The Comfort Book is Haig’s life raft: it’s a collection of notes, lists, and stories written over a span of several years that originally served as gentle reminders to Haig’s future self that things are not always as dark as they may seem. Incorporating a diverse array of sources from across the world, history, science, and his own experiences, Haig offers warmth and reassurance, reminding us to slow down and appreciate the beauty and unpredictability of existence.
Quotes from the comfort book
It’s okay to be the teacup with a chip in it. That’s the one with a story.
I used to worry about fitting in until I realized the reason I didn’t fit in was because I didn’t want to.
In order to get over a problem it helps to look at it. You can’t climb a mountain that you pretend isn’t there.
