Favorite quotes from smart books

Ah, home, sweet home ... Raking up the deposits of old notebooks ...

Maybe someone else will serve good service ...

Let this be a continuation of the previously written article: "What books need to be read for personal self-development"

In general, I summarize 🙂 

“You can enjoy your own laziness, calling it inner harmony. You can kiss interest, calling it love. You can love and hear that this is a whore. You can stand for yourself a system of values ​​and be happy in it, not for good, but contrary to it. You can do everything that is impossible, and all that you want. If only then it would not hurt for aimlessly lived years. ”

And ... be happy 🙂 With love from sunny Dahab,
