The Heart.......

"Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed."

I agree with most of these,but to risk one's life is not a true prerequisite for being happy in MY book!

Having at little risk is good,particularly when it pays off,& you reap the rewards of that risk.Often without taking chances,we would NOT progress so freely!

D.X, I agree for the most part except, I think what I meant was a little deeper. For example....I would risk life for my son and be happy, or my best friend, or perhaps my integrity.

I agree with witchywoman7... Firstly, risk in life is a prerequisite of being human. Secondly, if one dosen't place themself in a certain calculated degree of risk then they haven't a desire to experience life. Thirdly, a person or human for that matter will even place themself in harms way and risk their entire life if they feel enough compassion and adoration for another's wellbeing. Finally, simplicity of thought and ability to feel completely and deeply, understanding and recognizing that flutter within their chest or quake within their stomach as being happiness brought about by another's presence in their life is absolute bliss on earth.
