If you’re feeling blue and you don’t quite know why.
If you’re looking for a good laugh.
If the world doesn’t make sense, and the people in it even less.
If you don’t get what you think you deserve because they don’t notice you, the idiots.
If you can count on one hand the times when you felt free and untroubled this past year.
If you want to smash things but you don’t, because of the consequences.
If you’e scared of everything when you used to think you’d never be afraid, of anything.
If you’re at a loss.
Then come here.
You’re safe with me.

Pat Conroy (The Prince of Tides)

Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
