JEAN-PAUL SARTRE, The Devil and the Good Lord

Happiness has to be installed in each person as a state of affairs completely cut off from the process that brought it about and, in particular, from the real situation. Man has to be affected with happiness. It is a tonality given to him.

JEAN-PAUL SARTRE, Notebooks for an Ethics
