David Foster Wallace
“Am I a good person? Deep down, do I even really want to be a good person, or do I only want to seem like a good person so that people (including myself) will approve of me? Is there a difference? How do I ever actually know whether I'm bullshitting myself, morally speaking?”
David Foster Wallace, Consider the Lobster and Other Essays

“As we grow up we learn that even the person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it gets harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love, so take many pictures, laugh too much and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is one minute of happiness you'll never get back.”
Andy Biersack

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“It is not our level of prosperity that makes for happiness but the kinship of heart to heart and the way we look at the world. Both attitudes lie within our power, so that a man is happy so long as he chooses to be happy, and no one can stop him.”
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Cancer Ward

Ray Bradbury
“Nuk e di. I kemi të gjitha ç’duhen për të qenë të lumtur, e prapë s’jemi dot të lumtur. Diçka mungon. Kërkova përreth dhe pashë se e vetmja gjë që më mungonte ishin librat, ata që unë i kisha djegur gjatë gjithë këtyre dhjetë a njëzet vjetve të fundit. Dhe atëherë mendova se ndoshta janë librat ata që do të më ndihmojnë.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Louisa May Alcott
“Friedrich, why didn't you..."

"Ah, heaven, she gifs me the name that no one speaks since Minna died!" cried the Professor, pausing in a puddle to regard her with grateful delight.

"I always call you so to myself––I forgot, but I won't unless you like it."

"Like it? It is more sweet to me than I can tell. Say 'thou', also, and I shall say your language is almost as beautiful as mine."

"Isn't 'thou' a little sentimental?" asked Jo, privately thinking it a lovely monosyllable.

"Sentimental? Yes. Thank Gott, we Germans believe in sentiment, and keep ourselves young mit it. Your English 'you' is so cold, say 'thou', heart's dearest, it means so much to me," pleaded Mr. Bhaer, more like a romantic student than a grave professor.”
Louisa May Alcott

about the laws of the Universe,
love, healthy life
about the FUTURE

Donna Tartt

Ankit Rawat
“The secret of happiness lies in the lifestyle of a child who lives in present; past and future are only the grammar thing for him.”
Ankit Rawat

“Glück ist ein Geheimnis, es ist still, persönlich und jenseits aller Worte. Man kann es nicht beschreiben, und entgegen allen anders lautenden Behauptungen kann es auch nicht geteilt werden. Sieht man zwei Menschen, die zusammen glücklich sind, weiß man, dass jeder für sich das Glück mitgebracht hat – sie haben es nicht gemeinsam gefunden, denn wie Frieden oder den Heiligen Geist kann man Glück nur finden, wenn man allein ist.”
Burnside, John

Hermann Hesse
“I do want something more. I’m not content to be happy, that’s not what I’m cut out to be, not what fate intended for me. I’m destined to be the very opposite. I had more than my fair share of unhappiness but my unhappiness was stupid, barren... Because if I wanted to die, and I did, I ought not to have been so afraid of death. The unhappiness I’m in need of and longing for is different. It’s of a kind that will make me hunger for suffering and lust for death. That’s the sort of unhappiness, or happiness, I am waiting for.
There is nothing wrong with this happiness. On the contrary, I love it, feel grateful for it. It’s as beautiful as a sunny day in a summer of rain. But I sense that it can’t last, so it is barren too, this happiness. It is satisfying, but satisfaction is not the nourishment I need. It’s enough to fill Steppenwolf’s stomach and send him to sleep, but it’s not the kind of happiness to die for.

I am very satisfied with my happiness. It’s something I can live with for quite a while yet, but if it occasionally deserts me for an hour or so, allowing me to wake from my sleep and experience a longing for something, what I long for with all my being is not this happiness, not that it should last for ever. Rather, I long to experience suffering again, only more exquisitely, more richly this time. What I yearn for are the kinds of suffering that will make me ready and willing to die.”
Hermann Hesse

Tove Jansson
“Mari hörte nicht so genau zu, ein abenteuerlicher Gedanke begann Form anzunehmen: die Möglichkeit eines ganz eigenen Alleinseins in Frieden und Erwartung, fast eine Art Jux, den man sich erlauben kann, wenn man mit Liebe gesegnet ist.”
Tove Jansson, Fair Play

Awdhesh Singh
“An unfortunate reality is that most people are unhappy most of the time. Unhappiness is so widely
pervasive in the modern world that if you tell someone that you are happy, people are unlikely to
believe you. It is because we have stopped accepting that it is possible to achieve happiness”
Awdhesh Singh, 31 Ways to Happiness

Tomáš Sedláček
“The fewer things one was dependent on, the freer he felt. Thus it is here from which calls for freedom from the wants (demands) of the flesh come.”

Gianrico Carofiglio
“Pensai alla frase più precisa che abbia mia letto sul concetto di felicità. Era di Prévert - o forse di Proust? - e faceva più o meno così: "Ho riconosciuto la felicità dal rumore che ha fatto andandosene." Mi chiesi se anche questa fosse melensa, solo più adatta alla mia indole. Non risposi alla domanda. Non lo faccio quasi mai.”
Gianrico Carofiglio, La disciplina di Penelope

“If you have joy, make happy those who are sad.”
Ronald Sanson Stresser Junior

“It Hard to love someone you can never be together with, but it takes courage to support that person to find the right path to their happiness.”
Christen Kuikoua

Vishesh Panthi
“I love love, and I hate hate. I am happy for happiness. and grateful for the gratitude, i believe in faith.”
Vishesh Panthi

“Las circunstancias bajo las cuales las vidas cambian de rumbo son tan diversas que lo lógico sería no decir nada sobre alguien hasta que muere. La muerte no sólo es el único verdadero árbitro de la felicidad, sino que es la única medida por la cual podemos juzgar la vida misma”

Karina Yan Glaser
