“Everything worthwhile in life is won through surmounting the associated negative experience.  Any attempt to escape the negative, to avoid it or quash it or silence it, only backfires.  The avoidance of suffering is a form of suffering.  The avoidance of struggle is a struggle.  The denial of failure is a failure.  Hiding what is shameful is itself a form of shame.” ~ Mark Mason, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

 

“The more you desperately want to be rich, the more poor and unworthy you feel, regardless of how much money you actually make.  The more you desperately want to be sexy and desired, the uglier you come to see yourself, regardless of your actual physical appearance.  The more you desperately want to be happy and loved, the lonelier and more afraid you become, regardless of those who surround you.  The more you want to be spiritually enlightened, the more self-centered and shallow you become in trying to get there.” ~ Mark Mason, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

 

“We have problems perceiving nonevents.  We are blind to what does not exist.  We realize if there is a war, but we do not appreciate the absence of war during peacetime.  If we are healthy, we rarely think about being sick.  Or, if we get off the plane in Cancún, we do not stop to notice that we did not crash.  If we thought more frequently about absence, we might well be happier.” ~ Rolf Dobelli, The Art of Thinking Clearly

 

“Whether you go through life believing that ‘people are inherently good’ or ‘people are inherently bad,’ you will find daily proof to support your case.  Both parties, the philanthropists and the misanthropes, simply filter disconfirming evidence (evidence to the contrary) and focus on the do-gooders and dictators who support their worldviews.” ~ Rolf Dobelli, The Art of Thinking Clearly

 

“Love, at every opportunity you are given to love.  Be less afraid.  Embrace each day (none are promised).  Cry when you need to, it’ll make you feel better.  You were put on this planet to feel every feeling you could, do that.  Everything works out in the end.  I promise.” ~ Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You

 

“But really, all we want, and I speak for the entire human race here, is contact.  Someone to let us know that we aren’t alone.  That the world isn’t a dream and you and I really are happening at the same time, even if it’s not in the same place.  That this is real.  You’re really there.  I’m really here.  We’re real.  This is real.” ~ Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You
