Happiness can be determined throughout many variable ways. Many things or certain ways can make people happy. Throughout all the stories we read about happiness determined it in many ways in the article “How to Buy Happiness” by Elizabeth Dunn and Michael Norton argues how we spend our money does it bring us or happiness or for the moment, and in “How Happy Are you?” by John Tierney discusses the happiness levels of people in the population on what in particular makes them happy. Therefore their isn’t a measure of quality on happiness just as love, you can be in a relationship with someone for years and feel nothing, but can be in a relationship for two months and feel everything. Time is not a measure of quality; of infatuation, or love. I think it’s based on how a person feels and what makes them happy and more positive about themselves.
