It’s better to have loved and lust than never to have loved at—what’s that? It’s not “loved and lust,” it’s “loved and lost"? Ohhhh, that makes sense, because obviously it’s better to have experienced both love and lust than not to have loved, but to have loved and then lost that very love is a closer call. You’d think I’d know these proverbs better, since it’s my full-time job and I’m paid $150,000 a year to write them. Except I don’t get benefits. If I got benefits, I’d try a little harder.
