time heals all wounds
> have experienced pleasures of love that counteract
not counteract, but contrast
> you have no conception of whatever pleasure derives from a relationship, so you can't mourn its absence.
You can, in the same way a person orphaned from a young age can mourn never having had the love of a parent.
> the one who has never loved will have found other pleasures in lieu of the pleasures of love.
The only thing better would be an opiate, which carries far greater costs.
