“Many do with opportunities as children do at the seashore;

they fill their little hands with sand, and then let the grains fall through,

one by one, till all are gone.”

I don't know why but the quotation, for me, seems so sad. Perhaps because it hints at children growing every day closer to us, and leaving us ("till they are gone").

This is a very poignant post. Thank you.

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
