I looked into laughter, and I saw forever and ever and ever. I think forever can be too much for us – that we actually need sadness as a survival tool – that it’s in the development of the species. This is inadequately explored. But the truly happy man creates nothing. And don’t mistake cheerfulness for happiness.
