Book cover for The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
You can’t be an important and life-changing presence for some people without also being a joke and an embarrassment to others. You just can’t.
Jenny  Lawson
“You are alive. You have fought and battled them. You are scarred and worn and sometimes exhausted and were perhaps even close to giving up, but you did not.”
Jenny Lawson, Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things

George Saunders
“Strange, isn't it? To have dedicated one's life to a certain venture, neglecting other aspects of one's life, only to have that venture, in the end, amount to nothing at all, the products of one's labors ultimately forgotten?”
George Saunders, Lincoln in the Bardo

Jenny  Lawson
“You never think to appreciate your arms until you need them to stop the floor from punching you in the face.”
Jenny Lawson, Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things

Amanda Palmer
“You can’t ever give people what they want. But you can give them something else. You can give them empathy. You can give them understanding. And that’s a lot, and enough to give.”
Amanda Palmer, The Art of Asking; or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help

Brené Brown
“If you have more than three priorities, you have no priorities”
Brené Brown, Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.
