And three more quotations on my birthday

posted in: Uncategorized | 1

When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

John Lennon

Dick walked beside her, feeling her unhappiness, and wanting to drink the rain that touched her cheek.

Tender is the Night”, F Scott Fitzgerald

To be happy for an hour, get drunk; to be happy for a year, fall in love; to be happy for life, take up gardening.

Chinese proverb (allegedly)

Quotations from last year here.

And the year before here.
