“Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.”
― Nathaniel Hawthorne

But being, being is happiness. Being: Becoming a fountain, a fountain on which the universe falls like warm rain.” ― Milan Kundera

COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA: DESTINY

“almost nothing important that ever happens to you happens because you engineer it. Destiny has no beeper; destiny always leans trenchcoated out of an alley with some sort of ‘psst’ that you usually can’t even hear because you’re in such a rush to or from something important you’ve tried to engineer.”                 ― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest
