Is it better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all?

I think the question is self-explanatory, and am curious what your own answer is on this age-old dilemma! Personal anecdotes are purely optional.

    Jan 7 2014: i think is better to have loved than never have loved,to be in love, to be passionate about somebody might be different, though when i say to love someone with peace and understanding. it is to give the best of you , it is to expose the best of you, so i certainly agree that love is the most beautifull feeling and it is worth it

      Loving someone "with peace and understanding" is really so perfectly said, I think. Understanding allows peace, and vice versa.
      Ironically, I have finally found that peace and understanding with someone I have lost... But arguably love more.
