Happiness Essentials

The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love and something to hope for.
- Joseph Addison

It's succinct and correct, but the something to do needs to provide a sense of accomplishment and usefullness; the something to love needs to be something worthy of love and that returns that love; and the something to hope for needs to be something worth hoping for, something sustaining and good, and something attainable.

I wish Leif had had those things.
