while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.

between my feelings about events
and the physical occurrences of those events.
I declare that everyone who has ever played
any role in any of the events of my life
is entirely without fault.

People sort themselves into groups
of happy people and unhappy people
through two different, but complementary mechanisms,

in this case by sharing my emotional outlook on life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

of what could be a great life.

it is clear that they own you.
