When you compare the sorrows of real life to the pleasures of the imaginary one, you will never want to live again, only to dream forever.

History today, it’s like riddles in the eyes
of an old dog still running under the fever
of scorching summer skies
There were simple words spoken, they raised the
dirt along the trail
We let our words be sweet as honey, we
knew the guns of war had failed
We put the arrow in the quiver, we held the
bullet in our teeth
Forced our heads under His waters,
Just to find that we could breathe,
Just to find that we were free.

Maroon 5 says it best: "Life's not always rainbows and butterflies, it's compromise that moves us along." Sometimes, biting your tongue is the fastest route to happiness.
