Robert G. Ingersoll
“The doctrine that future happiness depends upon belief is monstrous. It is the infamy of infamies. The notion that faith in Christ is to be rewarded by an eternity of bliss, while a dependence upon reason, observation and experience merits everlasting pain, is too absurd for refutation, and can be relieved only by that unhappy mixture of insanity and ignorance, called 'faith.”
Robert G. Ingersoll, On the Gods and Other Essays

Holly Mosier
“No beating yourself up. That’s not allowed. Be patient with yourself. It took you years to form the bad habits of thought that you no longer want. It will take a little
time to form new and better ones. But I promise you this: Even a slight move in this direction will bring you some peace. The more effort you apply to it, the faster you’ll find your bliss, but you’ll experience rewards immediately.”
Holly Mosier

Amy Tan
“If I look upon my whole life, I cannot think of another time when I felt more comfortable: when I had no worries, fears, or desires, when my life seemed as soft and lovely as lying inside a cocoon of rose silk.”
Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club

weak or strong, living near or far, known or

Your freedom comes naturally;
Everything about you resonates happiness;
Now I won't settle for less...”

Melissa de la Cruz
“You are healed." Allegra nodded. "You are no longer a Silver Blood." She paused. "But you are no longer a vampire either."
Bliss started. No longer a vampire-but what did that mean? Did it mean she was just human?”
Melissa de la Cruz, The Van Alen Legacy

Kirsten Smith
“and we laugh and laugh and
all I know is
at this moment I feel like
I can do anything I want
and be anyone I want
and go anywhere on the globe
and still call it home”
Kirsten Smith, The Geography of Girlhood

Gina Lake
“When true happiness shows up, the ego is bored with it: It's too plain, too ordinary, and it doesn't leave us feeling special or above the fray. It doesn't take away our problems, which is the ego's idea of happiness. The ego wants no more difficulties: no ore sickness, no more need for money, no more work, no more bad feelings, only unending pleasure and bliss. Such perfection is the ego's idea of a successful life. However, the happiness the ego dreams of will never be attained by anyone. The ego denies the reality of this dimension, where challenges are necessary to evolution and blissful states and pleasure come and go.”
Gina Lake, What about Now?: Reminders for Being in the Moment

Melissa de la Cruz
“I'm proud of you, Bliss," he said.
"Michael's sword released the souls that were trapped in your blood. You freed them. You freed me."
"But now I'm never going to see you again, am I?" she asked.
Dylan smiled. "It's unlikely. But I never say never.'
"I wish you wouldn't go. I'll miss you so much," Bliss said.
"I'll miss you too."
Dylan put his hand up, and so did Bliss. But this time, instead of touching air, she felt his warm hand grasping her cold one. She looked at Allegra. Somehow, she knew her mother was making this happen. Dylan leaned down, and she could feel his lips, soft and inviting, gently kissing hers. Then Dylan was gone. But Bliss did not feel anguished. She felt at peace. Dylan was not broken and incomplete anymore. He was whole.”
Melissa de la Cruz, The Van Alen Legacy

Chuck Palahniuk
“Ignorance was bliss.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Choke

Brandon Sanderson
“The Shaod, it was called. The Transformation... When it came, the fortuante person's life ended and began anew; he would discard his old, mundane existence and move to Elantris. Elantris, where he could live in bliss, rule in wisdom, and be worshiped for eternity.
Eternity ended ten years ago.”
Brandon Sanderson, Elantris

“Success is realising the true joy and wonder of life can only be yours if you follow your own intuition, aiming to achieve your bliss.”
Steven Redhead, The Solution

Ru Freeman
“Such bliss is not meant to last. In my husband's house, my children were my real gifts.”
Ru Freeman, A Disobedient Girl

Sarah Slean
“Because life is short. I feel we’re made of a hunger, a desire for life – if that can be described as a material. As I get older, I’m trying to open that channel more. If you don’t, if you close off desire and get complacent, life loses its freshness and sweetness, and that’s what I crave. That’s my bliss.”
Sarah Slean

“Life without deadlines is bliss.”
― Chris Decker

“And they all have pretty children,
And the children go to school,
And the children go to summer camp,
And then to the university,
Where they are put in boxes
And they come out all the same.”
Malvina Reynolds

Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces

Carl Henegan
“Adversity is a mirage. People, situations, and relationships sometimes change for the worst but inevitably clear a path for far better replacements. The continued journey will always find bliss.”
Carl Henegan

Pamela Anderson
“I guess ignorance is bliss - when I do interviews people always say, "Aren't you upset that people make fun of you?" and I'm like, "Are they making fun of me?" I guess I just don't get it.”
Pamela Anderson

“Yoga practices shift our identity away from the ego-personality and its struggles so that we can begin to reconnect with the essential nature of our being, which is bliss.”

Charlotte Eriksson
“Time flows smoother when you are with people you love.”
Charlotte Eriksson

“There’s only one photo of us together and neither of us took it. I was so obsessed with the moment and entrapped in a world of him that nothing else mattered. I had no idea where my phone was, my mind or anything else. It was truly beautiful, sad and so beyond anything I’ve ever understood. I sit and smile and realize as I reminisce that it was beautiful to love someone else more than myself, but it was bliss to feel nothing for everything else.”
Dominic Riccitello

Alexander Pushkin
“Thus heaven's gift to us is this:
That habit takes the place of bliss.”
Alexander Pushkin, Eugene Onegin

“Iv loved many along the way, two in particular have always left a fine grin in the memories place. One wore a one peice laminated collage of art that's pictures identified the makers design. We would lay upon squares of light & rainbows, twirling hair in the long grass that grew ubove our sideways minds. We never fought, she was always a loyal beauty tht opened the filters of thought that would bath my limbs in a humbled bliss”
