I love how Calvin and Hobbes talk about truly deep issues... like the meaning of true happiness:
You know what's funny? Calvin's answer sounds like some sort of tasteless joke... but I know several people who spent years looking for happiness in either:
- Cars, Money or other material possessions
- Meaningless flings with women (and men)
These people aren't dumb - they're highly educated, successful people. But at some point after you achieve "success", you look back on your life and realize, "Hey, I'm not happy!" That realization has triggered many a mid-life crisis... where these successful people look for happiness in (you guessed it!): cars, money, and sex.
Anyway all jokes aside... what is the meaning of true happiness?
