Chesterton, Simplicity and Happiness

Three of my favorite things: Chesterton, simplicity and happiness, all wrapped up in one sweet little quote:

"When men pause in the pursuit of happiness, seriously to picture happiness, they have always made what may be called a 'primitive' picture. Men rush towards complexity; but they yearn towards simplicity. They try to be kings; but they dream of being shepherds."
- G. K. Chesterton

Happiness is not a destination. It is a method of life. This is a quote by Burton Hills and I firmly believe in it. Yours is a nice blog.
