    I don't comprehend how television can even compete with the Internet...hmmm, I can have information about any question I want to ask, talk to people, and find every song I've ever liked on demand plus new music...or I can watch reality tv and sitcoms. LOL.

    Mmm...pineapple.

    that's it! Happiness is The Internet and pineapple!

    really... getting to actually FIND the answers to my questions (most of the time) is something that Mastercard CAN'T buy

    Yeah and things like love and sex...well I guess you can buy sex...but not the kind that comes with love.

    A lot of things that bring happiness can't be bought with money.

    Of course, you have to have it though for things like food, clothes, beds, and laptops, or your life is going to be pretty hard.

    you just don't need to be RICH to really enjoy your life... you just need to be open to the fact that happiness can be anywhere!

    Happiness is pulling an:



    on someone you don't particularly care for.
    Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
    - Edmund Burke

    People achieve happiness by letting go of the idea that happiness exists.

    I don't purport to be anyone who's consistently happy. But what I've learned is that money honestly doesn't buy you happiness.

    In retrospect, the times cherished were the simplest of moments, where there was a wide open connection with loved ones or places in nature.

    One such moment was on a warm summer's evening with a breeze gently blowing to cool, sitting replete on the balcony after a perfect meal. We were chatting about inconsequential topics where there were moments of contented quiet, soaking up the sunset.

    Another shared moment of supreme contentment was sitting together under an outdoor umbrella, a summer rainstorm hammering all around us while we sat dry and warm, enjoying coffee and sharing ice cream.

    It was supposed to mean, that when happiness is not something to be achieved or attained, you drop your desire for it. And then ultimately, feel happier. Sometimes the only way to trick yourself into giving up the idea, is to convince yourself it doesn't exist. :p
