Happiness is not a feeling

…happiness is not a sort of feeling or sensation, or even a sustained mood of euphoria. So it is not the sort of thing which can be produced or induced by drugs. Happiness is a by-product of living well…It is the result of having done something well or of having achieved something worthwhile.

Anthony O’Hear, Plato’s Children, 2005, p.82
