      "When we feel unhappiness or pain, it is not a sign that things have
      gone terribly wrong or that we have done something wrong by not being
      able to control circumstances. Pain and pleasure are constantly
      coming and going, and yet we can be happy. When we allow for the
      mystery, sometimes we discover that right in the heart of a very
      difficult time, right in the midst of a painful situation, there is
      freedom. In those moments when we realize how much we cannot
      control, we can learn to let go."

      ~ Sharon Salzberg, "Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of
      Happiness," Shambhala Publications, 1995
