Pleasure versus Happiness (video)

Steve Cutts; Dr. Robert Lustig (; Ashley Wells, Dhr. Seven, Wisdom Quarterly

PLEASURE vs HAPPINESS If you’re confused between happiness and pleasure, don’t feel alone. Search “pleasure” and what you’ll read is “a feeling of happy satisfaction and enjoyment.” Money can buy you pleasure, but happiness has to come from somewhere else. If you’ve been told your entire life that pleasure is happiness, then you’re in [big trouble]. Pleasure is short-lived, visceral, usually experienced by oneself, achievable with substances. Happiness, by contrast, is often the opposite—long-lived, ethereal (purposeful, transcendent), often experienced in meaningful social groups, and cannot be achieved through substances. Pleasure is taking, while happiness is giving. - Dr. Robert Lustig More
