The Pursuit of Happiness

“We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world.”

From “A Brief for the Defense.”

-Jack Gilbert, poet.

1925-2012

I’m not immune from pain or ignorant of the life’s unfairness and distortion, but in spite of it, happiness and joy must be there.

It’s always waiting for us.

Not the other way around.  Just look around you.
