I saw this linked on Twitter by young actor Colin Ford from The Happiness Institute. It’s a wonderful quote from John Lennon. I’m so relieved that a boy of 15 would be moved by it this long after Lennon’s death.
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
