Hunches in Bunches Dissatisfaction Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

"Make you mind up! Get it done! Only you can make your mind up! You're the one and only one!" (25.2-4)

The book's cure to dissatisfaction is not finding the thing that you want but rather making up your mind. That may seem counterintuitive, but it's all about the mind's appeasement, not the thing itself.

Quote #2

We argued and we barg-ued! We decided what to do. (31.3-4)

Eureka! The boy decides what to do and the dissatisfaction quietly melts away even before he has his six hot dog lunch.
