the truth is... [4]

The belief that youth is the happiest time of life is founded on a fallacy.
The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts,
they grow happier as they grow older.
Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development,
who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation,
are the happiest people in the world.

And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others.

 ~William Lyon Phelps
