Turns out that Shakespeare was a psychologist

People prefer choices.  Apparently, if we have many choices and get what we want, we will be happy; if not, we will be unhappy.  But, is happiness out of so called free will or free choice more lasting than what Dan Gilbert called "synthetic happiness"?

"Tis nothing good or bad.  But thinking makes it so" ~ William Shakespeare.

Shakespeare was right, I guess.

Is there sanity in this city?

A round table with 4 men around it and a few empty beer bottles on it.  2 of the men had a wife who was receiving treatment for depression.  The 3rd man had a wife with fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue.  And the 4th man's wife, not on any treatment though, was believed to be the one who needed treatment most.  Sounds like a good beginning for a comical drama.

Could Bach have imagined, some 200 years after his death, someone would play his music with such passion and devotion?
