“The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others.” —William Lyon Phelps
“Actions have reactions, don’t be quick to judge. You may not know the hardships people don’t speak of. It’s best to step back and observe with couth, for we all must meet our moment of truth.” —Gang Starr
“Apologizing doesn’t always mean you are wrong and the other person is right. It means you value your relationship more than your ego.” —
“Love is a homeless guy searching for treasure in the middle of the rain and finding a bag of gold coins and slowing finding out they’re all filled with chocolate and even though he’s heartbroken he can’t complain ’cause he was hungry in the first place.” —Bo Burnham
“The arts are not a way of making a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.” —Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country, 2005 (via happythings.)
