Brought to us by iWon:

Our greatest happiness in life does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.
Thomas Jefferson

You know, Mr. Jefferson looks a little bit like Gene Wilder‘s Willy Wonka!

I find this quote interesting because "the condition of life in which chance has placed us" is deplorable right now. Of course "chance" is me in this case. I’m not so certain I live in good conscience now-a-days. We are relatively healthy but I fear that is starting to fade. The poor cannot afford health. Occupation…huh…botched. Freedom? Freedom is for people with money. So what of happiness? We don’t meet TJ’s criteria. We have sustained happiness because we are a strong family but I fear TJ may be on to something.
