"Work, worry toil and trouble are indeed the lot of almost all men their whole life long"

... Arthur Schopenhauer

I want to have a beer with this man. I think he's dead though. Must've been a homeowner.

Frankie and I were on our night out tonight. When we got to the library I noticed this book Happiness. Frequent readers of this site probably won't be surprised I'm somewhat susceptible to picking up a self-help book here or there (I am NOT, however, engaged in any 12-step programs). I grabbed it and began reading. It's by Daniel Nettle and is anything but a self-help book. It's a historical treatment of the pursuit of happiness (psychological perspective). It's a fun read so far.

I did look around a tad paranoid to see if anyone noticed me checking it out. Fortunately, the library check out upc symbols are on the back cover. Helps.

You don't want to do anything with Schopenhauer; he was a famous nazi.
