To fill the hour, — that is happiness (Writing’s lighting up and I like life enough to see it through)

To fill the hour, — that is happiness; to fill the hour, and leave no crevice for a repentance or an approval…To finish the moment, to find the journey’s end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom.

–Ralph Waldo Emerson, Experience from Essays: Second Series (1844)
