This is it

Here's something from the catalog of a small liberal arts college somewhere in the United States:

The College's emphasis on the liberal arts and sciences is justified both in sound educational principle and by the test of long experience. The broad knowledge achieved in a liberal education gives women and men a realistic understanding of the complexity of their world and prepares them for lives satisfying to themselves and useful to others.

And here's something from the book Happier by Tal Ben-Shahar:

"To realize, to make real, life's potential for the ultimate currency [happiness], we must first accept that "this is it"-- that all there is to life is the day-to-day, the ordinary, the details of the mosaic. We are living a happy life when we derive pleasure and meaning while spending time with our loved ones, or learning something new, or engaging in a project at work. The more our days are filled with these experiences, the happier we become. This is all there is to it.


What a great book, by the way.
