“Careful studies of how women feel as they go about their daily activities show that they are less happy when taking care of their children than when eating, exercising, shopping, napping, or watching television. Indeed, looking after the kids appears to be only slightly more pleasant than doing housework.”

–Daniel Gilbert. Stumbling on Happiness. New York: Vintage Books, 2006. Quote on page 221.
