Margaret Storm Jameson: Happiness

Happiness comes of the capacity
to feel deeply,
to enjoy simply,
to think freely,
to risk life,
to be needed.

Margaret Storm Jameson (8 January 1891 – 30 September 1986) was an English journalist and author, known for her novels and reviews.

Jameson was a prominent president of the British branch of the International PEN association, from 1939, and active in helping refugee writers. She was a founding member of the Peace Pledge Union. Jameson was a socialist in the 1930s; although the outbreak of the Second World War caused her to recant her pacifism and later adopt anti-Communist views.
