I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all. — Leo Rosten

And what is Happiness, if not being compassionate, responsible, useful, of purpose, standing for something, or having made a difference?
Happiness is not selfishness, it is the opposite. With self-lessness there comes great joy!
