I see nothing wrong with the human trait to desire. In fact, I consider it integral to our success mechanism. Becoming attached to what we desire is what causes the trouble. If you must have it in order to be happy, then you are denying the happiness of the here and now.

Peter McWilliams (1950-2000) American writer
You Can’t Afford the Luxury of a Negative Thought, [Rev. Ed.] (1995)
