Love and Loss

Love and Loss

I have heard it said that it is better to have loved and lost than to not have loved at all.
I say that if you truly love then you can't lose.

Just so, Musashi. There are strong parallels between that sentiment and the sufi saying you quoted yesterday, stating no effort is wasted.

“Happiness is a butterfly,
which when pursued,
is always just beyond your grasp,
but which,
if you will sit down quietly,
may alight upon you.”

"Love is not love that changes when it changes finds."
