the shallowest person

“Only the shallowest person believes that they can attain true happiness by maximizing their wealth at any cost.  In absence of morality, ethics, and a sustainable philosophy to guide us in an ethical search for happiness, we will always perceive life’s random countervailing forces of adversity and unpleasantness as inflicting a great personal injustice upon us.

many dark moments

“TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.

“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The [...]

“The hardest part of letting go is the "uncertainty"-- when you are afraid that the moment you let go of someone you will hate yourself when you find out how close you were to winning their affection.
