Islands of relief

I was listening to Greg Laurie on Praise 106.5 today, and he quoted Jerry Seinfield:

“Everyone’s looking for good sex, good food, and a good laugh,” Jerry asserts. “They’re little islands of relief in what’s often a painful existence.”

Yikes, that’s a pretty downer view of life: “little islands of relief.” I guess it’s close to Thoreau’s “the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.” Laurie brought this up in reference to Solomon’s view of life without God … which is basically the same.

If that’s you, you need to start searching. ‘Cause there’s something better.
