Name the book this quote is from: "The key to your happiness is to own your slippers...
"The key to your happiness is to own your slippers, own who you are, own how you look, own your family, own the talents you have, and own the ones you don't. If you keep saying your slippers aren't yours, then you'll die searching, you'll die bitter, always feeling you were promised more. Not only our actions, but also our omissions, become our destiny."

I think it's Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese.

Search engine brought up "Twitter" and this website:

which turned out to bethis website:

https://kindle.amazon.com/work/cutting-for-stone-ebook/...

7. Man you'll cheat:) Did anyone here read that book?
I'm sure some of you did. It is a great book. I hated that it ended so I started listening to it again.
