Would You Rather: Have loved and lost or never loved at all?

Ahh, the age-old question, friends. First pondered by famed English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson, who concluded, "'Tis better to have loved and lost/Than never to have loved at all." Was he right? And I'm not just talking about romantic love here; it can be the love you have for your best friend, your parents, your siblings, even your cat. The road of life is tough -- there's no getting around that. There's no detour that we can take to avoid it. I'd rather love with all my heart and risk losing it all than wall myself off to everything.

What about you, friends? How has this quote played out in your life? Have you changed your opinion over the years? I'd love to hear! xoxo

P.S. More Would You Rather fun...

  1. I choose love...but damn it can be hard!!

  2. Poets have a tough time at love. For them love = pain= suffering.

  3. I think he's right that it's better to have loved and lost, but at the same time you do have to wonder what life would be like without the kind of heartbreak that comes with loss. You'd probably go happily about your life quite content and not knowing what you're missing, whereas you are painfully aware of what you don't have anymore if you did have it in the first place, you know? x

  4. I often times hate that quote.

    I've had my fair share of love and loss.

    Reminds me of the song "The Dance" by Garth Brooks.

    I no longer want to dance. I would rather miss the dance than feel the pain.

    The problem with loving and losing is that is changes your idea of love. It will never be the same. It just gets more jaded over time.

    I wish I could look at it the way I used to.

  5. I always go back and forth on my answer's just a hard question. And then I start wondering, "Would I be the same person I am today if I didn't love certain people?

  6. Loved and lost. Emotion is one of life's great gifts. What a shame it would be not to let ones self experience as much of it as possible.

  7. Definitely can be hard when we're talking about it in a romantic way BUT better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all! Never thought about it in a non-romantic way but I believe in the same principle for it all!

  8. I have to agree with everyone else. It's always better to have loved.

  9. Better to have loved, I think.

    You mentioned the love of a pet. I lost one recently and am taking it really hard. I don't think I will be adopting a new pet for a long, long time, if ever. But that little pet cheered me up so often, gave me so many happy times, I would not trade that for anything.

    I think it is always beautiful to experience love - even just a crush - because it makes everything seem nicer, sunnier...

  10. If you've never loved at all, then you don't quite know what your missing?
