There is a wonderful book. If you don't have time for some places, follow him. The people's happines is so simply: in one garden or in their mind. People's heart is so beautifull, that nobody needs to order it when to knock. There are thoughts of one big peace-poet that was always looking for good in people. The man is wise.
