A busca da felicidade

In particular, our image of happiness--our psychological representation of what we consider possible and think will make us happy--is often only distantly related to real, satisfying happiness.
This is the human tragedy: to seek to realize an image of happiness proposed to us by the surrounding culture and our psyches, without ever finding true happiness.
Today, more than ever, we strive to master and control life, realize our projects, satiate our thirst for happiness, without understanding that we often are imprisoned by the limitations of what the psyche can comprehend and desire and its failure to grasp where our true happiness lies.

Jacques Philippe, Called to Life, p. 14.
