    With the important title and the high salary, he can be loved as much as he wants, as long as the wife doesn’t find out.

    “’Tis so,” said the Duchess: “and the moral of that is—‘Oh, ’tis love, ’tis love, that makes the world go round!’”

    “Somebody said,” Alice whispered, “that it’s done by everybody minding their own business!”

    “Ah, well! It means much the same thing,” said the Duchess.

    Some people spend their lives acquiring stuff in an attempt to fill the gaping hole inside of them, and it doesn’t work.

    Sometimes, all we need to feel happy is to pursue our passions. Either that, or find a beautiful woman.

    Money and stuff don’t buy anyone happiness….take a look at all the millionaires and billionaires in this world…they have tumultuous lives to say the least! They seem to think they’re above the laws……

    The first step, of course, it to just not be an jerk. Which already seems too steep for some people.
