> This may just be re-hashing what Jay said but here goes:
> -I don't think it is possible to attain a constant state of happiness, unless that occurs in the afterlife. Happiness is transient; your goal is to be well enough that you are able to feel happy when something special occurs. I think a "happy" person is someone who is able to recognize a special moment and enjoy it.

> Two quotes for you:
> -We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about. -Charles Kingsley
>
> -To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
> to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others;
> to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
> This is to have succeeded. -Emerson


I loved the Emerson piece!
