You are to me like white islands, in a world of vast darkness.
Lorraine once told me, smile big when you’re sad. Smile big when you’re happy. Smile big when you’re bored. Because regardless how you feel, your face could use a stretch.
Make sure, as often as possible, you are doing something you’d be happy to die doing.
When I put down Lance Armstrong’s book, I understood something profoundly. Edie, if you can move, you’re not sick. I decided right then and there that no matter what cancer did to me I would continue to move. Movement was what the physical body was designed to do; it was how it coped and functioned. Movement was vitality. It was life.
I would move. Always. No matter what. Until my last breath, I would move.
I love happy people; they’re like smile magnets.
Happiness doesn’t come from doing what we like to do but from liking what we have to do.
He didn’t laugh when he thought something was funny–he laughed when he was happy.
…but I like who I became just fine. That’s the way life is. We all try to make something out of our lives, and some of us are just luckier than others.
I’d rather be miserable loving you than happy with anyone else.
Drink because you are happy, but never because you are miserable.
