Happiness? “worry about… things that are creative and not destructive… hatred is wasted energy and it’s all non-productive… look forward and the road is clear ahead and now you are going to create something.”

from Douglas Moore’s Art of Quotation

Art of Quotation

Q:

“What is your definition of happiness?”

A:

“A clear horizon, Nothing to worry about on your plate – only things that are creative and not destructive. Within me I can’t be quarreling. I think hatred is wasted energy and it’s all non-productive. Call these negative emotions – but when all of these are removed, and you can look forward and the road is clear ahead and now you are going to create something — I think that is as happy as I’d ever want to be.”

Alfred Hitchcock on “happiness”
