"The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" Quotes

“Life is essentially an endless series of problems. The solution to one problem is merely the creation of another.”​

“The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience.”​

“To be happy we need something to solve. Happiness is therefore a form of action;”​

“You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact. And if you go around giving a fuck about everything and everyone without conscious thought or choice—well, then you’re going to get fucked.”​

“Who you are is defined by what you’re willing to struggle for.”​
