art of happiness

“Each one   has  happiness in own  hands,

as the artist handles the rude clay and seeks to reshape it into a figure;

yet it is the same with this art of happiness as with all others:

only the capacity for it is innate;

the art itself must be learned and painstakingly practiced.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
