People tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you’re fortunate.
BUT HAPPINESS IS THE RESULT OF PERSONAL EFFORT.
You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly.
- From Eat, Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
