хорошая цитата про то, что счастье - это, во-первых, банальность и вообще бесполезное слово: I know a woman who was lovingly married for seventy years. She has had a long, meaningful life that she has lived according to her principles. But I wouldn’t call her happy; her compassion for the vulnerable and concern for the future have given her a despondent worldview. What she has had instead of happiness requires better language to describe. There are entirely different criteria for a good life that might matter more to a person — honor, meaning, depth, engagement, hope. Rebecca Solnit, "The Mother of All Questions." Harpers, October 2015
