Beautiful quote

I was studying for my Human Lifespan Development exam and I just stumbled across this beautiful quote about happiness. A lot of people have told me that they believe the main point to life is to attain happiness. While I haven’t personally believed in this same way, I’m starting to find that it might be more fulfilling than my current viewpoint–contribution to humanity. Possibly, I’m looking at it in the wrong light. Maybe the two viewpoints (pursuit of happiness and contribution to humanity) aren’t opposing, mutually exclusive perspectives. Rather, it is possible that the true point is the synthesis of the two; feeling happiness through contributing to humanity.

Anyway, here’s that wonderful quote:

“The secret of happiness is to make others believe they are the cause of it.”

    Happiness is a good thing. However, without sadness I don’t think you can appreciate happiness. Try the happiness route and see what happens.
