Get It Back

“Happiness, that’s what life’s about, it’s your job to be happy, not to spread gloom and despair all round. Don’t be so selfish. Get your courage back, get your narcissism back, get your myth back, straighten your spine and believe in yourself again.”

–Willy to Edward in The Good Apprentice. Iris Murdoch.

  1. You know…I think I needed this today. I needed to be told, “Get your courage back, get your narcissism back, get your myth back, straighten your spine and believe in yourself again.” So thank you. 🙂

    • Sorry yo hear you were down, Fred! I hope you are feeling better. Maybe it’s the prospect of heading back to Colorado that had you down?

    Lovely thought for May Day.
    Thank you.

    • Evelyne,
      Good point, I hadn’t thought that it was May Day! It’s time to renew for the spring! (Nearly summer…) 🙂
