Separating from a loved one is one of the most painful experiences of life but life doesn’t stop and one needs to pick all those pieces together and move on. There are few feelings which never get enough words but Haruki Murakami penned down some quotes which may let you express your feelings and even help you mend your broken heart and look forward at tomorrow with a positive approach.
1. That one person
“If you remember me, then I don’t care if everyone else forgets.”
2. Love will always find its way.
“You can keep as quiet as you like, but one of these days somebody is going to find you.”
3. The heart knows it all.
“The human heart is like a night bird. Silently waiting for something, and when the time comes, it flies straight toward it.”
4. The act and art of loving.
“A person learns how to love himself through the simple acts of loving and being loved by someone else.”
5. That kind of love.
“What matters is deciding in your heart to accept another person completely. When you do that, it is always the first time and the last.”
6. Move on
“Some wounds to the heart will probably never heal. But we cannot simply sit and stare at our wounds forever.”
7. The unsatiable hunger
“I was always hungry for love. Just once, I wanted to know what it was like to get my fill of it – to be fed so much love I couldn’t take any more. Just once.”
8. Look for hints.
“Whenever she felt like crying, she would instead become angry–at someone else or at herself–which meant that it was rare for her to shed tears.”
9. The once-in-a-lifetime kind of love.
“If you can love someone with your whole heart, even one person, then there’s salvation in life. Even if you can’t get together with that person.”
10. Sometimes words can’t do justice.
“It is not that the meaning cannot be explained. But there are certain meanings that are lost forever the moment they are explained in words.”
