"I was born with glass bones and paper skin. Every morning I break my legs, and every afternoon I break my arms. At night, I lie awake in agony until my heart attacks put me to sleep."

This. Someone put into words.
"Ask most people what they want out of life and the answers simple: to be happy. Maybe it’s this expectation though, the wanting to be happy, that keeps us from getting there. Maybe the more we try and will ourselves to a state of bliss the more confused we get to the point where we don’t recognize ourselves. Instead we just keep smiling, trying like hell to be the happy people we wish we were until eventually it hits us, it’s been there all along. Not in our dreams or hopes but in the known, the comfortable, the familiar."
"Mad was the last kid I saw and he was asleep. He was 3 months old and they put him in my arms and he stayed asleep and they put him in the bath and he stayed asleep and I thought he was narcoleptic or something. Then he opened his eyes and just stared at me for the longest time and I just stared at him and I started crying and he smiled. And it wasn’t that he smiled that he liked me, it was just that I hadn’t held children in my life and I was always considered so dark and I always had so many things that made me feel like maybe I shouldn’t be somebody’s mom because certainly the world has an opinion of me and I’m not so sure about myself and am I gonna be the best mom? So the fact that this little kid seemed at ease gave me the courage to feel like I could make him happy. And so we became a family right then." — Angelina Jolie

"Buddhism teaches that joy and happiness arise from letting go. Please sit down and take an inventory of your life. There are things you’ve been hanging on to that really are not useful and deprive you of your freedom. Find the courage to let them go."
