Break up/Moving on/Stay strong Quotes

"And who do you think you are
  Running 'round leaving your scars
  Collecting your jar of hearts.
  And tearing love apart.
  You're gonna catch a cold
  From the ice inside your soul."
-Christina Perri

"You're so afraid to continue what we have, you know something's there, you feel just as much as I do when you touch me, you like it just as much as I do when you kiss me, it's just you're pulling away now because you know that if you don't pull away soon you might find yourself falling in love and I don't think you're prepared for that."

"How could I have been so blind and not seen that you only wanted to be friends? Oh yes, I know why. Because you acted as if we were more than friends. You built me up only to let me fall, and not help me back up again, and here I am on the ground, crying over what could have been."

"My biggest fear is that I will become too comfortable with the idea of being lonely for the rest of my life."

"Everyone keeps telling me to just get over you and to move on, they obviously don't understand just how hard I've already tried. How do you get over someone you love?"

"The higher you build the walls around your heart, the harder you fall when someone tears them down."

"A million words would not bring you back. I know because I've tried. Neither would a million tears. I know because I've cried."

"And it's times like this that I dread...when there's everything to say, and nothing left to be said, and it makes me sad."

"You smile when you feel like crying, you act like you're okay, when you're falling apart inside and you let it go. You move on because there's nothing else you can do."

"I like to believe that one day I'll wake up and not miss him anymore, I'll finally understand that when he broke my heart it was for a reason, one I don't understand yet. But when I do, I'll know that he messed up and not me."

"Sometimes I wish I was a kid again. . . skinned knees are a lot easier to fix than broken hearts."

"Maybe they are right. Maybe I did get my hopes up too high. Maybe I was way over my head. Maybe I am the stupid one for ever thinking that he liked me. But maybe, just maybe, I'm tired of being alone."

"And sometimes your heart takes you to places that can never lead to a happy ending."

"I opened my heart to you. I can't just stand around like a fool waiting for you to be ready."
-Boy Meets World

"Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth."

"All I'd ever wanted was to forget. But even when I thought I had, pieces had kept emerging like bits of wood floating up to the surface that only hint at the shipwreck below."
-Sarah Dressen

"Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but it does pass. Even for me."
-Bella Swan, New Moon

"There are things we don't want to happen, but have to accept. Things we don't want to know but have to learn. And people we can't live without but have to let go."

"I remember when we kissed. I still feel it on my lips. The time you danced with me with no music playing. I remember the simple things. I remember till I cry. But the one thing I wish I'd forget, the memory I wanna forget is goodbye."
-Miley Cyrus

"Even more, I had never meant to love him. One thing I truly knew--knew it in the pit of my stomach, in the center of my bones, knew it from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet, knew it deep in my empty chest--was how love gave someone the power to break you."
-Bella Swan, New Moon

"There are moments in our lives where we find ourselves at a crossroads. Afraid, confused, without a road map. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days. Of course, when faced with the unknown, most of us choose to turn around and go back. But once in a while, people push on to something better, something found just beyond the pain of going it alone, and just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in, or give someone a second chance, something beyond the quiet persistence of a dream, because it's only when you're tested that you discover who you are tested that you discover who you are, that you discover who you can be. The person you can be does exist, beyond the hard work, faith, belief and beyond the heartache, and fear of what lies ahead."
-One Tree Hill

"She's not like that now. She knows better. She knows now that people lie, and promises can be broken as quick as they are made. She understands that she might never be loved, and too quickly good things fly in front of your eyes before you can reach out and grab them. She knows that you can't change or help time, so every now and then it will just run out. There isn't a place for everyone in the world, so if you're standing alone for a while, that's why. Not everything in life comes easy, but when you work the hardest, that's when it's the best. You can't always expect people to care, even when your best friends stab you in the front, don't think for one minute that they didn't already aim for you back. They missed for a reason. She has found out, too soon, that in the end, you are your own best friend. Everyone will be broken at some point in their life and more often that not, it's gonna hurt like hell. But you can't stop it. You can't change your fate. Some things are meant to be and all the pain you go through will end up resulting in something huge. You don't know what it is and when it happens, it will hit you like a ton of bricks."

"Now we've all grown up, gone on, and moved away. Nothing I can do about it, nothing I can say. To bring us back to where we were when life was not this hard. Looking back it all seems so far, so far away."

"We all honor heroes for different reasons. Sometimes for their bravery, sometimes for their daring, sometimes for their goodness, but mostly, we honor heroes because at one point or another, we all dream of being rescued. Of course, if the right hero doesn't come along, sometimes we just have to rescue ourselves."
-Desperate Housewives

"You begin to learn that kisses aren't a contract and presents aren't promises. You begin to accept your defeats with your head up and eyes open. You learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain. After a while, you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much of it. So plant your own garden instead of waiting for somebody else to bring you flowers."

"Nobody can take away your pain, so don't let anyone take away your happiness."

"You can either move on with your life, or dwell on things you can't change, but either way, life does move on with or without."

"The worst loneliness is not to be comfortable with who you are."
-Mark Twain

"The real secret to total gorgeousness is to believe in yourself, have self confidence, and try to be secure in your decisions and thoughts."
-Kirsten Dunst

"It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not."

"Never dull your shine for somebody else."
-Tyra Banks

"I don't think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains."
-Anne Frank

"When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
  When the road you're trudging seems all up hill
  When the funds are low and the debts are high
  And you want to smile, but you have to sigh
  When care is pressing you down a bit
  Rest if you must, but don't you quit
  Life is queer with it's twist and turns
  As every one of us sometimes learns
  And many a failure turns about
  When he might have won had he stuck it out
  Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
  You may succeed with another blow
  Success is failure turned inside out--
  The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
  And you never can tell how close you are
  It may be near when it seems so far
  So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
  It's when things seem worse that you must not quit."
-Don't Quit by Edgar A. Guest

"Things turn out the best for the people who make the best of the way thigns turn out."
-Art Linkletter

"Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you."
-Maori Proverb

"...This is for every woman who knows that it is far better to be single than to have a man that will never understand your worth."
-Ruby Francisco

"In the dark there may be fear but there's also hope."
-Dr. Meredith Grey

"Forgetting is essential to survival. Nature has marvelous ways of protecting you, and forgetting is one. This survival mechanism allows you to partially-but not entirely-forget pain. You will forget unpleasant experiences and remember and replace them with pleasant ones."

"Take a second out to think about this. In your life you search and search for the right person for you. Every time you break up with someone you get one step closer to that person. You should look at moving on as getting closer to meeting the right one."
-Ian Philpot

"I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairytale. I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet. Lead her up the stairwell. This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town. I was a dreamer before you went and let me down. Now it's too late for you and your white horse to come around."
-Taylor Swift

"Music starts playin' like the end of a sad movie. It's the kinda ending you don't really wanna see. 'Cause it's tragedy and it'll only bring you down. Now I don't know what to be without you around. And we know it's never simple, never easy. Never a clean break, no one to save me. You're the only thing I know like the back of my hand. And I can't breathe without you, but I have to breathe without you."
-Taylor Swift

"Somewhere we went wrong. We were once so strong. Our love is like a song, you can't forget it all. And at last all the pictures have been burned. And all the past is just a lesson that we've learned. I won't forget, please don't forget us."
-Demi Lovato

"I throw all of your stuff away
Then I clear you out of my head
I tear you out of my heart
And ignore all your messages

I tell everyone we are through
'Cause I'm so much better without you
But it's just another pretty lie
'Cause I break down
Every time you come around
Oh oh!

So how did you get here under my skin?
I swore that I'd never let you back in
Should've known better than trying to let you go
'Cause here we go go go again

Hard as I try I know I can't quit
Something about you is so addictive
We're falling together, you'd think that by now I'd know
'Cause here we go go go again

You never know what you want
And you never say what you mean
But I start to go insane
Every time that you look at me

You only hear half of what I say
And you're always showing up too late
And I know that I should say goodbye
But it's no use
Can't be with or without you!"
-Demi Lovato

"I go where life takes me, but some days it makes me want to change my direction
Sometimes it gets lonely, but I know that it's only a matter of my perception
I just entered this brand new world
And I'm so openhearted
I know I've got a long way to go but I'm
I'm just getting started

I'm over my head, and I know it, I know it
I'm doing my best not to show it, to show it
Whatever it takes to be what I was meant to be, I'm going to try
Cause I'm living the dream and I know it, I know it
I'm trying my best not to blow it, to blow it
And I know everything will be fine
With me, myself and time."
-Demi Lovato

"This is an SOS don't wanna second guess this is the bottom line it's true. I gave my all for you, now my hearts in two and I can't find the other half. It's like I'm walking on broken glass. Better believe I bled. It's the call I'll never get."
-The Jonas Brothers

"And ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation."
-Kahlil Gibran

"Our relationship, I felt with a heaviness in my chest, was beginning to feel like the spinning movement of a child's top. When we were together, we had the power to keep it spinning, and the result was beauty and magic and an almost child like sense of wonder; when we separated, the spinning began inevitably to slow. We became wobbly and unstable, and I knew I had to find away to keep us from toppling over."

"I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you."

"I've kissed a guy . . . I've kissed guys. I just haven't felt that thing . . . That thing . . . that moment when you kiss someone and everything around you becomes hazy, and the only thing in focus is you and this person. And you realize that that person is the only person you're supposed to kiss for the rest of your life. And for one moment you get this amazing gift. And you wanna laugh and you wanna cry, cause you feel so lucky that you've found it, and so scared that it'll go away all at the same time."
-Drew Barrymore, Never Been Kissed

"I believe that to truly love, is the ultimate expression of the will to live. A heart that truly loves is forever young."

Getting By With a Little Help from Our Friends.

    Here I am creating this blog thinking that I will inspire others and maybe in the process, myself. We all need inspiration when that spark that makes life worth living and drives us through the hard times goes out. And you can only get it through others sharing their fire with you. All these ideas I had about thinking I could inspire myself by myself are completely false I've decided. Because when things happen out of nowhere, when you get your heart broken or lose someone you love or something that makes it feel like you can't breathe, you need INSPIRATIONAL CPR. And you can't give yourself that breath of fresh air you've lost. Someone has to give it to you. Someone has to help you up. Sometimes we need people to pick us up when life pushes us down. And it's not weakness, it's strength in numbers I think. If we had everything we need inside and outside of us, well there would be no point for all the other billions of people on this earth and the ones who have gone before us and will continue to come in the future. We need each other. We can all do things for people that no one else who was ever born can. We progress together. Because life would be so lonely without each other, wouldn't it? When I lose hope in love, in life, in people, I look around me and see that there are people out there who have these things. Who have love. And it gives me faith that maybe someday, even though it seems impossibly far away, I can find that. Look at the people around you and their accomplishments, not to compare or make it feel like you are failing, simply to realize that it's possible for you. That those wishes on stars will come true. That fate and Heavenly Father will lead you when you're ready. So don't ever give up.

But the thing is, once you finally get it right and don't give up, it's the closest thing to perfect."
-Charley Brooke

The pieces of my broken heart are so small that they could be passed through the eye of a needle. I miss you like the sun misses the flower; like the sun misses the flower in the depths of winter. Instead of beauty to direct its light to, the heart hardens like the frozen world your absence has banished me to. I next complete in the city of Paris, I will find it empty and in the winter if you are not there. Hope guides me, that is what gets me through the day and the night. The hope that after you're gone from my sight, it will not be the last time that I look upon you."
-Heath Ledger A Knights Tale

"Accept the things to which fate binds you and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart."

-Fall Out Boy

"The difference between physical attraction and love is the ability to see the same person at their best and at their worst and still desire them without one false step."

"They gave their hearts to each other unconditionally . . . that's what true love really is. It's not this fairy tale life that never knows pain, but it's two souls facing it together and diminishing it with unconditional love."
-One Tree Hill

"I'll take a chance and steal away this movie moment. I'm in deep whenever I'm with you. I'm directing this scene that has you and me forever."

-The Juliana Theory

"Shakespeare once wrote: 'Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds.' When life gets hard, when things change, true love remains the same."

"Through the wind and the rain. Through the laughter and pain. Count on me. When life isn't fair and nobody's there, I will be. In a world of pretenders, I will be your defender. And when it all comes down I'll be the last one standing."
-Emerson Drive

"It's not about who you've been with, it's about who you end up with. Sometimes, the heart doesn't know what it wants until it finds what it wants."-The Office

"The power of a glance has been much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Few people dare now say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only. Nothing is more real than these great shocks which two souls give each other in exchanging this spark."

"Sometimes I look at you, and I wonder . . . do you ever sit here and look at me too? The feeling of losing oneself in somebody's arms, yet at the same time finding oneself there, is irreplaceable. Nothing compares to the intensity of that feeling."

"Some things are meant to happen. Some things are bound to be. Love has a way of making doubting hearts believe. Sometimes in spite of differences, sometimes against all odds, some things are meant to happen. It's written in the stars."

"The world is going to throw us a million reasons why this isn't gonna work out between us, but I'm armed with one reason why it will--I love you."

"I would rather mean everything to someone than something to everyone."

"Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who call you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat or will stay awake just to watch you sleep. Wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you. The one who turns to his friends and says, 'That's her.'"

"It's impossible to fall out of love. Love is such a powerful emotion that once it envelopes you, it does not depart. True love is eternal. If you think that you were once in love, but fell out of it, then it wasn't love you were in. There are no 'exit' signs in love, there is only an 'on' ramp."

"The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway."

-Bella Swan New Moon

"You can't describe the meaning of love. The answer lies within your heart."

-Anna Louise Strong

"Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything . . . you risk even more."

"Love and electricity are one in the same my dear. If you do not feel the jolt in your soul every time a kiss is shared, a whisper is spoken, a touch is felt, then you're not really in love."

"What appeals to me is that love goes on and continues. It doesn't mean that after death it's the end of this person you loved and cherish. Because then you're living in a world of what the hell is the point? . . . I've always thought that there is a beautiful balance within the Mormon religion, where they believe in some very solid answers, but there's a lot left unknown we won't know in this lifetime."

-Pearl Buck

"Cinderella walked on broken glass. Sleeping Beauty let a whole lifetime pass. Belle fell in love with a hideous beast. Jasmine married a common thief. Ariel walked on land for love and life. Snow White barely escaped a knife. It was all about blood, sweat, and tears, because love means facing our biggest fears."

"If times are hard and you are blue
Think of others worrying too.
Just because your trials are many,
Don't think others haven't any.
Life's made up of smiles and tears
Joys and sorrows, mixed with fears

Trouble is pretty well divided
If we could look in every heart,
We'd find that each one has it's part
And those who travel fortune's road
Sometimes carry the biggest load."
