Just Looking for Paradise .
"Even as adults we rarely come to terms with the fact that good and bad are two sides of the same coin, that those who make pleasures possible are also the source of our misery."
- Mark Epstein - ‘Opening up to Happiness’ (p.1995)
"I’m so eager to see you again, but I wouldn’t ask to see you. Not because I’m proud. In fact, in front of you, I cede all my pride. Yet only if you asked to see me, our meeting would be meaningful to me."
- de Beauvoir, Simone. A Transatlantic Love Affair: Letters to Nelson Algren.  (via wordsnquotes)
