Quotes about unhappiness


1. It's like Tolstoy said. Happiness is an allegory, unhappiness a story.
- Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

2. Happiness is not always through success. Equally, the constant pursuit of success is sure unhappiness. But we have to find the balance. My own thoughts are that parenting is very personal. And we all feel enormous insecurity about parenting. What are they going to think of us 20 years down the line?
- Amy Chua

3. The sense of unhappiness is so much easier to convey than that of happiness. In misery we seem aware of our own existence, even though it may be in the form of a monstrous egotism: this pain of mine is individual, this nerve that winces belongs to me and to no other. But happiness annihilates us: we lose our identity.
- Graham Greene, The End of the Affair
