David Whyte on heartbreak

David Whyte

I was reading Maria Popova’s wonderful Brain Pickings website last night and stumbled across this quote from poet and philosopher David Whyte. 

“Heartbreak is how we mature; yet we use the word heartbreak as if it only occurs when things have gone wrong: an unrequited love, a shattered dream… But heartbreak may be the very essence of being human, of being on the journey from here to there, and of coming to care deeply for what we find along the way.”

Isn’t that the most beautiful thing? Much love, Susie x
