Then how would you know?

Anyway, it was an analogy, but perhaps I should have used one a bit more cliche? How about "it is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all?"

Then again, maybe I need to say it directly so here it is -- "life is more complicated than that." There's a chance in failure or negative consequence in everything we do. But if you never take chances, you never move ahead, experience life, and learn from your failures and successes.
