We think that if we can only get what we want we will be happy.
But gratification of our desires does not bring happiness.
Rather it brings a frenzy of wanting which never ends.
Oscar Wilde said, "The cigarette is the perfect example of the perfect desire - after you've had it you're still not satisfied."
And this is how it is with all our desires.
But this is not to say that pleasure is bad or banned.
Moderation is the key to pleasure.
But pleasure does not guarantee happiness.
Happiness only comes from love.
