rusty prams, the sewage pipes, the bloated cats and dogs weighted down to drown. The man I had once loved so passionately I now saw as weak, gutted like a fish.”
Kathy Lette, To Love, Honour And Betray

Freya North
“Tell me that you refuse to allow me to be so stupid. Tell me that you will not tolerate this relationship being over just when it was on the verge of really taking off.”
Freya North, Fen

Freya North
“I was clinging to all that had been and, in an ideal world, all that we had hoped for. He, he wanted out.”
Freya North, Cat

Koren Zailckas
“My demeanor isn't that of a woman enraged. To see me slumped, glassy-eyed, holding a sandwich someone has cut for me into four "manageable" pieces, a person might tell you I look much more like a woman subdued.”
Koren Zailckas

Sanhita Baruah
“But some relationships aren't meant to last.

They are worthy only till the time the two persons involved have time for each other.

They do not know eternity. They live for the present, the "now". And when distance plays it part, or life turns out to be busy, they fall apart.

And may be that's why they're never termed "LOVE". They simply remain what they were - mere RELATIONSHIPS.”
Sanhita Baruah

John Suckling
“I prithee send me back my heart,
Since I cannot have thine;
For if from yours you will not part,
Why, then, shouldst thou have mine?

Yet now I think on't, let it lie,
To find it were in vain;
For thou hast a thief in either eye
Would steal it back again.

Why should two hearts in one breast lie,
And yet not lodge together?
O Love! where is thy sympathy,
If thus our breasts thou sever?

But love is such a mystery,
I cannot find it out;
For when I think I'm best resolved,
I then am in most doubt.

Then farewell care, and farewell woe;
I will no longer pine;
For I'll believe I have her heart,
As much as she hath mine.”
John Suckling, The Poems of Sir John Suckling

Daniel Handler
“Call me later, you’d said, so I could call you later, at night, and it is those nights I miss you, Ed, the most, on the phone, you beautiful bastard.”
Daniel Handler, Why We Broke Up

James Collins
“One of the odd things about living in an apartment was that you could walk out of someone's life but still have to wait for the elevator. (p.220)”
James Collins, Beginner's Greek

Krystal Sutherland
“Plus, how can she be your soul mate? Didn't you tell me she'd never read Harry Potter? Do you really want to spend the rest of your life with someone like that? I mean, for God's sake, think of your children. What kind of environment would they be growing up in with such a mother?”
Krystal Sutherland, Our Chemical Hearts

Mindy McGinnis
“I didn’t know a living person could hurt you so badly.
When the pain originates with someone who is gone, it’s your own memory that hurts you. Walking through the house, touching things they’ve touched, hearing sounds they heard, wondering what they would’ve thought of one thing or another. This is pain that I know, pain that I can handle, pain that is so much a part of me that if it were removed I would not be whole.
But when it’s someone who’s alive who hurts you, the pain can’t be escaped. The things they’ve touched are still warm because they were just there, the sounds they hear reach your ears too—sometimes their own voice, and it’s excruciating to bear. I know what he thinks about this, that, or the other because I can hear him saying so. But not to me. He doesn’t talk to me anymore.”
Mindy McGinnis, The Female of the Species

Mary E. Pearson
“Words, Kaden. Only lost unsaid words that added up to good-bye.”
Mary E. Pearson, The Beauty of Darkness

John Green
“Breaking up isn't something that gets done to you; it's something that happens with you.”
John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

Mary E. Pearson
“I looked at her, unsure how to answer. Even after everything Mikael had done, every day I had to let go again. He was a habit in my thoughts, not any more welcome than a rash, but I'd find myself thinking of him before I even realized what I was doing. Banishing him from my thoughts was like learning to breathe in a new way. It was a conscious effort.”
Mary E. Pearson, The Beauty of Darkness
