The everpresent question of happiness

I found these reflective comments that were made by Godfrey Reggio who has many identities, the most well known is that of film maker.
First of all, I don't believe we're here to be happy. It is the result of, the effect of. I believe we are here to live creative lives........A life of creativity is a life of risk. It is a life going beyond the ordinary, of embracing the odyssey, of leaving your familiar, of trying to make a commitment.
Reggio is, from what a read, a most committed man. His films, which I have not seen, confront in a poetic way injustice of the earth and thereby injustice of ourselves.
