"Heaven has a road, but no one travels it; Hell has no gate, but men will bore through to get there."

Life used to be contained in a village.

Today, I can talk to someone anywhere in the world instantaneously through my computer on the sofa.

But increased options do not necessarily lead to more satisfaction.

Eddy in AbFab says: "I don't want more choices, I just want nicer things!"

Montaigne says:

"If you have known how to compose your life, you have accomplished a great deal more than the man who knows how to compose a book. Have you been able to take your stride? You have done more than the person who has taken cities and empires. The great and glorious masterpiece of one's life is to live to the point. All other things- to reign, to hoard, to build- are, at most, but inconsiderate props and appendages."
