"A pet store is a celebration of dogs' existence and an explosion of options. About cats, a pet store seems to say, 'Here, we couldn't think of anything else.' Cats are the Hanukkah of the animal world in this way. They are feted quietly and happily by a minority, but there's only so much hoopla applicable to them."
"We may have forgotten how to feel. Nobody is teaching us how to live happily ever after, as we've heard in fairy tales."
"To live happily is an inward power of the soul."
"Rereading A.J. Liebling carries me happily back to an age when all good journalists knew they had plenty to be modest about, and were."
"The relationship between press and politician - protected by the Constitution and designed to be happily adversarial - becomes sour, raw and confrontational."
"The world has grown suspicious of anything that looks like a happily married life."
"Look, I've got incredible pride for my family. I've absolutely fallen into that cliche of a dad who could just happily talk about my daughter endlessly."

"Looking ahead, future generations may learn their social skills from robots in the first place. The cute yellow Keepon robot from Carnegie Mellon University has shown the ability to facilitate social interactions with autistic children. Morphy at the University of Washington happily teaches gestures to children by demonstration."
"Also, in a funny way, if you have been happily married there are no unresolved areas, nothing to prove to yourself after the other dies."
