“I don’t really care about my happiness.
I care about our happiness. We’re an ecosystem—no man is an island.
I do care about integrity. About being genuine.
I’d rather be genuinely unhappy or lonely than falsely happy or selfishly well-off.
Honor isn’t for ancient warriors. Morality isn’t for ministers and spiritual folks.
Honor, morality, humor and compassion—you know, good heart—is for all of us:
ironically, it’s the only thing, ever, that will make any one of us truly happy.”
