"Happiness is the only sanction of life; where happiness fails, existence becomes a mad lamentable experiment."

* * *

"A string of excited, fugitive, miscellaneous pleasures is not happiness; happiness resides in imaginative reflection and judgment,
when the picture of one's life, or of human life, as it truly has been or is, satisfies the will, and is gladly accepted."

George Santayana
(1863 - 1952)
