One of my favourite quotes of all time is by Alfred Hitchcock. When asked for his definition of happiness he replied the following:
“A clear horizon, nothing to worry about on your plate. Only things that are creative and not destructive. That’s within yourself, within me I can’t bear quarreling I can’t bare feelings between people. I think hatred is wasted energy. It’s all nonproductive. I’m very sensitive. A sharp word said by, say a person who has a temper, if they’re close to me hurts me for days. I know we’re only human, we do go in for these various emotions, call them negative emotions, but when all these are removed and you can look forward and the road is clear ahead and now you’re going to create something. I think that’s as happy as I would ever want to be.”
I think when people remove themselves from the density of the city and look down on it, it clears the head of some of those negative emotions and we can think and see more creatively and clearly.
