    Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
    “What I “discovered” was that happiness is not something that happens. It is not the result of good fortune or random chance. It is not something that money can buy or power command. It does not depend on outside events, but, rather, on how we interpret them. Happiness, in fact, is a condition that must be prepared for, cultivated, and defended privately by each person. People who learn to control inner experience will be able to determine the quality of their lives, which is as close as any of us can come to being happy. Yet”
    Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow

    Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.”
    Marcus Tullius Cicero

    Chuck Palahniuk
    “Warning: If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all that claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think every thing you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned.”
    Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

The rug. Then you're trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.”
    Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
