Quote by Doug Larson
The world is full of people looking for spectacular happiness while they snub contentment.
This quote highlights how people often prioritize seeking immense or grand types of happiness, disregarding the significance of contentment. It reflects how individuals chase after extraordinary or thrilling experiences, constantly striving for more, but fail to appreciate the simple joys and satisfaction found in being content. It suggests that the pursuit of constant exhilaration can cause them to overlook the peace and fulfillment that can be found in appreciating what they already have.
If at times I have thought myself unfortunate, it is because of a confusion, an error. I have mistaken myself for someone else... Who am I really? I am the author of The World as Will and Representation, I am the one who has given an answer to the mystery of Being that will occupy the thinkers of future centuries. That is what I am, and who can dispute it in the years of life that still remain for me?Said to Eduard Grisenbach, nearing his deathhttp://www.kirjasto.sci.fi/arthursc.htm
And in my own life, in my own small way, I've tried to give back to this country that has given me so much. That's why I left a job at a law firm for a career in public service, working to empower young people to volunteer in their communities. Because I believe that each of us - no matter what our age or background or walk of life - each of us has something to contribute to the life of this nation.
