QOTD: memoirs of a geisha

we must not expect happiness; it is not something we deserve.

when life goes well, it is a sudden gift, it cannot last forever.

Well, I do think that most of us /deserve/ happiness... but I like the second part anyway.

I'll have to check it out. If nothing else, I'll bet it's aesthetically beautiful.

i like this too
I'm actually watching Boston Legal right now and it's saying something pretty closely related--basically that we're always expected to be happy now, and it's no longer acceptable to be melancholy (even though people like Lincoln and Lord Byron certainly weren't very happy)...

There does seem to be a sense of entitlement regarding happiness and good fortune, when there probably shouldn't be.

i'm tired of getting fortune cookies without fortunes-- i keep getting fortune cookies with bits of praise, or advice; but no fortunes..
