Q. what makes someone happy what is love?

A. Happiness has to do with how grateful a person is, how much meaning they find in their lives and how much joy they get from being of service. It has nothing to do with money once one has been fed and is warm and dry.

Love is temporary insanity; that is, falling in love. True love, selfless love, is truely an act of egolessness and is our natural state.
