“Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that, but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing.”

— William Butler Yeats



journey

"You know what? That cliché about the journey being more important than the destination...there's something in that. The closer I got to my finish line... the more I started to realize that the biggest lesson that this very long very hard long walk might be teaching me is that happiness is not a finish line. And if we can't feel content on our journeys – amidst the mess and the striving that we all inhabit, the open loops, the half finished to-do lists, the 'could do better next times' – then we might never feel it."

— Ben Saunders
