"You know, it was a revelation to me to learn that I don't have to be comfortable. Nowhere is it written that I must be comfortable. I always thought if I felt nervous or anxious or unhappy I had to do something about it. But I learned that's not true. Bad feelings won't kill me. Alcohol will kill me, but my feelings won't."
Eight Million Ways to Die - Lawrence Block

"'O great and might Master Li, pray impart to me the Secret of Wisdom!' he bawled... To my great credit I never batted an eyelash. 'Take a large bowl,' I said. 'Fill it with equal measure of fact, fantasy, history, mythology, science, superstition, logic, and lunacy. Darken the mixture with bitter tears, brighten it with howls of laughter, toss in three thousand years of civilization, bellow kan pei--which means 'dry cup'--and drink to the dregs.' Procopius stared at me. 'And I will be wise,' he asked. 'Better,' I said. 'You will be Chinese.'"
