I get that........................

"Reading and sauntering and lounging and dosing, which I call thinking, is my supreme Happiness.” 

"In our chearful discourses, better than in the formal reasonings of the schools, is true wisdom to be found. In our friendly endearments, better than in the hollow debates of statesmen and pretended patriots, does true virtue display itself. Forgetful of the past, secure of the future, let us here enjoy the present; and while we yet possess a being, let us fix some good, beyond the power of fate or fortune. To-morrow will bring its own pleasures along with it: Or should it disappoint our fond wishes, we shall at least enjoy the pleasure of reflecting on the pleasures of to-day."

-David Hume, as culled from Essay XVIII, The Epicurean, Essays and Treatises on Several Subjects
