There are so many quotes about happiness. But what definition of happiness?

Oxford English Dictionary’s definition of “happiness” is a simple one: “The state of being happy. Feeling or showing pleasure or contentment.”

A few important points about happiness:

  1. Happiness is a state, not a trait; in other words, it isn’t a long-lasting, permanent feature or personality trait, but a more fleeting, changeable state.
  2. Happiness is equated with feeling pleasure or contentment, meaning that happiness is not to be confused with joy, ecstasy, bliss, or other more intense feelings.
  3. Happiness can be either feeling or showing, meaning that happiness is not necessarily an internal or external experience, but can be both.

And forgive me. I can’t write about happiness. Maybe because happiness can only be expressed, not narrated? Or it just my excuse 🙂
