'The world of the happy is quite different from the world of the unhappy' (Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, 6.43). It puts me in mind of that gag about Fitzgerald's 'the rich are different' ('yes: they have more money'). 'The happy are different to the unhappy; they're happier.' Which is to say: is this the most banal thing Ludwig ever said?
