Love an Loss

By ccam1234 Aug 27, 2013 651 Words
“Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” Is a famous quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson. What this quote means is that the experience of being in love, even if not successful is better than never having been in love at all. The experience is so valuable that having it alone is a good thing, even if you lose at love. Some people or scholars may believe that this quote is not true, but personally I think it is true. There are two main reasons why this quote is true and they are if you have never loved than you do not know what love is, and if you don’t “lose” in love than you can never learn from your experience for later in life. If you have never loved than how do you know what love is? Exactly you don’t know what love is! Everyone should know what love feels like because love makes you happy and will make memories that will last forever. Imagine a boring life with no happiness and then imagine yourself at a very old age in that life looking back through the ages and you try to think of a time where you felt good or a time when you were with your family and everyone was happy as could be. You can’t… because you haven’t felt love and you don’t know what love is that is why this quote is true. Your life will be better if you have loved and experienced love. Who cares if you have lost a love one because later in life those memories with the loved one is what makes you feel good and that is what counts. The other reason why this quote is true is if you don’t “lose” in love you can never learn from your experiences with love and loss for later in life. How do you know how to love? How do you know who to love? How do you know how to handle loss of love? You don’t if you have never loved and learned from that experience. Love is an incredibly powerful word. When you're in love, you always want to be together, and when you're not, you're thinking about being together because you need that person and without them your life is incomplete. You know these things because you have experienced love and you know the ways of a relationship. A quote from one of Tina Turner’s famous hit songs says “What’s love got to do, got to do with it.” Love has everything to do it because love brings happiness and happiness makes the world go around. Even know Tina Turner says “Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken” this may be true but you learn from your heart being broken. When your heart is broken that is when you feel the truest love. That moment when you’re laying in your bed crying and eating ice cream and remembering all the memories that is the experience of LOVE. You cannot learn from love if you haven’t ever felt love and the only way to learn from love is to lose. “Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” Is a famous quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Not only is this a great quote but this is a very true quote. This quote is true because you will never know what love is if you have never loved and love makes the world go round so learn what love is. Also this quote is true because if you don’t “lose” in love than you can never learn from your experience for later in life and really you can’t feel real love. Queen may call it “a crazy little thing called love” but the band Nelson would say “Cant live without your love and affection”.
