Some passages from this book:
The only shadow on my happiness is when I tell myself sometimes that as it’s all going well, it can’t last, that one day things won’t be so good.
Knowing and feeling are two different things, and feeling is what counts
Sometimes happiness is not knowing the whole story.
Happiness often comes when least expected
Many people see happiness only in their future
Many people think that happiness comes from having more power or more money.
Is happiness not the sum total of lots of small joys and pleasures, huh?
