'If someone is determined not to risk pain, then such a person must do without many things: having children, getting married, the ecstacy of sex, the hope of ambition, friendship -- all that makes life alive, meaningful, and significant.'

--M. Scott Peck in 'The Road Less Travelled'

I simply liked this quote. I realised that there is no such thing as an inherently painless life. We can only learn to live happily inspite of everything. If anyone asks if there is a secret to true happiness, I would say that this is one of them
