Quote of the Day #154: Happiness

Material progress doesn’t make us happier. If it did, the ancients must have been a miserable bunch. Instead we compete for status, an older, zero-sum game. We don’t want things, we want to be things. A rational person recounts their blessings and rejects society’s games.
