This is a good film. We saw it on Stanford campus & it was followed by a lively discussion & Q&A. It's a good look at what happiness means to others, how they achieve & maintain it & what it means for us in the US & us as individuals.

The secret of happiness is being happy.

It doesn't depend on anything...

except possible being silly.

Like almost everything in life, happiness is simply luck.

The exception is in people who give of themselves to others without any motive.
