The secret to happiness...

"The secret of happiness is this: let your interests be as wide as possible.  There is no abstract and impersonal proof either that strawberries are good or that they are not good.  To the man who likes them they are good, to the man who dislikes them they are not.  But the man who likes them has a pleasure which the other does not have; to that extent his life is more enjoyable and he is better adapted to the world in which both must live....The more things a man is interested in, the more opportunities of happiness he has."  -Betrand Russell (found in THE GOD WHO WEEPS by Terryl Givens)
