"I am a nineteenth-century Social Darwinist. Please help me locate my time machine."
“It’s a funny thing about happiness. You can strive and strive and strive to be happy, but happiness will sneak up on you in the most peculiar ways. I feel happy suddenly. I don’t know why. Some days, the way the light strikes things. Or for some beautifully immature reason like finding myself running to the kitchen to make myself some toast. Happiness comes to me even on a bad day. In very, very strange ways.”
“Nothing can wear you out like caring about people.”
S.E. Hinton, That Was Then, This Is Now
