"People confuse the source of their happiness. They become temporarily happy when they get a new car, or a new house, or a new marriage. And they think that they are suddenly happy because of this new thing in their life. In reality, they are happy because for a brief moment, they are without desire. But then soon another desire comes along. And the search continues."

"I’ve got a wife and three kids, and a job I’m trying to hold on to. It’s a lot of work and it’s a lot to worry about, so it’s easy to fall into a routine where all I’m doing is worrying about the next moment. In the midst of all this, sometimes I have to force myself to step back and appreciate the wonderful things that have already happened: one of my children is a budding artist, the other is beautifully kind, and the other is full of energy and potential. And they’re all happy. And they’re all healthy."
