This week, someone online mocked me, only half-jokingly, for focusing my work on happiness when there are so many more pressing concerns in the world.
To that, I give you the words of John Locke:
“The necessity of pursuing happiness [is] the foundation of liberty. As therefore the highest perfection of intellectual nature lies in a careful and constant pursuit of true and solid happiness; so the care of ourselves, that we mistake not imaginary for real happiness, is the necessary foundation of our liberty.”
And hope you all had a HAPPY Independence Day.
