"Perhaps I'm old and tired," he continued, "but I always think that the chances of finding out what really is going on are so absurdly remote that the only thing to do is to say hang the sense of it and just keep yourself occupied.. I'd far rather be happy than right any day."
"But then, are you happy?"

'Quod me non necat, me confirmat.' - probably Nietzsche (except he, presumably, said it in German. It's nicer in Latin).

'I have found the great paradox - if you love so much it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.' - Mother Teresa. I've probably misquoted her but that's the gist of it.

"May you live in interesting times" --Ancient Chinese curse.


I beg to differ...  While it's (almost) always quoted as being an "Ancient Chinese Curse" it appears to have a much more recent (but unknown) provenance.

I like it.

And for those who quote in latin: Would it be too much to ask to have a translation, for those who don't read latin?

Otherwise, it's very rude...  Angry
