"When you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation..." by Neil DeGrasse Tyson

"The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you." ~Neil DeGrasse Tyson

It is nice to see there are others on the same page.

I too have realized that I make/generate my own (attitute toward the rest of the world around me) happiness in life [or the opposite]
It is not what the world/life is doing to me, but how I see/feel it from my own perspective...

Sticks and stones are rare and words only hurt if you take them that way (as hurtful).
