Here below are a few quotes from this book that are inspiring and a perfect way to give meaning to your life.
“The key to a good life is not giving a fuck about more; it’s giving a fuck about less, giving a fuck about only what is true and immediate and important.”
“The desire for a more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience.”
“By not giving a fuck that you feel bad, you short-circuit the Feedback Loop from Hell; you say to yourself, ‘I feel like shit, but who gives a fuck?’ And then, as if sprinkled by magic fuck-giving fairy dust, you stop hating yourself for feeling so bad.”
“If you lack the motivation to make an important change in your life, do something – anything, really – and then harness the reaction to that action as a way to begin motivating yourself.”
“To be happy we need something to solve. Happiness is therefore a form of action.”
“The true measurement of self-worth is not how a person feels about her positive experiences, but rather how she feels about her negative experiences.”
“A lot of people hesitate to take responsibility for their problems because they believe to be responsible for your problems is to also be at fault for your problems.”
“Certainty is the enemy of growth. Nothing is for certain until it has already happened–and even then, it’s still debatable.”
“Action isn’t just the effect of motivation, it’s the cause of it.”
“Confronting the reality of our mortality is important because it obliterates all the crappy, fragile, superficial values in life.”
