To me, this proverb speaks of the people and relationships that are no more, but you are now more fond of than ever before. It might include events that occurred with you and them, or other memories. As the pain fades, everything else becomes more prominent, more sweet, as the quote says.
I like this proverb because life isn’t fair. Bad things happen to good people. You’ve probably heard it before, but it’s true. I try to remember this and reflect on the events and people in my life. The good as well as the bad. Even the bad things have funny stories hiding in them.
This proverb is attributed to Lucius Annaeus Seneca, a famous Roman philosopher.
