    it ain't a loss on your end, if they couldn't be faithful then that was their loss because the grass isn't greener on the otherside and they will find that out once it happens.

    When we suffer anguish we return to early childhood because that is the period in which we first learnt to suffer the experience of total loss. It was more than that. It was the period in which we suffered more total losses than in all the rest of our life put together.
    (John Berger (b. 1926), British author, critic. (repr. 1976). A Fortunate Man, p. 122 (1967).)

    Nothing that grieves us can be called little: by the eternal laws of proportion a child's loss of a doll and a king's loss of a crown are events of the same size.

    'I have simple experiments with contraptions made out of cardboard and sticks that have shown the following: 1. A marble can lift the same counterweight that lifted it, perhaps at no net loss of altitude (and certainly some gains during part of the motion) .2. A lever can lift a fixed fulcrum sideways using a second fulcrum at minimal loss of altitude, and gains in the base altitude.3. In a very precise arrangement, a marble may be able to lift itself through a wedge-force created by momentum from a backboard.4. A pendulum lever of a certain type with certain highly specific ratios can be made to rotate more than 360 degrees by a hard twist in spite of the resistance of the dangling mass.5. A specific vertically-spirally-counterweighted-and-stopped pendulum may be made to swing naturally up to 408 times, considerably more than the predicted 160, although this may be the longer estimate.'

    It is hard for many people to know who they are when they are sold a false bill of materialistic and unrealistic dreams; joy and contentment are often found in small things and work well done; thinking and wearing your heart on your sleeve means facing loss mistakes disappointment and unresolved issues; it should also mean the desire to resolve past issues move on and love life; first we have to make a form of peace with ourselves, before we can effectively have healthy peaceful relationships, with family friends and strangers, because all strangers are potential friends. The reality is life contains measures of opportunities joys difficulties problems and conflict, life is hard, good friends help us carry the load.

    Life is not a competition, but a pleasant game without any loss or gain. If you feel yourself a looser or a winner than you have not played in the true spirit of the game.

    Our concern for the loss of our friends is not always from a sense of their worth, but rather of our own need of them—and that we have lost some who had a good opinion of us.

    If I use the media, even with tricks, to publicise a black youth being shot in the back in Teaneck, New Jersey ... then I should be praised for it, and it's more of a comment on them than me that it would take tricks to make them cover the loss of life.
    (Al, Rev. Sharpton (b. 1954), U.S. civil rights campaigner. Independent on Sunday (London, April 21, 1991).)
