Last post for today, I promise!

I know, I know. Some days I post like a crazy lady and others I don't post at all. Today I am a crazy lady apparently.

But I'm reading for my political theory class and I came across this interesting idea that I wanted to share.

"Happiness comes not from pursuing pleasure for itself but as an indirect consequence of pursuing some other aim. Pleasure pursued directly can give only a superficial happiness; striving for meaningful ends is inherently more pleasurable."

This is an idea of John Stuart Mill, a political ideologist. Interesting, huh?
