Neither is love stable, as this very post shows.

Yes ... all those sad love songs come to my mind. Why do we cling to sadness instead of simply enjoying life?

"'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." :) Its really a matter of faith whether you believe that or not, so i wont offer any argument other than to say i mostly believe it, and most peoples actions would show they believe it too.

I guess it ultimately comes down to a persons belief systems and emotions at that point, far beyond the reach of mere logical arguments. We are animals first, thinking human beings second (this is the topic of one my favorite songs, Apeman- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRHqs8SffDo)
