Oh, I love this.

“Happiness is a cigarette. Peace is a clear lung.”

I know you are using peace in a different sense in this article and I just wanted to add that every European I have ever spoken to who has lived through one or two of the World Wars has a deep appreciation and longing for peace.

I think it is a beautiful idea to guarantee the “pursuit of happiness” and yet, I am wondering if happiness arises naturally when we are not chasing it and when we experience peace?
