Wittgenstein on Happiness in the Present Moment

“There are two godheads: the world and my independent I.
I am either happy or unhappy, that is all. It can be said: good or evil do not exist.
A man who is happy must have no fear. Not even in the face of death.
Only a man who lives not in time but in the present is happy.”

— Ludwig Wittgenstein, Journal, 8 July 1916
