Tom Robbins on "Unhappiness":
.
.
.
The unhappy person resents it when you try to cheer him up, because that means he has
to stop dwelling on himself and start paying attention to the universe. Unhappiness is the
ultimate form of self-indulgence. When you're unhappy, you get to pay a lot of attention
to yourself. You get to take yourself oh so very seriously.
― Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume

(AND THE BESTEST FINAL SENTENCE FROM WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE ONE OF THE BESTEST NOVELS EVER :)

It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

The happy face came about accidentally as I tried to end that line with a colon and a closing
parenthesis. I left it as it is -- as it's one of the coolest examples of serendipity I've had happen
to me in a LONG time.
