Quote

“Anger is fear that becomes a defense mechanism.” — Louise Hay

(True, that. Thanks, Mary Crimmins)

Taleb on what you wear, and when

“People used to wear ordinary clothes weekdays and formal attire on Sunday. Today it is the exact reverse.” — Nassim Nicholas Taleb, in The Bed of Procrustes 

Andy Warhol’s semi-Stoic psychology — plus 40 more quotations from Thought Catalog

‘Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, “So what.” That’s one of my favorite things to say. “So what.” “My mother didn’t love me.” So what. “My husband won’t ball me.” So what. “I’m a success but I’m still alone.” So what. I don’t know how I made it through all the years before I learned how to do that trick. It took a long time for me to learn it, but once you do, you never forget.’ — Andy Warhol

Perhaps that’s similar to stoicism, or maybe that’s just a forerunner of F***-it Spirituality (it’s a real movement, folks).

Anyway, read 40 more Andy Warhol quotations — some interesting, some heart-breaking, some just plain Warholian — courtesy of this post on Thought Catalog.
