John Lennon

“When I was  five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.

When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.

I wrote down “h a p p y”.

They told me I didn’t understand the assignment,

and

I told them they didn’t understand life

    When I was in a child I remember saying pretty much the same thing….. After realising as an adult just how hard happiness can be to find I sometimes wonder whether or not I’d jinxed myself by asking for the one things that seems to be the most illusive find. These days I wonder if I should have said that all I wanted to be was wealthy….. at least the chase for money is something that most people have no difficulties understanding….. Still I love this quote and once again I simply had to share it = )
