I think I need to take a break from this incessant reading. Maybe I'll do that after I finish this next one: The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner. Also borrowed from the library, in this book the author travels to the world's notoriously happy places to figure out why its people are so content.
I'm only a couple pages in, but I've already wondered: Would these people be just as happy elsewhere? Is it the environment and that country's policies that creates the bliss or the culture its people have grown up in that's instilled that happiness within each person? I guess those questions depend on each particular country and how they've approached the state of bliss.
What do you think creates true happiness?
