The man who acquires easily things for which he feels only a very moderate desire concludes that the attainment of desire does not bring happiness. If he is of a philosophic disposition, he concludes that human life is essentially wretched, since the man who has all he wants is still unhappy. He forgets that to be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.
Go out into the world; become a pirate, a king in Borneo, a labourer in Soviet Russia; give yourself an existence in which the satisfaction of elementary physical needs will occupy all your energies.

Animals are happy so long as they have health and enough to eat. Human beings on the other hand, in a great majority of cases are not happy.
Vanity, when it passes a certain point, kills pleasure in every activity for its own sake, and thus leads inevitably to listlessness and boredom.

Life's been very busy lately. I barely have any time to just relax and do nothing. These days, I work during the day, spend two nights studying masters and two nights teaching maths. I have not read a single page of book in the past one month or so.
Honestly it's tiring. Sometimes I catch a few minutes of sleep at work, just to feel refreshed a little.
I have stopped updating my Facebook. I think I'm quite annoyed by a sheer number of people who just like to complain and whine all the time.
Please don't be too naive, too Idealistic. Life's not easy, but it's more realistic that way.
Rise up every morning to a better day, and that begins with the mind.

What's the point of complaining and whining when it makes no difference? Better be focusing on something that we can actually change, ie about ourselves.
Discussing an issue in a rational manner gives immense benefits to those who participate. However, rarely do those who whine, employ sufficient reasoning and rationale.
Pondering over something of which we have no control is futile. We have to make do with all tools available within our reach.
Being politically correct is difficult. Arguments can seem so right, even with patchy amount of evidence, so long as they are seen through an emotional point of view.
Reading is the key to knowledge. The more we know, the more we realise the sea is deeper than what we have always thought.
Any issue could often be looked from plenty point of views. Focusing only on one side is hardly rational nor advisable.

The bottom of one's heart, could not been seen from outside. They can only see what we choose to let them see. From smile they see happiness, from tears they see sadness, from the shape of one's face, others see oneself.
There could never be a worse tragedy. Not something at this grand scale. When one truly see and feel, one attains something different from oneself.
Every man and woman is different. Every boy and girl is different from one another. For one man, one thing suits him. For another, another thing suits him. There was never any conventionality about anything.
Humanity strive on an orderly system of everything from the bottom to the top. There are cultural, religious or just purely bullshit consensus of one should act given a situation.
Whilst there is a definite need for specific codes, but they must have strong reasonings behind them.
When one willfully does something, one does with one's wholeheartedly desire to act. One does not do anything for the purpose of nothing.
One chooses, and one does. One loves, and one chooses to love. There is no compulsion in anything, but remember true love survives anything.
Times could be hard, challenging indeed. At all times one has never wavered. One has one and only motive. None others than to love you.
