Just stumbled upon this quote by the philosopher Bertrand Russell…
He said in his book The Conquest of Happiness, published in 1930 – “Happiness is not, except in very rare cases, something that drops into the mouth, like a ripe fruit. … Happiness must be, for most men and women, an achievement rather than a gift of the gods, and in this achievement, effort, both inward and outward, must play a great part.”
It pretty much sums up my aim of this blog, to discover how to achieve happiness, as something that we can control and create.
Will read the book as soon as I can get my hands on it!
