Mom always said I'd lose it...
Ask yourself whether you are happy and you cease to be so.
John Stuart Mill
If only we'd stop trying to be happy we could have a pretty good time.
The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing.
Sometimes you have to give up what you want in order to get what you need. [Ed. note -- Gee, I guess I could have used a Rolling Stones quote for this one, huh?

This one's just going to be a quick life update but, during the aforementioned delay, I've been formulating my thoughts for a meatier (meteor?) post which will […]
