A professor gave a balloon to every student, who had to inflate it, write
their name on it and throw it in the hallway. The professor then mixed
all the balloons. The students were then given 5 minutes to find their
own balloon. Despite a hectic search, no one found their balloon.
At that point, the professor told the students to take the first balloon
that they found and hand it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within 5 minutes, everyone had their own balloon.
The professor said to the students: "These balloons are like happiness. We
will never find it if everyone is looking for their own. But if we care
about other people's happiness, we'll find ours too."
