Food For Thought

Good relationships make people happy, and happy people enjoy more and better relationships than unhappy people. Conflicts in relationships – having an annoying office mate or roommate, or having chronic conflict with your spouse – is one of the surest ways to reduce your happiness. You never adapt to interpersonal conflict; it damages every day, even days when you don't see the other person but ruminate about the conflict nonetheless. - Johathan Haidt

Human nature, at its best, had always been based on a deep heroic restlessness, on wanting something – something else, something more, whether it be true love or a glimpse just beyond the horizon. It was the promise of happiness, not the attainment of it, that had driven the entire engine, the folly and glory of who we are. - Will Ferguson
