A Quote by Fred Kofman on happiness and spirit
Every person who has tasted the bittersweet emptiness of fulfilling his petty desires, knows that there is a deeper thirst that transcends them, a happiness that cannot be achieved with any object. That is the true happiness, of which ordinary pleasure is but a pale reflection. That happiness requires transcending and including the small preoccupations of the ego in the ultimate ambition Spirit.
