A Few Important Quotes from ‘The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck’

“I came to the startling realization that if there really is no reason to do anything, then there is also no reason not to do anything; that in the face of the inevitability of death, there is no reason to ever give in to one’s fear of embarrassment or shame, since it’s all just a bunch of nothingness anyway, and that by spending the majority of my short life avoiding what was painful and uncomfortable, I had essentially been avoiding being alive at all.”

“There is nothing to be afraid of. Ever.”

“Dogs don’t sit around and worry about their career. Cats don’t think about their past mistakes or wonder what would have happened if they’d done something differently. Monkey don’t argue over future possibilities, just as fish don’t sit around wondering if other fish would like them more if they had longer fins.”

“We feel bad for feeling bad. We get angry about getting angry. We get anxious about feeling anxious. What is wrong with me?”
