Sadness is often the result of arrogance. When an arrogant person suffers misfortune, he says to himself, "These things should not be happening to a person like myself."
The humble person, however, calmly accepts whatever he is unable to change. Hence he is never needlessly sad.
As we learn from the Wisest man in the bible, King Solomon, Turn, Turn, Turn, there is a time and place for everything.
