Happy Grind

And now a short quote from Trollope that pretty much sums up the essence of psychoanalysis (which obviously was unknown to the writer):

It is the grind that makes the happiness.

Or, to put it in a more clunky way, the best sign of psychological health is a capacity to derive enjoyment from the routine, daily stuff.

I have a feeling I’ll be reading a lot of Trollope this year, so this is a fair warning.
