#1. Romantic obsession is my first language. I live in a world of fantasies, infatuations and love poems. Sometimes I wonder if the yearning I've felt for others was more of a yearning for yearning itself. I've pined insatiably and repeatedly: for strangers, new lovers, unrequited flames. While the subjects changed, that feeling always remained. Perhaps, then, I have not been so infatuated with the people themselves, but with the act of longing.

from "Life without Longing," The New York Times (9 February 2019) - Author: Melissa Broder
Tough Love Life quotes by Melissa Broder
#2. Maturity means acknowledging that Romantic love might constitute only a narrow, and perhaps rather mean-minded, aspect of emotional life, one principally focused on a quest to find love rather than to give it; to be loved rather than to love. Children - Author: Alain De Botton
Tough Love Life quotes by Alain De Botton
#3. For a second, I didn't know what to say, because "I love you" didn't seem like enough. It didn't say everything I wanted to say - that she had saved me from this town, from my life, my dad. From myself. How can three words say all that? They can't, but I said them anyway, because I meant them.
I love you, too, L. I think I always have. - Author: Kami Garcia
Tough Love Life quotes by Kami Garcia
#4. I would like to have it for my whole life. You will, the other part of him said. You will. You have it _now_ and that is all your whole life is; now. - Author: Ernest Hemingway,
Tough Love Life quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#5. You - she thought - whoever you are, whom I have always loved and never found, you whom I expected to see at the end of the rails beyond the horizon, you whose presence I had always felt in the streets of the city and whose world I had wanted to build, it is my love for you that had kept me moving, my love and my hope to reach you and my wish to be worthy of you on the day when I would stand before you face to face. Now I know that I shall never find you - that it is not to be reached or lived - but what is left of my life is still yours, and I will go on in your name, even though it is a name I'll never learn, I will go on serving you, even though I'm never to win, I will go on, to be worthy of you on the day when I would have met you, even though I won't.… She had never accepted hopelessness, but she stood at the window and, addressed to the shape of a fogbound city, it was her self-dedication to unrequited love. - Author: Ayn Rand
Tough Love Life quotes by Ayn Rand
#6. The only transformer and alchemist that turns everything into gold is love. The only magic against death, aging, ordinary life, is love. - Author: Anais Nin
Tough Love Life quotes by Anais Nin
#7. If you stop to be kind, you must swerve often from your path. - Author: Mary Webb
Tough Love Life quotes by Mary Webb
#8. I mean, why would someone do this?! Why do people fall in love if it means there is a chance of feeling this way? What the fuck is wrong with humans?! HUMANS ARE FUCKING SICK AND TWISTED! I mean, I get it - it feels good, you know? Being in love, being happy." Her body trembled as the tears fell faster than she could take breaths. "But when that magical rug is ripped out from under you, it takes all the happy and good feelings with it. And your heart? It just breaks. It breaks and it's unapologetic. It shatters into a million pieces, leaving you numb, blankly staring at the pieces because all your free will, all the common sense you once had in your life is gone. You gave up everything for this bullshit thing called love, and now you're just destroyed. - Author: Brittainy C. Cherry
Tough Love Life quotes by Brittainy C. Cherry
#9. Suffering shapes the life force, sometimes into anger, sometimes into blame and self-pity. Eventually it may show us the wisdom of embracing and loving life. - Author: Rachel Naomi Remen
Tough Love Life quotes by Rachel Naomi Remen
#10. You are not your thoughts!! This simple yet powerful statement can greatly change the quality of your life. - Author: Dawn Gluskin
Tough Love Life quotes by Dawn Gluskin
#11. Isn't it interesting that in Acts 11, at the end of verse 26, it says, "The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch." What I find interesting is the simple thought that the Christians didn't name themselves. But rather, they were called (or named) "Christians" by those watching their lives. I wonder if it would be the same today. Could someone look at your life or look at my life and name me a Christian? A humbling thought for sure. - Author: Chris Tomlin
Tough Love Life quotes by Chris Tomlin
#12. Ever since I met you, even my feet stopped belonging to me and became yours because all they ever seem to want to do is travel to wherever you are. My heart only lives and beats when you're where I can see you. Touch you. Kiss your lips and show you the physical equivalent of how deeply I love you. My soul fucking died after I sent that stupid letter and you disappeared. I've spent the last fifteen years walking around as a shell. Not a living, breathing human, but a robot going through the everyday motions. You were, are, and will always be more than my life. More than my beating heart, or any other physical reaction my body has. You're my everything, my fucking essence. I cease to exist unless I'm with you. - Author: Jessie Lane
Tough Love Life quotes by Jessie Lane
#13. How we take it for granted – those trivial conversations; those mundane moments that we think hold no meaning. We never realise how much we rely on the ordinariness of everyday life. When love is gone – when our entire world is gone – only then do we understand those moments are what we live for. - Author: Dianna Hardy
Tough Love Life quotes by Dianna Hardy
#14. The richest person you can marry is not the one with the most money, but with the most love. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Tough Love Life quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#15. A single action can cause a life to veer off in a direction it was never meant to go. - Author: Anita Shreve
Tough Love Life quotes by Anita Shreve

every single night,
For I always missed the one
who was never mine. - Author: Natasha Jain
Tough Love Life quotes by Natasha Jain

#19. My prayer became 'May I find peace ... May I love this life no matter what.' I was seeking an inner refuge, an experience of presence and wholeness that could carry me through whatever losses might come. - Author: Tara Brach
Tough Love Life quotes by Tara Brach
#20. If you know the answer then you have knowledge, but if you know why the answer is right, how to find the answer, and what is the implications of the answer, then you are educated. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Tough Love Life quotes by Debasish Mridha
#21. Jared snaps his fingers. "Yeah, that's it. Rochelle. Jesus, Gunner, you know how to pick 'em. Both of them, sexy as hell and-"

"Jared?" He looks up from his ice. "We best girlfriends now? Gonna chat about our love lives? You know why I hired you, man? I've been surrounded by loudmouth assholes my whole life. You were real quiet during the interview."

"Got it," he says. - Author: Lori K. Garrett
Tough Love Life quotes by Lori K. Garrett
#22. Purity brings freedom, life, love, and a sense of stability and fortification for which every human heart longs. - Author: Eric Ludy
Tough Love Life quotes by Eric Ludy
#23. And as much as I'd like to believe there's a truth beyond illusion, I've come to believe that there's no truth beyond illusion. Because, between 'reality' on the one hand, and the point where the mind strikes reality, there's a middle zone, a rainbow edge where beauty comes into being, where two very different surfaces mingle and blur to provide what life does not: and this is the space where all art exists, and all magic.And - I would argue as well - all love. Or, perhaps more accurately, this middle zone illustrates the fundamental discrepancy of love. Viewed close: a freckled hand against a black coat, an origami frog tipped over on its side. Step away, and the illusion snaps in again: life-more-than-life, never-dying - Author: Donna Tartt
Tough Love Life quotes by Donna Tartt
#24. Love is just like a breeze: it comes, but you should not close your doors to keep the breeze inside. - Author: Rajneesh
Tough Love Life quotes by Rajneesh
#25. The enlightened conservative does not believe that the end or aim of life is competition, or success or enjoyment; or longevity; or power; or possessions. He believes, instead that the object of life is Love. He knows that the just and ordered society is that in which Love governs us, so far as Love ever can reign in this world of sorrows; and he know that the anarchical or the tyrannical society is that in which Love lies corrupt. He has learnt that Love is the source of all being, and that Hell itself is ordained by Love. He understands that Death, when we have finished the part that was assigned to us, is the reward of Love. And he apprehends the truth that the greatest happiness ever granted to a man is the privilege of being happy in the hour of his death. - Author: Russell Kirk
Tough Love Life quotes by Russell Kirk
#26. I can resist everything but love. - Author: Debasish Mridha

Tough Love Life quotes by Leon Brown
#30. As your silence grows; your friendliness, your love grows; your life becomes a moment-to-moment dance, a joy, a celebration. - Author: Rajneesh
Tough Love Life quotes by Rajneesh
#31. If we keep our eyes open and our hearts clear, we can realize that life gives us adequate opportunities to experience both love and hope - Author: John Moriarty
Tough Love Life quotes by John Moriarty
#32. Self-development is a way of Life. Our Self-Development never ends. We are never too young or too old for personal growth.
We have an amazing potential to reach our highest potential, to have truly inspiring careers and loving relationships.
Unfortunately, often we walk through our lives asleep, we let our habits rule us, and find it difficult to change our beliefs. Recognizing the power of our Mind and the power of our Soul, learning the art of Concentration and Love, we are learning to Live with the Flow, not against it.
It is in our nature to learn and grow. For happiness we need to learn to Love, we need to learn to Concentrate and we should keep the flow and energy of inspiration within our lives. - Author: Natasa Nuit Pantovic
Tough Love Life quotes by Natasa Nuit Pantovic
#33. I know that one day he will lose to the waterfall, slip behind its turbulent curtain forever, lost to me like something out of a fairy tale. But in our story, there's no villain, no witch, no fairy godmother, no moral imperative or cautionary conclusion. No happily-ever-after. It just is. It's life. The water keeps flowing as we come and go. We were never forever, Jamie and I. Nothing is in this life. But if you love someone, and are loved by someone, you might find forever after. Whatever and wherever that is. - Author: Julia Whelan
Tough Love Life quotes by Julia Whelan
#34. As we embrace the mystery of love, we see that it contains not an absence of error, but the presence of grace. It contains not the absence of anger or pain, but the presence of forgiveness and healing. Not the absence of disharmony or confusion, but the presence of peace and clarity.
To make a home into a sanctuary, we must be willing to make room in our hearts for one another's limitations, as well as our gifts. For it is here in this sacred space of the home and family, so brimming with life, so full of every emotion available to our hearts, that we learn what it means to love within all the nuances of an intimate relationship. - Author: Shea Darian
Tough Love Life quotes by Shea Darian
#35. Dear to us are those who love us ... but dearer are those who reject us as unworthy, for they add another life; they build a heaven before us whereof we had not dreamed, and thereby supply to us new powers out of the recesses of the spirit, and urge us to new and unattempted performances. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Tough Love Life quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#36. Don't allow yourself to feel guilty about wanting deep and endless love, amazing sex and opportunities that will change your life. Expect these things - work for them and don't ever stop until they're yours. - Author: Jennifer Elisabeth
Tough Love Life quotes by Jennifer Elisabeth

Tough Love Life quotes by Joel Edgerton
#38. The beauty of your life is predicated on the richness of your sensuality. - Author: Lebo Grand
Tough Love Life quotes by Lebo Grand
#39. To the Nightingale


On what secret night in England

Or by the incalculable constant Rhine,

Lost among all the nights of my nights,

Carried to my unknowing ear

Your voice, burdened with mythology,

Nightingale of Virgil, of the Persians?

Perhaps I never heard you, yet my life

I bound to your life, inseparably.

A wandering spirit is your symbol

In a book of enigmas. El Marino

Named you the siren of the woods

And you sing through Juliet's night

And in the intricate Latin pages

And from the pine-trees of that other,

Nightingale of Germany and Judea,

Heine, mocking, burning, mourning.

Keats heard you for all, everywhere.

There's not one of the bright names

The people of the earth have given you

That does not yearn to match your music,

Nightingale of shadows. The Muslim

Dreamed you drunk with ecstasy

His breast trans-pierced by the thorn

Of the sung rose that you redden

With your last blood. Assiduously

I plot these lines in twilight emptiness,

Nightingale of the shores and seas,

Who in exaltation, memory and fable

Burn with love and die melodiously. - Author: Jorge Luis Borges
Tough Love Life quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#40. If you want to conquer lust for wealth, love selflessness and sparing way of life. - Author: Vladimir Aleksandrovich Antonov
Tough Love Life quotes by Vladimir Aleksandrovich Antonov
#41. Ashima feels lonely suddenly, horribly, permanently alone, and briefly, turned away from the mirror, she sobs for her husband. She feels overwhelmed by the thought of the move she is about to make, to the city that was once home and is now in its own way foreign. She feels both impatience and indifference for all the days she still must live, for something tells her she will not go quickly as her husband did. For thirty-three years she missed her life in India. Now she will miss her job at the library, the women with whom she's worked... She will miss the country in which she had grown to know and love her husband. Though his ashes have been scattered into the Ganges, it is here, in this house and in this town, that he will continue to dwell in her mind. - Author: Jhumpa Lahiri
Tough Love Life quotes by Jhumpa Lahiri
#42. My life is fair game for anybody. I spent an unhappy, penniless childhood in Brooklyn. I had to slug my way up in a town called Hollywood where people love to trample you to death. I don't relax because I don't know how. I don't want to know how. Life is too short to relax. - Author: Susan Hayward
Tough Love Life quotes by Susan Hayward
#43. Measure your life in love. - Author: Jonathan Larson
Tough Love Life quotes by Jonathan Larson
#44. While we are seeking for pure love, good life, and a reason to live,
We sometimes forget key things in life.
And that is the ability to see what is the difference between
What is wrong and what is right. - Author: The Eldest
Tough Love Life quotes by The Eldest
#45. I love dive bars, old movie theaters, live music and good food. The simplest things in life for me are the most important. - Author: Tanya Fischer
Tough Love Life quotes by Tanya Fischer
#46. To you I speak with much hesitation about suffering. . . . But there is an introduction to suffering which comes with the birthpains of Love. And in such suffering one finds for the first time how deep and profound is the nature and meaning of life. And in such suffering one sees, as if one's eye were newly opened upon a blinding light, . . . And there too is suffering, but there, above all, is peace and victory. - Author: Thomas Kelly
