{Quote} Measuring Happiness

“I thought it was demeaning the sublime value that human society should be pursuing.  And I also worried that developing metrics could lead to pursuing what is measurable and what is quantifiable, thereby risking the possibility of leaving out what is not quantifiable — but may be far more meaningful and far more important to creating the conditions for happiness.”

— “The Happiness Metric,” Tricycle magazine Fall 2014 p57
