    A.) Oskar Schindler was a happy person because he was rich and prominent, but it doesn’t end there. I would say he was a happy person because he was able to save the jews by sacrificing his own money for them. For him, it would had probably been a goal that he achieved.

    B.) she was happy because she was pleasured with her lifestyle. Its pleasure because she doesn’t enjoy true joy or happiness

    1. Joy- it was internal fulfilling happiness that lasts. It is satisfaction with your inner self , you are capable of questioning yourself and truthfully answering.
    2. Pleasure- it was external happiness with happiness that was short lived and very materialistic, at the end of the day, nothing is taken or learned from these experiences

    1.) He had experienced joy because we defined joy as the fullness of happiness while pleasure means unsustainable happiness. Joy is harder to earn than simple, temporary pleasure.

    2.) The party animal experienced pleasure because the one that is sustaining the happiness of the party animal is temporary, which is people. If there are no people, the party animal would not be happy, therefore what the party animal does in hopes of sustaining the temporary happiness is to keep hopping from party to party.

    1. Oskar Schindler experienced joy since he helped save lives of the Jews from the Nazis. Although he died penniless, he will always remember the moment where he saved lives and saving lives is priceless.

    2. The party animal experiences pleasure since her experiences are short-lived and she will forget what happens in the future.
