'Tis Better to Have Loved and Lost . . .

I absolutely love this quote/ poem . . . I think it is so profound and searching and most importantly brutally sincere.

"Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all"


Literal meaning.


From Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem 'In Memoriam:27', 1850:

I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
