The following quote is by Dr. David G. Myers, a professor of psychology at Michigan’s Hope College. It is from an essay about what affect wealth has on well being.

Wealth is like health: Its utter absence can breed misery, but having it doesn’t guarantee happiness. Happiness seems less a matter of getting what we want than of wanting what we have.”
