Passage

"People move because of the wear and tear of anxiety. Because of the gnawing feeling that no mater how hard they work their efforts will yeild nothing, that what they build up in one year will be torn down in one day by others. Because of the impression that the future is blocked up, that they might do all right but not their children. Because of the feeling that nothing will change, that happiness and prosperity are possible only somewhere else."

- Life of Pi, Chapter 29

I have not read "Life of Pi"

But I think happiness and prosperity are obtainable at various places under numerous circumstances if one knows where and how to look for.

Life is full of instances. Sometimes, it seems to make sense for confirming certain points when adding them up together. But, in reality, it may or may not be true.

Well, a bit philosophical and much love :)
