Stuff to think about

Just remember: If you're having a bad day, or if you're in pain, it's a sign that you're alive. Enjoy.

"Only our searching for happiness prevents us from seeing it. It is like a rainbow which you run after without ever catching it. Although it does not exist, it has always been there and accompanies you every instant." - Gendun Rinpoche (Tibetan teacher)

"False imagination teaches that such things as light and shade, long and short, black and white are different and are to be discriminated, but they are not independent of each other; they are only different aspects of the same thing. They are terms of relation, not of reality. Conditions of existance are not of a mutually exclusive character; in essence they are not two, but one." - Lankavatara Sutra

"The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong
it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair." - Douglas Adams (Doesn't really fit in with the rest, but I love Douglas Adams)
