15 Classic Quotes About Love That Prove We All Know The Same Heartache


Love is a wonderful feeling, and no one is alien to it.

We all fall in love. Some carry this feeling through life, some experience the pain of losing a loved one and some have to cope with unrequited love.

Either way, each of us considers this feeling real, and we believe it is different from simple obsession or affection.

Who is not a stranger to love as much as the famous writers who have told us dozens of love stories in their books?

1. Stephen King And Tabitha King

— Stephen King for Fox News

On January 2, 1971, Stephen married Tabitha, whom he met while studying at university. She was a novice writer, too.

But, she threw away her endeavors for the sake of her husband, and she decided to devote herself to family.

Tabitha is King's only muse.

She is his best advisor and critic. When Stephen began another period of "disbelief in himself as a writer," she was the one who helped him, inspired him and supported him in difficult times.

King admitted afterward he owed his brilliant writing career to his wife.

It was Tabitha who saved him from drug and alcohol addiction. The writer repeatedly thanks his wife in his works.

Without Tabitha, Stephen would have never finished his novel "Carrie," which has made him so popular.

—"The Gunslinger"

— "Pet Semetary"

— "Dolores Claiborne"

— "Four Past Midnight"

— "11/22/63"

From the words he says to the books he reads, one can learn the importance of honesty and sincerity in relationships.

Plus, we understand the most important things are those that can't be bought.

2. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry And Consuelo Sandoval

— Alain Vircondelet, a Saint-Exupéry biographer

We find so many conflicting and controversial facts in the story of Antoine and Consuelo's relationship, and it is sometimes impossible to understand which of them are true or false.

Exupéry's biographers described him as a man of kind soul, faithful and charming. At the same time, his wife was described as a hysterical person, indifferent to the fate of her brave husband.

But when we read the memoirs of Consuelo, she appears to be an unhappy woman in love, ready to forgive her husband for all betrayals, deceptions and long months of loneliness.

As it often happens, the truth is somewhere in-between.

— "Wind, Sand and Stars"

— "The Little Prince"

— "The Little Prince"

One can understand the importance of mutual understanding and common ground between partners.

Moreover, the sincerest and strongest relationships occur when both partners want to give more than take.

3. Ernest Hemingway And Mary Welsh

Every woman Hemingway has loved is worth a separate novel. He has been married four times.

The writer cultivated the image of the mysterious macho man.

He argued he had many mistresses, including legendary Mata Hari, several Italian countesses, a gangster, an African leader and a Greek princess.

Many people believed him, but the facts from his biography make us think differently.

In 1944, Ernest met a pretty blonde in a London pub and fell in love. The woman was Mary Welsh, a journalist.

After eight days, the writer came to her and asked for her hand in marriage.

She asked him not to be stupid (they both were married), but their next meeting in a Paris hotel made everything clear.

Two years later, Hemingway linked his destiny with Mary forever.

What Hemingway Can Teach Us About Love And Relationships

— "A Farewell To Arms"

— "A Moveable Feast"

— "Death in the Afternoon"

— "A Farewell To Arms"

We learn love is impossible to predict. This feeling never comes to those who wait for it.

But if it has pierced you, struggle for it if needed.

Never give up attempts to be with the one you love. Even if there is no happy ending for you two, your feelings are what really matter.
