“We all want to be loved…to be happy. So why aren’t we? Because we’ve become experts at sabotaging our own happiness. Feeling like victims, when in fact it’s the choices we make, the bad habits, the vices, the inability to show love and compassion. These are the things that tear us down. We’re not victims. We’re assassins when it comes to love and happiness.”
“We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy; we’ll get that car or that job or that person in our lives that’ll fix everything. But happiness is a mood, and it’s a condition, not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry, it’s not permanent. It comes and goes and that’s okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness a lot more often.” - Julian Baker

Nathan: I’m sure it does. It probably didn’t respect that you brought it here in a purse, though. Julian: That’s a man bag. Nathan: If that’s your story. * Julian: It is a man bag, by the way. Nathan: Oh, you mean that purse?
