Most people would rather be certain they're miserable, than risk being happy. ~Robert Anthony

Happiness is excitement that has found a settling down place. But there is always a little corner that keeps flapping around. ~E.L. Konigsburg

"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called. ~A.A. Milne

The Pooh quote reminded me very much of my childhood. The moment before mother opened the door to the living room at Christmas, a visit from father's friend who always had a small present for us, never the same and the moment before you opened a book for which you had saved or wanted to read, still does it for me - anticipation.
