*You can not make someone love you. Can not con, manipulate, persuade, entice, buy, beg, or plead them into surrendering their heart to you. You will likely try several of these, before you learn better, however.
*The things that will truely bring you happiness are the ones your soul yearns for. You’ll know when you find one, as you’ll feel much like a four year who’s just been handed a box full of kittens.
The difficulty is to know conscience from self-interest.
W. D. Howells
