For no reason whatsoever.

"Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the over-compensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn't nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picteresqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand." -- Mustapha Mond, Brave New World
