Apropos of my last post, my continuing reading of G.K. Chesterton's "Orthodoxy" has led me to another fascinating passage. Chesterton argues that human happiness requires a balancing act, not the triumph of any particular extremist view:

"The perfect happiness of men on the earth (if it ever comes) will not be a flat or solid thing, like the satisfaction of animals. It will be an exact and perilous balance; like that of a desperate romance. Man must have just enough faith in himself to have adventures, and just enough doubt of himself to enjoy them."
