“Love is essential; gregariousness is optional. Cherish your nearest and dearest. Work with colleagues you like and respect. And don’t worry about socializing with everyone else.

“The basic mistake people make is to think that happiness is the goal.” – Francois Lelord, Hector and the Search for Happiness

“True understanding is deeper in meaning than in mere words and is important for its result, not pretty rhetoric. Those who can verbalize their happiness have little happiness to speak of. My true love has grown so much that I can’t tell even half of it in words.” – Juliet in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
