The tragedy of an attachment

The tragedy of an attachment is that
if its object is not attained it causes unhappiness. But if it is attained, it does not cause happiness—
it merely causes a flash of pleasure followed by weariness,
and it is always accompanied, of course, by the anxiety
that you may lose the object of your attachment.

~Anthony de Mello
