"The sadness is in life.
One loves life
regardless of its sadness,
perhaps because of it.
It’s summed up in a line by Vergil:
Sunt lacrimae rerum;
et mentem mortalia tangunt.

There are tears in things,
and all things doomed to die
touch the heart.
What one loves about life
are the things that fade.
It’s a sense of things passing
- so regretful, regretful -
of things being beautiful and yet mortal
that makes life worth living."
