Wenig macht die Art des besten Glücks, says Nietzsche, or rather the person “Zarathustra” in that novel of his. It takes little to make the best happiness. Note that he does not say just “happiness”, nor “the greatest happiness”, but the best happiness, “that kind of happiness which is the right one just for me!”

If you want to express outright feelings, talk Italian. Italy gave us the opera.

If you want to express mixed feelings, or if you need to explore what your feelings are, talk French. France gave us Stendhal.

If you want to express your thoughts, talk German. Germany gave us Nietzsche.

If you want to express your dreams, talk Swedish. Sweden gave us Ingmar Bergman.

If you want some action, talk English. Shakespeare!
