    Default Spanish Saying

    Is there a saying in spanish that is similar to:
    It is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.

    Ms. Moonlight Gambler,

    Not really. Most Spanish refrains on the subject are negative,


    "Amor no correspondido tiempo perdido"

    "Amor, viento y ventura, poco dura"

    "Es dificil vivir sin amor, pero es más dificil amar"



    There are a few exceptions,

    "Más vale riqueza de corazón que riqueza de posesión"

    I have heard pretty much exactly that in Spanish!!!

    "Mejor amar y perder que nunca haber amado"

    or

    "Es mejor haber amado y perdido que nunca haber amado"
    Realmente, el destino del mundo depende, en primer lugar, de los estadistas y, en segundo lugar, de los intérpretes.
