“ I wanted all things To seem to make some sense, So we could all be happy, yes, Instead of tense. And I made up lies So that they all fit nice, And I made this sad world A par-a-dise. ”

I would know you are happy if your bones did Smile and I hear the rattle.
I didn't go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don't recommend Christianity.
I don't know what's worse: to not know what you are and be happy, or to become what you've always wanted to be, and feel alone.
Still, what I want in my life is to be willing to be dazzled- to cast aside the weight of facts and maybe even to float a little above this difficult world.
If you want to be sad, no one in the world can make you happy. But if you make up your mind to be happy, no one and nothing on earth can take that happiness from you
