We never truly appreciated the experience for which we are nostalgic because we were too busy clinging to our hopes and fears at the time.

“Most of the time we are trying to make the good things last, or we are thinking about replacing them with something even better in the future, or we are sunk in the past, reminiscing about happier times. Ironically, we never truly appreciated the experience for which we are nostalgic because we were too busy clinging to our hopes and fears at the time.”

– Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
from the book “What Makes You Not a Buddhist”
