Happiness for a Lifetime

In her talk about "The How of Happiness", Sonja Lyubomirsky quoted a famous Chinese proverb:


If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a month, get married.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody else.

I can't figure out what is the original Chinese version. Nevertheless this strikes me as really insightful. Follow the link to read about her talk on happiness and positive psychology.
