Why does beauty sometimes make us feel so sad?

Like beauty in nature, beauty in children, beautiful art, beautiful music....

  • It means you have arrived in a place in your life that many others will never know. The appreciation of the pure beauty of life and all the things in it is truly a gift. You are lucky to know it and still be young. You see meaning in the small things and that is why we were all given life in the first place and not let it just pass us by being wrapped up in our selves.

  • I don't think it makes me sad, but it can make me emotional. Sometimes the beauty of it all is so intense, that you just gotta shed a tear.

  • it gives that overwhelming feeling...you wish you could do more with it but whats there is meant to be left there and alone. we see the busy world around us and when we see something beautiful, we forgot to look at the simple things like that.

  • Seeing the beauty in life, and all the beauty life has to offer. Is never sad for me. It's uplifting, comforting, delightful, and lots of other things. But never sad. Beauty in life reaffrims within me what all life has to offer me.
