The difference between comfort and happiness

Today on a boat offshore driving towards Split, I found Thiele wise words from Colin, which I wanna share with you:

“There’s a big difference between comfort and happiness: 
being happy means that you are overjoyed about what you’re doing, who you are, the people you’re meeting and the things that you’re doing. 
Being comfortable means that you’re not feeling too bad or too good…you’re neutral. Neutral is what suburbs are for. Comfort is for people who are looking to relax, not to grow and learn and experience new things. 
You may save yourself from any potential lows by keeping yourself comfortable, in an easy-chair, watching reality TV and eating Doritos, but you won’t experience any truly happy moments, either. 
You need the bad (or even just the possibility of bad) to truly experience the good, and to fully appreciate the difference between the two.”
