If America is the pursuit of happiness, the best way to pursue happiness is to help other people. Because there’s nothing else that will make you happy. You can be as rich, and famous, and powerful as you want to be, and it will not bring you happiness. That’s said over and over and over, again. It’s such a cliché that it hardly needs to be said, but people don’t understand that it’s actually true. You can find people rich, powerful and famous, and they aren’t happy. And you can find people who have discovered the fact that it’s really helping people, it’s really being compassionate toward other human beings that makes you happy, that gives you a spiritual fulfillment — a kind of fulfillment that goes way beyond anything you can buy. This is a 5,000 year old idea, and every prophet, every intelligent, rational, successful person has said it. It’s a very, very simple idea and the most important part of it is, true.
