“There is no thing that’s going to make a person happy. You have to bring happiness to life. You don’t get happiness out of life. What is there to be happy about? Nothing. When you can be happy about nothing. Just be happy. You know “I am happy” – those words are sacred. It’s like a declaration, it’s like a place from which I come, it’s like a stand I take upon myself. It’s not I am pretending to be happy, it’s not I am acting happy.  No. I am happy!”
