What do you desire?

"You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing, which is stupid!
It is absolutely stupid!
Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way.
And after all, if you do really like what you’re doing, it doesn’t matter what it is –
somebody is interested in everything, anything you can be interested in, you will find others will

But it’s absolutely stupid to spend your time doing things you don’t like, and to teach our children to follow in the same track.
See what we are doing, is we’re bringing up children and educating to live the same sort of lives we are living.
In order that they may justify themselves and find satisfaction in life by bringing up their children to bring up their children to do the same thing,
so it’s all retch, and no vomit it never gets there. Therefore, it’s so important to consider this question: What do I desire?"
