Wanting Something Better Sayings By Mark Manson: Because here's the thing that's wrong with all of the "How to Be Happy" shit Because here's the thing that's wrong with all of the "How to Be Happy" shit that's been shared eight million times on Facebook in the past few years - here's what nobody realizes about all of this crap: The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one's negative experience is itself a positive experience. This is a total mind-fuck. So I'll give you a minute to unpretzel your brain and maybe read that again: Wanting positive experience is a negative experience; accepting negative experience is a positive experience. It's what the philosopher Alan Watts used to refer to as "the backwards law" - the idea that the more you pursue feeling better all the time, the less satisfied you become, as pursuing something only reinforces the fact that you lack it in the first place. The — Mark Manson
Wanting Something Better Sayings By Franz Kafka: Self-control is something for which I do not strive. Self-control means wanting to be effective Self-control is something for which I do not strive. Self-control means wanting to be effective at some random point in the infinite radiations of my spiritual existence. But if I do have to draw such circles round myself, then it will be better for me to do it passively, in mere wonderment and gaping at the tremendous complex, taking home with me only the refreshment that this sight gives e contrario. — Franz Kafka

It's sort oflike the way previews for a movie are better than the film itself sometimes. What was that line I heard from Spock on Star Trek?

Wanting Something Better Sayings By David Foster Wallace: Corporations are getting better and better at seducing us into thinking the way they think Corporations are getting better and better at seducing us into thinking the way they think - of profits as the telos and responsibility as something to be enshrined in symbol and evaded in reality. Cleverness as opposed to wisdom. Wanting and having instead of thinking and making. We cannot stop it. I suspect what'll happen is that there will be some sort of disaster - depression, hyperinflation - and then it'll be showtime: We'll either wake up and retake our freedom or we'll fall apart utterly. Like Rome - conqueror of its own people. — David Foster Wallace

Wanting Something Better Sayings By Paul Auster: Normal. What did normal mean, Ferguson asked himself , and why wasn't it normal for Normal. What did normal mean, Ferguson asked himself , and why wasn't it normal for him to feel the way he did about wanting to kiss and make love to other boys, the sex of one-sex was just as normal and natural as the sex of two-sex sex, maybe even more normal and more natural because a cock was something boys understood better than girls, and therefore it was easier to know what the other person wanted without having to guess, without having to play the courtship and seduction games that could make the sex of two-sex sex confounding, and why did a person have to choose between one or the other, why block out one-half of the humanity in the name of normal or natural when the truth was that everyone was Both, and people and society and the laws and religions of people in different societies were just too afraid to admit it. — Paul Auster
Wanting Something Better Sayings By Grimes: I'm actually not a particularly negative person, but I feel like most things are better I'm actually not a particularly negative person, but I feel like most things are better when they're not actualized.

Wanting Something Better Sayings By Elizabeth McCracken: Despite popular theories, I believe people fall in love based not on good looks or Despite popular theories, I believe people fall in love based not on good looks or fate but on knowledge. Either they are amazed by something a beloved knows that they themselves do not know; or they discover a common rare knowledge; or they can supply knowledge to someone who's lacking. Hasn't everyone found a strange ignorance in someone beguiling? ... Nowadays, trendy librarians, wanting to be important, say, Knowledge is power. I know better. Knowledge is love. — Elizabeth McCracken
Wanting Something Better Sayings By Jennifer Lopez: I love what I do. I have an insatiable appetite for creating things and wanting I love what I do.

Wanting Something Better Sayings By Marcus Aurelius: Either the gods have power or they don't. If they don't,why pray? If they do, Either the gods have power or they don't. If they don't,
why pray? If they do, then why not pray for something else
instead of for things to happen or not to happen? Pray not to
feel fear. Or desire, or grief. If the gods can do anything, they
can surely do that for us. - But those are things the gods left up to me.
Then isn't it better to do what's up to you - like a free man
- than to be passively controlled by what isn't, like a slave
or beggar? And what makes you think the gods don't care
about what's up to us?
Start praying like this and you'll see.
Not "some way to sleep with her" - but a way to stop
wanting to.
Not "some way to get rid of him" - but a way to stop
trying.
Not "some way to save my child" - but a way to lose your
fear.
Redirect your prayers like that, and watch what happens. — Marcus Aurelius

Wanting Something Better Sayings By Eddie Huang: When we talked about "A Modest Proposal" I felt like I was running circles around When we talked about "A Modest Proposal" I felt like I was running circles around everybody. I understood that shit better than the professor 'cause he was just a fan. I wasn't an Irishman, but I knew how it felt to have someone standing over you, controlling your life and wanting to call it something else. From the people at the Christian Fellowship to First Academy to my parents to Confucius to thousands of years of ass-backwards Chinese thinking, I knew how it felt. Everything my parents did to me and their parents did to them was justified under the banner of Tradition, Family, and Culture. And when it wasn't them it was someone impressing Christianity onto me and when it wasn't Christianity it was whiteness. — Eddie Huang
Wanting Something Better Sayings By Michael Davidow: People believe in something, they themselves don't know what it is, it isn't a good People believe in something, they themselves don't know what it is, it isn't a good thing, but it stands for a good thing. Because all belief stands for something that's better. All belief comes from wanting to believe. People aren't up to the real thing, though. So they substitute. And that harms them. It's the problem of problems. I like it a lot. — Michael Davidow
