Try to understand what this means." - St. John of Kronstandt #orthodox #orthodoxy…

To quote Edith Wharton: "There are lots of ways of being miserable, but there's only one of being comfortable, and that is to stop running round after happiness.” Oliver Burkeman's aim is to find happiness for people who can't stand the oppressive orthodoxy of positive thinking, and he finds himself seeking out those who have set themselves apart from the suffocating rat race of modern life.
