ideals of happiness people cherish,
and in what singular places they look
for this well-spring of their life.

some in the pride of power,
and others in the achievements of art and literature;
a few seek it in the exploration of their own minds,
or in search for knowledge.

- widely misattributed to Mark Twain

Life is lived in the living.
Set aside convention, caution,
