“Her influence over him had already given him some influence over her.”
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
“Don’t mock people for the things that make them happy.”
“Travel. As much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life’s not meant to be lived in one place.”
“Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking
