If it’s going to make you happy then you know you’re going to reject it and push at it and pull and morph it out of shape until it breaks because you just can’t stand the thought of letting it fill and spill into you and make you complete and then leave you breathless and empty again.
Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.
– Charles “Tremendous” Jones
“It is trite to speak of a broken heart. Hearts are not broken; they continue to beat, the blood still courses, even in the bitter after-days of betrayal. But something is broken when pain beyond words is suffered; some connection that formerly existed with light and hope and bright mornings is severed, and can never be restored.”
– Michael Cox, The Meaning of Night
“Nay, not without a wound in the spirit shall I leave this city… Too many fragments of the spirit have I scattered in these streets, and too many are the children of my longing that walk naked among these hills…” — Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
