Separations are difficult, and also hopefully, these unfortunate love
quotes can help you to keep in mind the better times. Permit these sad
quotes to motivate you to see a light at the end of the tunnel and also push you past the suffering.

Despair is an all-natural part of life that's normally connected with specific
experiences of loss or pain.
