"Why define, why worry, why not just be simple and free and loving with other people? * * * Love, love was the key * * * Perhaps after all goodness was too hard to understand * * * Life is a whole, it must be lived as a whole, abstract good and bad are fictions. We must live in our own concrete realized truth and that’s got to include what we deeply desire, what fulfills us and gives us joy * * * Happiness, that’s what life’s about, it’s your job to be happy, not to spread gloom and despair all round. Don’t be so selfish. Get your courage back, get your narcissism back, get your myth back, straighten your spine and believe in yourself again * * * "
