Neuroscientists, Philosophers, and Buddhist Monks on Happiness

“Any span of time in which joy would seem immediately possible.”  –Andre Comte-Sponville

“For some, happiness is just a momentary, fleeting impression, whose intensity and duration vary according to the availability of the resources that make it possible.”  —Mathieu Riccard

“The radiation of joy over one’s entire existence or over the most vibrant part of one’s active past, one’s actual present, and one’s conceivable future.”  –Robert Misrahi
