“It is so many years before one can believe enough in what one feels even to know what the feeling is.”
-- W.B. Yeats, Autobiographies

This quotation reminds me: Why is it so hard to follow my personal commandment to Be Gretchen? It seems as though nothing should be easier, and yet it's one of the greatest challenges of a happiness project.
