  • The most unhappy state is probably the one in which everybody has achieved equally everything. We would all commit suicide.
  • We need problems and even tragedies, inequalities, injustice, anger.
  • Our brains were not designed for peace and wealth but for survival of the fittest, for permanent struggle.
  • We often find meaning in profound tragedies, not in relaxed suntanning at the beach.
  • A world in which everybody is "happy" is the most unhappy one you can create; unless you significantly change the human brain, in which case we would not be human anymore but some other lifeform.
  • Either i will not like paradise or it will not be "me" anymore.
