Happiness is the inherent state of every living creature. Those who are seeking for it are bound to never find it, for it’s like searching for the citadel outside the walls, the pulp outside the peel, the blood outside the veins.
A free one’s life can never change – it only improves with every new experience.
A subject of mandatory change is, instead, the life of those who not only that are not free (sometimes not even on the inside), but are expecting, from new experiences or other people, to liberate them.
The only thing one can learn from the past is not to become a lingering part of it while still living.
