Break Up Quotes, Sayings, Images

Some of the best break-up quotes reflect very painful sentiments. There is nothing that can console a broken heart; only time can lessen the pain and suffering.

The pain of losing a true love is something that you carry to your grave. Still, these quotes about breaking up attempt to soothe an aching heart and help you get a sense of reality.
