Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long run — in the long run, I say — success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think of it.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl

Is that not what he would want?” Will dropped his face into his hands. “I cannot say, and it is tearing me in half.” ~ Cassandra Clare

  65. “I am a quiet man. I tend to think things through and try not to say too much. But here I am, saying perhaps too much. But there are these feelings inside me which need badly to escape, I guess. And this makes me feel relieved because one of my big concerns these past few years is that I’ve been losing my ability to feel things with the same intensity- the way I felt when I was younger. It’s scary- to feel your emotions floating away and just not caring. I guess what’s really scary is not caring about the loss.” ~ Douglas Coupland
