I think perhaps love and loss are two sides of the same coin, each providing mean to the other. We can appreciate love much more in the awareness of loss (absence makes the heart grow fonder) and the reason we experience loss is precisely because we felt such love. Personally, I'd rather have loved and lost. But, maybe that's the naive, wavering youth in me
How could anyone know? If a person did go through a situation where they lost a lover, then they would not have experienced the situation of never having loved at all. On the other hand, if they had never fallen in love, then how would they be able to compare their situation to one where they would have loved and lost?
