on Happiness

from Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi:

"...the best moments usually occur when a person's body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile."

from John Gardener:

"We are designed for the climb, not for taking our ease."

from Tal Ben-Shahar:

"Attaining lasting happiness requires that we enjoy the journey on our way to a destination we deem valuable. Happiness is not about making it to the peak of the mountain nor is it about climbing aimlessly around the mountain; happiness is the experience of climbing toward the peak."
