There is a theory that says that the more a persons has the more unhappy they are over those few things they don’t have. Besides the idea of happyness is mostly a Hollywood invention.

One hundred fifty years ago most people weren’t concerned with happyiness. No indeed the object was to find enough to eat to get one to the next day. Any notion of happiness had to do with some far away place called heaven, and so one spent much time and energy hoping to qualify for such a place.
