"Friends can be lovers but lovers can never be friends"

I'd have to disagree with the second half of the quote. If lovers split up amicably, there shouldn't be any reason for them not to remain friends. There is already a connection between the two of them and it's fine to transform this connection and bond to a more platonic sort. It has often been done and lovers can become good friends after they split. Obviously, if the breakup is ugly and messy, a friendship will be harder to forge but all the mess and clutter can always be cleared up after a while.

You have a point. Here's my thought....if they broke up in an amicable way the feelings toward each other would still come back one way or another so there's a chance that level of friendship would go on a certain level more than friendship nonetheless if they broke up the other way around they might feel insecure and uncomfortable towards one another so being friends after a relationship is somewhat harder.
