Lost love has been a big deal for humans since humans have been afraid of … anything. It’s the thing that makes us obsessively check our phones for new texts and the thing that makes us force ourselves to wait a little while to respond, in case they think we’re “desperate.” Lost love can be a part of life, part of our mistakes, part of an accident, but it always feels tragic to us.
Quotes about lost love don’t have to be as tragic as our feelings, however. This is a short collection of some sad quotes about losing your love, some funny ones, and some that might help you deal with the loss. Sometimes, knowing how to cope with lost love is the motivation we need to find love that will last.
Sad Quotes About Lost Love
Sad quotes can be comforting if they speak the truths that we feel already. We don’t want to get you down. We want to help you get through things and help those who need it by showing you that other people have felt the exact same things.

Of many far wiser than we-

Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
