Fast Track to Happiness

“To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others.”
“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”

—Albert Camus, French philosopher 1913-1960

When was the last time you danced?
How long has it been since you sang?”
