Diversion.   If man were happy,  the less he were diverted the happier he would be, like the saints of God.  Yes: but is a man not happy who can find delight in diversion?

“No: because it comes from somewhere else, from outside; so he is dependent, and always liable to be disturbed by a thousand and one accidents, which inevitably cause distress.”      

— Blaise Pascal, Pensees, 132 (170)
