    Avoid speaking negative things. Why look at the drains, when there is beauty all around? You could take me into the most perfect room in the world, and still, if I wanted to, I would be able to find faults in it. But why should I want to? Why not enjoy its beauty?

    “If you could do something different now, what would it be?” I ask Lester. “Not a thing. Yew are lookin’ at the most contented man in the world.” “What’s your secret?” “I guess I make the most of what comes and the least of what goes.”
  • Cassia shared from American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition: A Novel by Neil Gaiman
    People believe, thought Shadow. It’s what people do. They believe. And then they will not take responsibility for their beliefs; they conjure things, and do not trust the conjurations. People populate the darkness; with ghosts, with gods, with electrons, with tales. People imagine, and people believe: and it is that belief, that rock-solid belief, that makes things happen.
