Happiness is a state of noncontradictory Joy - a joy without penalty or guilt, a joy that does not clash with any of your values and does not work for your own destruction, not the joy of escaping from your mind, but of using your mind’s fullest power; not the joy of faking reality, but of achieving values that are real; not the joy of a drunkard, but of a producer.
Joy is not the absence of pain, intelligence is not the absence of stupidity, light is not the absence of darkness. Building is not done by abstaining from demolition. Ayn Rand (via camillenicole)
“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
Dream dangerously, everyone.
