Sad Love Quotes

Sad Love

When all you want to do is cry

When all you can do is lie

When all you want to do is drink

Love is not always beautiful or thrilling. Some kinds of love are sad. It may be because the person you love does not love you back, or is in love with someone else. Perhaps you cannot tell them how you feel because you are in a relationship. When love is sad, these quotes may help you put things into perspective.

The sadness of love can come from the fact that it is unrequited, or where once there was love now there are only two strangers and a broken heart. These sad love quotes capture the mood and feeling of love's end, or its failure to start.

Smiling at grief. -- Shakespeare, Twelfth Night,
