“Between the optimist and the pessimist,
the difference is droll.
The optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist the hole!”
~Oscar Wilde~

You're making me want a doughnut!!! awesome quote. it fits. I also like how the doughnuts are like eyes.


Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
