of remembering these words I read in

*eat pray love* yesterday:

"I have searched frantically for contentment for so many years in so many ways, and all these acquisitions and accomplishments -- they run you down in the end. Life, if you keep chasing it like so hard, will drive you to death. Time --when pursued like a bandit -- will behave like one; always remaining one county or one room ahead of you, changing its name and hair color to elude you, slipping out the back door of the motel just as you're banging through the lobby with your search warrant, leaving only a burning cigarette in the ashtray to taunt you. At some point you have to stop because it won't. You have to admit you can't catch it. That you're not supposed to catch it. At some gotta let go and sit still and allow contentment to come to you."
