This is a sweeping definition of happiness and particularly touching given it was uttered by a science teacher in Odessa. Pavel Viktor began posting his lectures online so students who missed them could catch up. But his teaching style was so inspiring that he ended up with millions of views.

I like his humble comment, suggesting that a happy teacher is one who has made their subject understandable. I once had such a masterful maths teacher – with a blackboard and chalk and without extra homework or tutoring, she got an entire class three years ahead of the curriculum in two years. She just knew how to make it make sense.

‘Happiness is being understood.’
