"Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you."
"We all need something to distract us from the painful things in life."
"But there are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely — or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands."
"Theres a brief moment when you first wake up, where you have no memories. A blissful blank slate, a happy emptiness."
