@Wisdom Seeker,
Pleasure and happiness are valuable for life. To find value one must find happiness as it is a necessary component.

Needing to be valuable can cause depreciation for life. To imply need we are implying our inability to hit the target as an archer trying to hone his skills. For the archer, he must focus on the target. As for the needy they must focus on what makes him/her need.

So for me, my answer would be that to continue on living I need to be happy thus giving me value. What makes us happy is relative to our interests.

The ones lifestyle may not suit the other, imo it all depends on which needs and desires one have. Some like foot ball, some like base ball, some like burgers and pizza, some like oysters and caviar.
Some like big fancy houses, some like living in the wild in a tent.

That doesn't mean one can change preferences, by perswaysion.

I have had different life-styles and they ll boil down to the same; boredom

Life without happiness is valueless. Share, care and be loved.Smile

Get a hobby !Laughing

It depends if one is strong enough to put some meaning to ones life. If one is weak ..life will become a boredom nomatter what.

Forge your own life, don't make life forge you.

@Wisdom Seeker,
I find a lot of happiness in cheese. Was it the Romans who invented?

Parmesan, American, Swiss, Nacho cheese, Sharp Extra Sharp Cheddar! I can't get enough cheese.

@Wisdom Seeker,
For me the pursuit of usefullness lies at the core of my being.

That means happiness for me an sich is not possible without some form of usefulness.

I agree, but you seem to have a very limited selection in mind. None of the great French cheeses (Camembert, Brie, Pont d'Evec). And what of the great English cheeses? Stilton ("the king of cheese") Wenslydale (Welsh, really) Double Glouster. And the Italian. Gorgonzola. Not even to mention, Spanish and Greek (Feta) cheeses. And then, the German cheeses. Isn't there a real cheese store around? (Nacho is not the name of a kind of cheese).

Laughing I have never even heard these. My uncle brought some fancy cheese to a family get together once and I almost threw up from its strong flavor.:tounge: I do love feta cheese on pizza. Also blue cheese with Italian salad dressing mmm :popcorn:
