Giving lots of affection and getting none in return hurts more than you think.
I wish I could give you my pain just for one moment. Not to hurt you, but so that you could finally understand how much you hurt me.
Surely the saddest thing in the world is falling out of love - if once one has ever fallen in.
The two qualities which chiefly inspire regard and affection - that a thing is your own and that it is your only one.
Music I heard with you was more than music, and bread I broke with you was more than bread. Now that I am without you, all is desolate; all that was once so beautiful is dead.
I have not broken your heart - you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine.
You think I have no feelings, and that I can do without one bit of love or kindness; but I cannot live so: and you have no pity.
If a man can be properly said to love something, it must be clear that he feels affection for it as a whole, and does not love part of it to the exclusion of the rest.
And he that shuts out love, in turn shall be shut out from love, and on her threshold lie howling in outer darkness.
Within my heart is lurking suspicion, and base fear, and shame and hate; but above all, tyrannous love sits throned, crowned with her graces, silent and in tears.
There must be millions of people all over the world who never get any love letters... I could be their leader.
True hearts have eyes and ears, no tongues to speak; They hear and see, and sigh, and then they break.
