There’s More to Life Than Being Happy

Emily Esfahani Smith’s article ‘There’s More to Life Than Being Happy’ offers some valuable insights on the importance of having a meaning and purpose in our lives . Among my favorite quotes from  this article you’ll find :

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing, the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” from Viktor Frankl “Man’s Search for Meaning.”

“It is the very pursuit of happiness that thwarts happiness.”
