GROWTH OF HAPPINESS.  Near to the sorrow of the world, and often upon its volcanic earth, man has laid out his little gardens of happiness; whether he approaches life as one who wants only knowledge from existence, or as one who yields and resigns himself, or as one who rejoices in a difficulty overcome-everywhere he will find some happiness sprouting up next to the trouble.  The more volcanic the earth, the greater the happiness will be-but it would be ludicrous to say that this happiness justified suffering per se.
