One way to agree up is by reading inspirational quotes about moving on. Following are top choices for teens.

"Loving someone is setting them free, letting them go." By Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet is a famous Hollywood star that many teenagers looked up to. For people who are not familiar with her, she was the female leading actor in the popular film "Titanic." The film also features love between two people of different state of life. Going back to the quote, she stated a very basic rule on love. People should never be selfish especially with love. If you love, do not keep the person to yourself. Set that person free. Holding the person you love in bondage can only make him or her go further away from you. Moreover, this quote by Herman Hesse has a resemblance with that of Winslet. Herman Hesse quoted, "Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go." Certainly, love is unselfish.
