What Makes Us Happy: The Thoughts of José Mujica
January 11th 2010
Here is a beautiful and apposite quote I came across from the recent acceptance speech of the President Elect of Uruguay, José Mujica:
There is no fixed list of things that make us happy. Some think the ideal world is full of shopping centres. I’ve nothing against this vision, but I simply say that it isn’t the only one. I say we can imagine a country where people repair things instead of throwing them away, where they choose a small car instead of a large one, where they put on a sweater instead of turning up the heat.
