Heard one yesterday that I liked....
“To be, to know, to lose.”

Leadfeather:
Found this a few days ago but I can not remember where. It might have been on this forum actually.

‘Tis a Fearful Thing
‘Tis a fearful thing to love what death can touch.
A fearful thing to love, to hope, to dream, to be –
to be, And oh, to lose.
A thing for fools, this,
And a holy thing,
a holy thing to love.
For your life has lived in me, your laugh once lifted me, your word was gift to me.
To remember this brings painful joy.
‘Tis a human thing, love, a holy thing, to love what death has touched.
~ Yehuda Halevi (1075-1141)
