Unrequited Love Quotes
Misery loves company and reading some unrequited love quotes written by other people may help to ease your pain with the knowledge that you are not alone.
- "How many young men, in all previous times of unprecedented steadiness, had turned suddenly wild and wicked for the same reason, and, in an ecstasy of unrequited love, taken to wrench off door-knockers, and invert the boxes of rheumatic watchmen!" Charles Dickens wrote this in chapter 41 of his book "Barnaby Rudge." Most men who have suffered unrequited love can surely relate to this man's suffering. Who hasn't wanted to turn a mailbox or two upside down when the subject of your passion doesn't return the love?
- "Love, unrequited, robs me of my rest. Love, hopeless love, my ardent soul encumbers love, nightmare-like, lies heavy on my chest and weaves itself into my midnight slumbers." Written by William S. Gilbert, this quote sums up the sleepless nights that are endured by the person who loves someone who doesn't love them back.
- "Most of you have been where I am tonight. The crash site of unrequited love. You ask yourself, 'How did I get here? What was it? Was it her smile? Was it the way she crossed her legs, the turn of her ankle, the poignant vulnerability of her slender wrists? What are these elusive and ephemeral things that ignite passion in the human heart?' That's an age-old question. It's perfect food for thought on a bright midsummer's night." Sybil Adelman is the author of that quote that leaves you wondering what exactly is it that makes you want someone who doesn't want you.
- "Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love." Charlie Brown was forever in love with the girl with the red hair, but she wouldn't give him a second look. Being in a one-way love affair can certainly ruin your appetite.
