mania grandorii

Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand.

  1. si cu ocazia asta, raman la parerile mele, si anume ca:
    1. omul s-a nascut entertainer. pentru sine si pentru ceilalti. si entertainmentul asta face haz, dar cu siguranta de necazuri, nu de fericiri.
    2. fericirea e o notiune abstracta complicat de definit, inventata mai degraba pentru a naste batai de cap si false probleme. si fiecare, dupa ce ajunge cumva la o concluzie asupra fericirii personale, realizeaza ca oricum nu prea poate sa aprecieze exact daca fericirea aia il face intr-adevar fericit. pentru simplul fapt ca are mult de-a face cu linistea si singuratatea si mai deloc cu spectacolul.
