“Behind all our endeavors lies the desire to feel good—to be happy, feel content, relaxed, and at ease. No one wants to be in pain or to suffer unnecessarily.
“Why then, are we so seldom at peace? After all, we’re intelligent beings, who can look ahead and plan for the future. One would think that we, of all creatures, would be content and at ease. Yet our pet dog or cat seems to be at ease much more of the time than we are.”
