“... if you're not happy with who you're waking up with most mornings, make a change -- if you want something (or someone) else, go for it.”
Helen Russell, The Year of Living Danishly: My Twelve Months Unearthing the Secrets of the World's Happiest Country

“I am not important. If I take a break, no one dies. And this is A Good Thing.”

“It’s no wonder Danes are so happy. They have an obscenely good quality of life. Yes, it’s expensive here. But it’s Denmark – it’s worth it. I don’t mind paying more for a coffee here because I know that it means the person serving me doesn’t a) hate me or b) have a crappy life. Everyone is paid a decent wage, everyone is looked after, and everyone pays their taxes, just as I pay mine. And if we all have marginally less money to buy more stuff that we don’t really need anyway as a result, well I’m starting to think it’s a deal worth making.”
