Carlos Castaneda

Audiences like their blues singers to be miserable.
Janis Joplin

Many who seem to be struggling with adversity are happy; many, amid great affluence, are utterly miserable.

My theory on life is that life is beautiful. Life doesn't change. You have a day, and a night, and a month, and a year. We people change - we can be miserable or we can be happy. It's what you make of your life.
Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Joan Collins

Paula Poundstone

Life is too short to be miserable.
Rita Mae Brown
