Skeptical Happiness

  • A ray of happiness snuck through the storm clouds of his depression, momentarily blinding him.
  • Luke felt irrationally happy. It worried him that he didn’t know why.
  • Occasionally Penelope played at being happy. But mostly she preferred the familiarity of despair.
  • The Prince’s happiness was only exceeded by his skepticism of its durability.
  • Happiness was such a new experience that Anne wanted to grab every sad person she encountered and make them a convert.
  • Tom concluded that “happiness” was an imprecise concept, equally applicable to how he felt after completing a marathon or having good sex. He had heard others use the term after “meeting the right person” or seeing their child overcome some personal obstacle.
