Respect & Attention

“We may seek a fortune for no greater reason than to secure the respect and attention of people who would otherwise look straight through us.” -Alain de Botton  

Pay Attention To The Universe

β€œThe unhappy person resents it when you try to cheer him up, because that means he has to stop dwelling on himself and start paying attention to the universe. Unhappiness is the ultimate form of self-indulgence.” β€” Tom Robbins
