10 Of The Most Poignant ‘Fleabag’ Quotes That Taught Us About Love, Loss, and Letting Go

Fleabag did a lot for society. For starters, Phoebe Waller-Bridge convinced us all to buy a Jumpsuit™️and there was a devastatingly hot priest. More than that, Fleabag taught us to make room for our messy, ugly, and imperfect humanity. That perhaps all of those things we thought made us broken were actually the good parts all along.

Here are 10 poignant Fleabag quotes that taught us about love, loss, and letting go.

It’ll pass.

The Priest

People make mistakes.


The only person I’d run through an airport for is you.


People are all we’ve got. So grab the night by its nipples and go flirt with someone.


Love is awful. It’s painful. Frightening. It makes you doubt yourself, judge yourself, distance yourself from the other people in your life. Makes you selfish, makes you creepy, makes you obsessed with your hair. It takes strength to know what’s right. And love isn’t something that weak people do. Being a romantic takes a hell of a lot of hope. I think what they mean is, when you find somebody that you love, it feels like hope.

The Priest

I think you know how to love better than any of us. It’s why you find it so painful.


Why believe in something awful when you can believe in something wonderful?

The Priest

With all the love I have for her. I don’t know where to put it now.


 Don’t make me hate you. Loving you’s painful enough.


[Love is] all any of us want and it’s Hell when we get there! So, no wonder it’s something we don’t want to do on our own.
