Happiness #1

Blaise Pascal was right. Everybody is looking for happiness. The entire of human history can be described in terms of people trying to achieve the state of affairs that they perceive as the happiest possible. Even those who kill themselves do so because they think that death will make them happier than life.

If we don’t understand this, then we can’t claim to know anything about the human condition.
