Quote from Susan Jacoby,

"Too many Americans have twisted
the sensible right to pursue happiness
into the delusion that we are entitled
to a guarantee of happiness.
If we don't get exactly what we want,
we assume someone must be violating our rights.
We're no longer willing to write off
some of life's disappointments to simple bad luck."
