Shiny happy Jesus

  "Ask most people what they want out of life and the answer is simple -- to be happy. 
Maybe it's this expectation though of wanting to be happy that just keeps us from ever getting there. 
Maybe the more we try to will ourselves to states of bliss, the more confused we get -- 
to the point where we don't recognize ourselves. 
Instead we just keep smiling -- trying to be the happy people we wish we were."

-- Meredith, Grey's Anatomy  
("Shiny Happy People," Season 6, episode 2)

"That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've said too much
I haven't said enough."

-- R.E.M., "Losing My Religion"
