Happiness

On a "Good Life"

What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? Psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction.

Quote 2430

The individual pursuit of happiness as defined by consumer culture still absorbs much of our time and energy, or else the threat of being shut out of this pursuit through poverty, unemployment, incapacity galvanises our efforts . . . and yet the sense that there is something more presses in. Great numbers of people feel it: in moments of reflection about their life- in moments of relaxation in nature- in moments of bereavement and loss- and quite wildly and unpredictably - Charles Taylor

Quote 2441

You are forgiven for your happiness and your successes only if you generously consent to share them - Albert Camus

Quote 2440

Who is the happiest of men? He who values the merits of others, and in their pleasure takes joy, even as though 'twere his own - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
