"I always turn to the sports pages first, which records people's accomplishments.

The front page has nothing but man's failures."

Wow that makes a lot of sense. I wish I thought of it. I think I will only get my name in the paper once more and well I won't be here to see it.

Pages and pages of stuff to depress us! Thats newspapers...not your blog Ruth! ;o) Great quote and photo :o)

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
