I think unemployment is the great affliction of man. Even people with jobs are unemployed. In fact, most people with jobs are unemployed.
Leonard Cohen

The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.
William Morris

My advice to myself: Be yourself; there is no other you. Don't perform and achieve in order to accept and be happy with yourself. Accept and be happy with yourself and let your performance flow out of that self-acceptance and happiness. Don't hold yourself to an imaginary standard; the standard is you.
Michael Rectenwald

Facing it, always facing it, that's the way to get through. Face it.
Joseph Conrad

If you yourself don’t choose what thoughts and images you expose yourself to, someone else will, and his motives may not be the highest.

Thoughts become perception, perception becomes reality. Alter your thoughts, alter your reality.
William James

Seriousness is the only refuge of the shallow.
Oscar Wilde

Experience is the only wealth.
John Ruskin, habitually quoted by Guy Pringle in The Balkan Trilogy

Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.
Alexander Pope

Dieu me pardonnera - c'est son metier.
Heine's last words.
