Loss
 
  No man can lose what he never had.
Izaak Walton.

        Wise men ne’er sit and wail their loss,
But cheerly seek how to redress their harms.
Shakespeare.

        That puts it not unto the touch
To win or lose it all.
Napier.    
  3
                    What’s saved affords
No indication of what’s lost.
Lord Lytton.    
  4
        When wealth is lost, nothing is lost;
When health is lost, something is lost;
When character is lost, all is lost!

        Like the dew on the mountain,
  Like the foam on the river,
Like the bubble on the fountain,
  Thou art gone, and forever!
Scott.    
  6
  It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Tennyson.

  We have lost morals, justice, honor, piety and faith, and that sense of shame which, once lost, can never be restored.

  A wise man loses nothing, if he but save himself.
