Ruskin, John - Happiness
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
All real and wholesome enjoyments possible to man have been just as possible to him always as they are now; and they are possible to him chiefly in peace.
To watch the corn grow and the blossom set, to draw hard breath over ploughshare or spade, to read, to think, to love, to hope, to pray - these are the things that make men happy.
