"Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.

"What we're doing is we're bringing up children, educating them, to live the same sort of lives we're living, in order that they may justify themselves and find satisfaction in life by bringing up their children, to bring up their children to do the same things, so it's all retch and no vomit. It never gets there.

"Therefore it's so important to consider this question. What do I desire?"
