From The Pursuit of Happiness, by Peter Quennell
"Although Ruskin cannot himself be regarded as an example of the happy man -- at some moments, no doubt, he was unusually wretched -- he acquired and practised one of the noblest gifts that have ever contributed to happiness, the gift of seeing, and sometimes recording, the beauty and wonderful variety of the universe into which we are born."
