It is often said that people never forget their first love. First love can be the most beautiful thing to happen to you but on the other hand it can be the most painful experience that you have had to go through.
Take heart, you are in good company with those who have also had the same experiences and actually lived to write about them. First love may have brought you laughter and joy or sorrow and pain, but whatever your experience it is time to find strength and inspiration from quotes that were written by people all over the world who have also been through the same thing. Whether your first love was good or bad, these quotes and sayings should make you realize that someone else somewhere at one point in life has been where you are, walked the road you are walking and yet found the strength to keep on walking even when love failed them or when they succeeded at love.
These quotes should also make you realize that too often first love is just the beginning of understanding ourselves better and whether it works out or not, there is a good lesson to be learned and you can go on and become a better person as a result of this.
