For someone known to terrify people, Alfred Hitchcock's mellow, wondrous definition of happiness has us pleasantly surprised.
Hitchcock would've been 114 today, and we're sharing the video above in tribute to the famed director.
"I think hatred is wasted energy, and it's all non-productive," he says in the one-minute clip.
I know we're only human. We do go in for these various emotions, call them negative emotions. But when all these are removed and you can look forward and the road is clear ahead and now you're going to create something, that's as happy as I would ever want to be.
We love that thought.
