Why do you refuse the term “happiness”?

That’s because I think that happiness is not a value. I think it’s like a Sunday afternoon – something finally quite boring. What I want in my life is adventure, taking risks, confronting myself with obstacles and feeling alive. -Paulo Coelho

read it yesterday… could it be true?
