I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.
—Edgar Allan Poe (via observando)
I heard a definition once: Happiness is health and a short memory! I wish I’d invented it, because it is very true.
—Audrey Hepburn (via observando)
