Approval and disapproval

.

“I can spot empty flattery and know exactly where I stand. In the end it’s really only my own approval or disapproval that means anything.”

Agnetha Faltskog quotes (Swedish ABBA Singer, b.1950)

My two cents: well-being (happiness) is an internal way of living, being.

“Lean too much on the approval of people, and it becomes a bed of thorns”

Tehyi Hsieh

“As much as we thirst for approval we dread condemnation.”

Hans Selye

Chasing pleasure ends in addiction and suffering.

The first banana split was divine, the end of the second a little heavy and the third made me sick.

We try to make pleasure last and suffering to end or never appear.

When that first banana split was almost gone, my desire for more appeared, as it always has for all of us.

More desire, more pleasure does not quench anything.
