Psychology of Excellence

Everywhere in the modern world, it seems, more younger adults than older adults report having ever been disabled by this new great (emotional) depression . . . Young people today have grown up with much more affluence, slightly less overall happiness, and much greater risk of depression, not to mention triple suicide . . . Never has a culture experienced such physical comfort combined with such psychological misery. (David Myers, The American Paradox: Spiritual Hunger in an Age of Plenty, New Haven, CT Yale University Press, 2000, 138, emphasis added)
