Famous People and Misery

Famous singer John Cougar Mellencamp once stated: "When you get older?it's hard to be happy. I never had a full day since I was twenty-one." (Quoted in Dan Peters and Steve Peters, Why Knock Rock? (Minneapolis, Minn.: Bethany House, 1984), p. 81. Lindsay Buckingham of the classic rock band Fleetwood Mac said, "I'm lonely. My personal life is fairly barren. A house [worth $2 million] full of new furniture doesn't mean a whole lot. It just means you have a nice place to watch TV. But so what? I feel pretty isolated at the moment. I'm sort of like a guy on the top of a hill in a little castle of his own. I hope that won't last forever." (Quoted in Dan Peters and Steve Peters, Why Knock Rock? (Minneapolis, Minn.: Bethany House, 1984), p. 27.
