What is happiness? This question is asked, perhaps, by each person at a certain stage of his life. But is it possible to unequivocally answer it? Is there a general definition of happiness that is suitable for everyone? Or is it something purely individual, peculiar only to you and no one else?

And when the ship really appeared – she just went to meet his happiness. Such a kind, innocent and sincere soul will necessarily be happy, because she is able to see a miracle in every word, sound, in the sun, singing birds or the glitter of the smooth stream – in simple things,
