It is better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.
I can tell you that the pain of living is worth it. That if you live, your life will be as full of love as it is darkness, and for every moment of pain, you'll have one of joy too.
—Emily Henry in The Love That Split the World
In the end, the best we can hope for is that we've left our mark on the people who matter most to us, that we've loved them so well, a piece of us will forever remain a part of them.
—Jennifer Ryan in Her Renegade Rancher
