Write a book, "How to be happy? It's not as easy as you might think. Some of us don't feel sorry for ourself but we don't have anything in our life to be happy about. You need to have a hobby or project that you enjoy doing and some of us haven't found that hobby yet. Money is not the answer. If you were to give me a trillion dollars and I could spend it however I want, I would use it to make other people happy but it would still not make me happy.

Sciencewise it would. It is more rewarding to give than to receive, for us human beings. So now that I've given You a reply on Your comment I feel better. Thanks.

Latest comment: Sorry to break the news to you but I'm still not happy. Your gift of that comment was not satisfying enough to fulfill all the gaps I have in my life.

Money may not buy happiness, but I remain willing to test this proposition.

This for the man who felt so sorry for himself that he ducked out of a play and went and felt sorry for himself in Belgium for a few weeks. I love Mr. Fry, but just sometimes, sometimes.....

Would you expect good advice from someone about something they know nothing about, have not experienced themselves?
