“Happiness leaves no bad after-taste, it is followed by no depressing reaction; it brings no regret, entails no remorse. True happiness is lived over and over again in memory, always with a renewal of the original good; a moment of pleasure may leave a barbed sting, [as] an ever-present source of anguish.”
If It Doesn’t Suck, It’s Not Worth Doing
Benjamin P. Hardy

This is a phenomenal quote. There really is no comparing true earned happiness with any other short-lived pleasures.
