    no. sadness is only beautiful when i am learning something from it and when it smells like a new beginning.
    so not pure sadness.

    EDIT: All pics from the OP do nothing for me, except that its obvious how badly photoshoped they are.

    No. Sadness is a bad thing for me, and I'd rather get out of it than contemplate it.

It's all the same to me, and it stirs up a mix of feelings.

    Just watched Pan's Labyrinth again over the weekend with my son, and that movies really captures a lot of that feeling for me... ephemerality of life, and what a beautiful and tragic thing that is. That whole concept is only accentuated with existential awareness, which suggests that there is no real eternity where life continues, that death is the end, and yet life and one's existence is even more beautiful because of its fragile, temporary nature.

    I would like to say that I disagree with some of the rest, since I find sadness in this vein beautiful and moving... but your comments about masochism might have some truth in them -- the pain and push/pull of opposing emotions for some reason feels pleasurable on some level.
    I balled my eyes out watching that movie.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    Not really. Well, certainly there are sad works of art, literature, music, film etc that I find extremely beautiful and moving. But it's not really the sadness that makes them so, it's the whole picture... If I'm going to experience something (in terms of art) that's sad, I kind of want it to be somehow uplifting as well.

    I think I was more like to feel that sad was beautiful when I was in my teens. I guess I'm more...practical...now. And I feel like life can be sad enough without celebrating it, so to speak.

    I think it's more of an enneagram 4 thing and I am definitely not an e4. My INFJ best friend is, and she is much more drawn to "sad is beautiful" than I am.
