Ever had cause to be jealous over a partner?
If so, the following quote is an extremely insightful summation of the situation:

"Jealous: Unduly concerned about the preservation of that which can be lost only if not worth keeping." - Ambrose Bierce

Just for the record - there is zero jealousy in BPG's life at present, I just stumbled across this quote yesterday.

  2. Sorry, my run-on sentences made the first comment unintelligible. Here goes comment attempt number two:

    You've reminded me of the best live performance I ever watched on TV. I was twenty-one and on a hostel tour of England and Scotland with the girlfriend I was living with at the time. Lou Reed performed Jealous Guy at a concert celebrating what would have been John Lennon's fiftieth birthday. I must have taken something to heart. When that girlfriend and I eventually parted ways, jealousy had nothing to do with the break-up. We still keep in touch and she has even painted two wonderful oil portraits of my daughter. I'm just a lucky guy.
