Happiness is a gift and the trick is not to expect it, but to delight in it when it comes.
See I cannot save you. For I need saving too.
Nicholas, I feel you know what it's like to be without happiness... but do you know what it's like to be afraid of it? To see the world as so conniving, you cannot take pleasure in the appareance of something good... because you suspect... it is only a painted drop behind which other troubles lie. That has been my life. Every good thing has been a trick. Until you.
