CMC COOL, DEEP QUOTES
“There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must of felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.
“Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes.”
“How did I escape? With difficulty. How did I plan this moment? With pleasure. ”
Alexandre Dumas 1802-1870
