Quick thought before I go, 8/19/15

An old high school pal was discussing his divorce recently on his blog.  The thought ran through my mind---  Is it better to be good, or to be happy?  That is to say, if there's something that will make you unhappy to do, but morally better, should you choose the goodness over the happiness?

That's how we get the society we have now.  People choose being happy over being good.  I think that observation is probably correct in all too many cases.  Certainly, that what appears to be what my high school chum's wife did.

My parents were not happy, if you judge by the number of fights they had.  But they stuck together out of a sense of duty to the family.

Ah, the good old days...  dead and gone.
