Happiness based on George Vaillant


The following quote from an article about the Harvard Grant study demonstrated authenticity and realness in happiness.

Only with patience and tenderness might a person surrender his barbed armor for a softer shield. Perhaps in this, I thought, lies the key to the good life—not rules to follow, nor problems to avoid, but an engaged humility, an earnest acceptance of life’s pains and promises. ”
