25 Sad Love Quotes-There are things about Sad Love Quotes that connect with most people because whether it’s in life or love, almost everyone has experienced the sadness associated with a love that’s dying or dead or that never really was.
There is a particular quote that talks about flowers knowing when butterflies will return to perch, and the sky understanding if the moon walks out but humans not knowing if their lover that left will ever come back.
This is of course sad but instructive. Butterflies and flowers have a mutual relationship that involves the flower giving the butterfly a place to rest and the butterfly fertilizing the flower in return. When related with real life relationships, when two people are in love, they give of themselves to each other. But when they fall out of love and split, they miss those things and get sad.

As with the moon and the sky narrative, the sky houses the moon and the moon in turn lightens up the sky. It is another reference to how mutually-beneficial relationships are and gives an insight into why things can get sad when such relationships end.
For instance, in the case of the butterfly and the flower, when their relationship ends, the butterfly will no longer perch on the flower and the flower will no longer be fertilized by the butterfly. Same with the moon and sky; the moon will no longer have a place to stay and the sky will no longer be lightened up by the moon.
Sadness and an air of Nonchalance
Some people cope with breakups by crying about it and asking why it had to happen. Some, not so much; instead of crying or asking why, they are determined not to let the source of their sadness know; so they refuse to give in to tears. They surround themselves with Sad Love Quotes and tell themselves over and over again that they are okay, and that they did not really care about the person.
But the thing about love is that once you’ve given a part of yourself to someone, no matter how little that part is, if that relationship fails, if that love goes sour, you will be sad because you did not just waste your affection on that person, you wasted your time.
The most important thing though about sadness is that while it may be capable of crippling one and making them swear never to love again, time has a way of helping them forget and helping them find love again.
