On Happiness


We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”

–Frederick Keonig

(Wikipedia tells us that “Friedrich Gottlob Koenig (17 April 1774 – 17 January 1833) was a German inventor best known for his high-speed printing press, which he built together with watchmaker Andreas Friedrich Bauer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedrich_Koenig)
