There is beauty in everything if you look for it. The words you have chosen to go with this are worth thinking about too.

I wonder why he didn't mention the hearts of some people?

Good point Annie....I've certainly met a few hard hearted people in my life...especially over the last couple of years. Luckily the soft hearted people have more than compensated for them.

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
