Fallen Tears

“The tears of the compassionate

are sweeter than dewdrops

falling from roses

on the bosom of the earth.”

— Robert Dodsley

“Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.” —Kurt Vonnegut
