Heartbreaker Quotes (22 quotes)
I have been on the other side of heartbreak before: the side with the endless amount of tears, the loss of identity and the overwhelming, hovering grief. I was the person who wept at commercials because I was reminded of the pet names he used to call me and ran to the bathroom in hysterics because the songs he knew on guitar came on over the radio. I have been the queen of heartbreak, embodying every rom-com, seventeen magazine, broken girl stereotype under the sun. I know this side of heartbreak all too well; it is familiar to me and as miserable as this may sound, I am most comfortable on this side. But to break your heart… that is brand new territory for me. These waters are deep and un-tested. This heavy aching in your chest is my fault.

I did not exactly flirt with you; but that inborn craving which undermines some women's morals almost more than unbridled passion--the craving to attract and captivate, regardless of the injury it may do the man--was in me; and when I found I had caught you, I was frightened. And then--I don't know how it was-- I couldn't bear to let you go--possibly to Arabella again--and so I got to love you, Jude.
You're a no good heartbreaker, you're a liar, and you're a cheat. I don't know why I let you do these things to me. You're a heartbreaker, dream maker, love taker, don't you mess around with me. Every pretty girl is a heartbreaker. She remembered when they were kids and he'd caught the rock that the bullies had thrown at her. At six, she'd considered him a hero. At sixteen, she considered him a heartbreaker.

As the song that put rocker Pat Benatar on the map, "Heartbreaker" is a full throttle assault on some dude who did a girl wrong. Notice, however, that not only is he a "heartbreaker" and a "love taker," but a "dream maker" as well. Too young to have any idea who Pat Benatar is? Time for you to see her in her heyday. You might've heard Pat Benatar belting this line on a classic rock station, but it's also included in a bunch of video games like Rock Band, Guitar Hero, World Tour, and Karaoke Revolution. Benatar herself sang this chorus on an episode of Charmed and it was parodied on an episode of My Name is Earl. If you were to drop this quote at a dinner party, would you get an in-unison "awww" or would everyone roll their eyes and never invite you back?
