: : Am I right that there is an expression that goes: "You don't know what you have until you lose it." or something like that? If yes, what other expressions are there which mean something similar or opposite?

: "You never miss the water till the well runs dry"--that's an old one.

Don't it always seem to go,
You don't know what you've got til it's gone.
They paved paradise,
Put up a parking lot.
Big Yellow Taxi, Joni Mitchell
