Laid off? Lost a friend? Broken up with your boyfriend? Here's just what you need to bounce back.

Change isn't always easy, but in retrospect, it can turn out to be the best thing that's ever happened to you.

It's like when you fall in love and you experience a series of mixed emotions: there are exhilarating highs and disheartening lows. There are feelings of admiration and feelings of dislike. Love can make you crazy in the best and worst possible ways. And then you break up, and you suddenly feel like the whole world is crashing down around you.

 

The feeling is, well, unexplainable ... and yet authors, philosophers, and many others have somehow found a way to pinpoint our exact feelings about change through words. Paulo Coelho once quipped this about the true challenge in change: "When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny."

A good quote is one that speaks for you when you're at a loss for words. They reveal every little feeling you are trying to express. So if you're having trouble finding the right words to express how you feel in the throes of a breakup, or after losing your best friend or your job, you'll surely find some consolation in these tidbits of wisdom. It's time to pick up the pieces and move on!
