Heartbreak

It is a curious sensation: the sort of pain that goes mercifully beyond our powers of feeling. When your heart is broken, your boats are burned: nothing matters any more. It is the end of happiness and the beginning of peace.

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish writer.

It isn't enough for your heart to break because everybody's heart is broken now.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.

Don't waste time trying to break a man's heart; be satisfied if you can just manage to chip it in a brand new place.

Helen Rowland (1875-1950) American journalist and humorist.

How else but through a broken heart may Lord Christ enter in?

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish poet and dramatist.

A broken heart is a very pleasant complaint for a man in London if he has a comfortable income.

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish writer.
