What is happiness?

Author: Paulo Coelho

“After all, what is happiness?

Love, they tell me. But love doesn’t bring and never has brought happiness.
On the contrary, it’s a constant state of anxiety, a battlefield; it’s sleepless nights, asking ourselves all the time if we’re doing the right thing. Real love is composed of ecstasy and agony.”

? Paulo Coelho, The Witch Of Portobello
