Happiness and Fulfillment
"There is only one happiness in life – to love and be loved."
“Be deliriously happy or at least leave yourself open to be.”
“It's so much easier to be happy. It's so much easier to choose to love the things that you have, instead of always yearning for what you're missing, or what it is that you're imagining you're missing. It is so much more peaceful.”
“Who says we want what we think we want? We want what we think we are supposed to want. Like what the books tell us to want and the movies. That's what I wanted. Happy. Happy, happy, happy - we didn't get that. That's the end of that. OK? It's not the end of us. It's the end of a dream, that's all. You wake up in the morning, the dream's over, so what? We're still here.”
"Every man dies but not every man really lives."
“You have to go to the eye doctor and get happy glasses.”
"Even demons don't think people are happier in Hell."
”You get what you settle for.”
“Most human beings seem to have the ability to keep trying and even try to find joy from simple things like their family, their work, and from the hope that future generations might understand more.”
“I would rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.”
