Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for June 10, 1990
Calvin: My life should be a lot better than it is. I'm happy but it's not like I'm ecstatic. Life is like topography, Hobbes. There are summits of happiness and success...flat stretches of boring routine and valleys of frustration and failure. But I'm dedicating myself to experiencing only peaks! I want my life to be one never ending ascension! Each minute of every day should bring me greater joy than the previous minute! I should always be saying " My life is better than I ever imagined it would be, and I'ts only going to improve." I'm just going to jump from peak to peak! I'm...whoops. Hobbes: At least with flat places, you don't have so far to go down. Calvin: Only losers go down! For me, it's only going to be up and up!
