"The fact that you got a little happier today doesn't change the fact that you also become a little sadder.  Every day you become a little more of both, which means that right now, at this exact moment, you're the happiest and the saddest you've ever been in your whole life." ... "What about you?  Are you the happiest and saddest right now that you've ever been?"  "Of course I am."  "Why?"  "Because nothing makes me happier and nothing makes me sadder than you."
