    I'm simply framing that the 'original context' is irrelevant as a definitive description of the quote, based on how this thread was framed -- it's just one context among many, and you seem to have adequately articulated it in a few short sentences. In other contexts, however, the quote seems to fall short; and yes, people are continuing to discuss those contexts.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Okay, good point. I've heard the quote so many times in that context it was second nature for me to qualify it.

    I think this quote is missing a few words. I've heard it as being "Your income is the average of your five best friends'."

    Like draws like. The tribalism of us and others that spans the majority of human social interactions. No surprise.
