Good Quote: On Happiness

From the interview with poet Charles Simic in this week's New York Times Magazine:

Q: What advice would you give to people who are looking to be happy?
A: For starters, learn how to cook.

We hope you are happy and cooking this weekend. Here are two poems by Charles Simic: "Cafe Paradiso" and "Crazy About Her Shrimp".
