If you have some free time, take a look at What makes a good life? Lessons from the Longest Study on Happiness; there's a video and the article ends with a quote from Mark Twain. More than a century ago, he was looking back on his life, and he wrote this:

"There isn't time, so brief is life, for bickerings, apologies, heartburnings, callings to account. There is only time for loving, and but an instant, so to speak, for that."
