If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.
Make sure what you do is a product of your own conclusion.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
“[We are a] Star Wars civilisation with stone-age emotions, medieval institutions and god-like technology. We thrash about. We are terribly confused by the mere fact of our existence, and a danger to ourselves and to the rest of life.”
Edward Wilson, The Social Conquest of Earth
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic.”
