When I think of “I am happy because everyone loves me” I just want to bawl.

I didn't know who this guy was, but looking him up I think I found my soulmate and I loved that he drew art to provide for his mother and sisters

Wtf I was JUST watching a behind-the-scenes thing about this movie.
I'll copy/paste some quotes I have saved (sorry for shit formatting they're in markdown)
> One should hate very little, because it’s extremely fatiguing. One should despise much, forgive often, and never forget. Pardon does not bring with it forgetfulness; at least not for me.
\- Sarah Bernhardt, My Double Life, 1907
> He felt a vague, inexplicable nostalgia for what had not happened, and the lessons it might have taught him.
\- César Aira, An Episode in the Life of a Landscape Painter, 2000
> In order to move on, you must understand why you felt what you did and why you no longer need to feel it.
\- Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, 2003
> Why are we embarrassed by silence? What comfort do we find in all the noise?
\- Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie, 1997
> You read something which you thought only happened to you, and you discover that it happened 100 years ago to Dostoyevsky. This is a very great liberation for the suffering, struggling person, who always thinks that he is alone. This is why art is important. Art would not be important if life were not important, and life is important.
\- James Baldwin, Conversations with James Baldwin, 1989
> They may forget what you said — but they will never forget how you made them feel.
\- Carl W. Buehner, as cited by Richard Evans in Richard Evans' Quote Book, 1971
> Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.
\- Joseph Campbell, The Hero's Journey, 1991
> If you can’t sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there and worrying. It’s the worry that gets you, not the loss of sleep.
\- Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People
> “No matter how many people care about you, if you can’t be open with them about who you truly are, you’re still alone.“
\- Diane Chamberlain, The Silent Sister
> “Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.”
\- G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
> “My message to you is this: pretend that you have free will. It’s essential that you behave as if your decisions matter, even though you know they don’t. The reality isn’t important: what’s important is your belief, and believing the lie is the only way to avoid a waking coma. Civilization now depends on self-deception. Perhaps it always has.”
> “What if the experience of knowing the future changed a person? What if it evoked a sense of urgency, a sense of obligation to act precisely as she knew she would?”
\- Ted Chiang, Story of Your Life
> I wish I could throw off the thoughts which poison my happiness. And yet I take a kind of pleasure in indulging them.
\- Frédéric Chopin, as quoted by Arthur Hedley in Chopin
> If you inherently long for something, become it first. If you want gardens, become the gardener. If you want love, embody love. If you want mental stimulation, change the conversation. If you want peace, exude calmness. If you want to fill your world with artists, begin to paint. If you want to be valued, respect your own time. If you want to live ecstatically, find the ecstasy within yourself. This is how to draw it in, day by day, inch by inch.
\- Victoria Erickson, Rhythms and Roads
>The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds, and the pessimist fears this is true.
\- James Branch Cabell
>I am always willing to learn, however I do not always like to be taught.
\- Winston Churchill
