So much wisdom. So simple, yet so difficult. We are all attached to things...cling to things, people, feelings, opinions, our lives, our health, and so on. It's human nature. The Buddha taught that the root of suffering is attachment. One can love and be compassionate without attachment, without clinging. It probably takes many, many lifetimes, if you believe in reincarnation. If not, it can take a lifetime of practice! There is so much to be said about this, and I'll save that, perhaps, for another time. But, I do like this quote.
