“Discovering Your Optimum ‘Happiness Index’ (OHI) Quotes Handbook” is an inspirational and chronological listing of 365 quotes taken from our foremost body of work “Discovering Your Optimum ‘Happiness Index’ (OHI).” These 365 quotes will take you on a journey of discovery of “Optimum Happiness” (OH) (“Joy”), which is a ‘higher value’ proposition for human survival as a viable species than “happiness.” They will engage, enlighten and empower your “search for happiness.” Our goal is to enable the reader to discover the significant benefits to happiness, but not merely as ‘lifestyle happiness,’ but “Optimum Happiness” (OH), which is sustainable.
Marjorie and I began our inquiry in earnest in the year 2000, as a response to the question “What is happiness?” In the year 2015, the analysis gave birth to “Discovering Your Optimum ‘Happiness Index’ (OHI) Project.” Aggregate global travel on four continents—Africa, Europe, North America, and Oceania—in approximately twelve countries, twenty-four states, and about one hundred cities, towns, and villages over several decades enabled our “search for happiness.” Global travel afforded us a “panoramic view” and put us on the “front lines” to observe how people (wealthy and poor, religious and non-religious) in various parts of the world experience happiness and unhappiness.
“This handbook is a timely and relevant encapsulation of the multi-faceted dynamics encountered in one’s ’search for happiness.’ Not only have the authors opened up a panorama of ways to view happiness, but their self-directed guide [in their main book] also challenges the reader to examine their personal past, present, and possible future states of happiness. Their extensive body of work speaks to individuals from all lifestyles and professions.”
