A quote by the author Robert Wright:
"Enduring gratification is not a part of natural selection because if those things that you find gratifying resulted in ongoing contentment, you would never pursue them again. Natural selection wants you to be on an endless quest…What seems as though it will be the answer to your problems is not going to last long. This is a built-in delusion thanks to evolution."
