Daniel Gilbert wrote a wonderful book, Stumbling on Happiness. It is a very insightful look at happiness but being of shallow mind when I read it, the following quote is what really stuck with me:
But as bald men with cheap hairpieces always seem to forget, acting as though you have something and actually having it are not the same thing, and anyone who looks closely can tell the difference (p. 4).
So when you look closely, what do you see?
Will you die happy today?
