Life always waits for some crisis to occur before revealing itself before its most brilliant. ~ Paul Coelho

For many of us, that means taking inspiration where we can get it – and breakup quotes from famous people (or just plain insightful ones) can provide solace, relief, and understanding.

Just because a relationship ends, does not mean it’s not worth having. ~ Sarah Mlynowski

Some might resonate more than others, and that’s okay. Dealing with a yucky ending rarely feels amazing, even if you’ve chosen conscious uncoupling.

I’ve collected a few of my favorites here – all ready for adding and sharing to social media. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter? All yours.

Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall together. ~ Marilyn Monroe

If you’re struggling to see what good came of your breakup, or, can’t seem to let go of what was, these are perfect to help you reset and regroup.

Tend to your vital heart, and all that you worry about will be solved. ~ Rumi

To say “I love you, but….” is to say, “I did not love you at all”. I say this to you now: I love you, with no beginning, no end. I love you as you have become an extra necessary organ in my body. I love you as only a girl could love a boy. Without fear. Without expectations. Wanting nothing in return, except that you allow me to keep you here in my heart, that I may always know your strength, your eyes, and your spirit that gave me freedom and let me fly. ~ Coco J. Ginger
