The Certainty Principle

'To know and love one other human being is the root of all wisdom.'

Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited (1945)

Which I think the novel refutes. If it is wisdom that leads to happiness, then it is the love of god which leads you there, which I think the novel makes abundantly clear.

As long as that other human being is yourself, it should be a life long romance.
