#859 Take in Small Doses

Happiness is a small and unworthy goal for something as big and fancy as a whole lifetime, and should be taken in small doses.  ~ Russell Baker

For each ecstatic instant 

We must an anguish pay

In keen and quivering ratio

To the ecstasy.  ~ Emily Dickinson

- How much happiness have you enjoyed so far in your life?
- Why is it healthy not to expect too much of it?
- How should one journey through the sunshine and the rain?
