In the Land of Endless Expectations
"And, grandad, what will you do with the treasure when you find it?”
“Do with it?” laughed the old man. “H’m!…If only I could find it then.…I would show them all.…H’m!…I should know what to do.…”
And the old man could not answer what he would do with the treasure if he found it. That question had presented itself to him that morning probably for the first time in his life, and judging from the expression of his face, indifferent and uncritical, it did not seem to him important and deserving of consideration.
… what interested him was not the fortune itself, which he did not want and could not imagine, but the fantastic, fairy-tale character of human happiness."
- Chekhov, Happiness (Luck)
