These quotes are for my friend A.J. and everyone else who’s been there, felt that:
Love is spiritual training for a broken heart. Your heart will break if you love someone.
~ Polly Young-Eisendrath in The Present Heart
To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced life.
~ Elizabeth Gilbert in Eat, Pray, Love
I tell you this to break your heart, by which I mean only that it break open and never close again to the rest of the world.
~ Mary Oliver
A broken heart is a gift. It means you are human; it means you are capable of opening yourself to someone else, to letting them in, to loving them — then, now and in the future. Your heart will heal and you will love again — better and stronger next time for what you have learned this time. ♥
