    1) The happiness Oskar experienced is joy because he helped others and he was satisfied with that
    2) The happiness the party animal experienced is pleasure but it is only temporary because it is short-lived.

    1. Fullness of happiness and joy is one because he wanted to do what help the Jews to do and he believes what God’s plan to him. His plan of living life is helping others by providing materials for the, but God had other plans for him and to help them in another way

    2) The girl has pleasure as her kind of happiness because she was happy on what she was experiencing and she just wants to party and pleasure will never last because eventually, that moment of pleasure will end.

    1. Joy- God asked him to be a German “Moses” who freed poeple from Nazis
    2. Pleasure- she is not getting real happiness, she is just getting the thrill of the moment

    1) Joy because Oskar thought of helping the prisoners and freeing them. The very thought of being able to help out prisoners and making them happy probably gave him an inner peace and inner joy, knowing that what he did helped thousands, even if he had to die peniless.

    2) She experienced more of pleasure in this one. Pleasure is outer happiness, and more of enjoyment rather than joy, which is more of happiness that you/someone did something good for others. Jumping from party to party; that simply means she was not contended with one party and she need more happiness to fill in that hole. Her happiness was temporary only.

    1. ) It was more of joy because he wasn’t giving more than what he had to make others happy and this is usually what is generally good in society and Jesus’ standards.

    2.) It was more of pleasure because she needed something that isn’t portrayed as generally good to make her happy.

    1. We believe that it is joy that Oscar Schindler felt. It was joy because he died doing good, he saved a number Jews. He also knew that he did the right thing in helping others and defying Nazi’s unfair treatment

    2 We believe that it is pleasure the big animal party girl felt. It was pleasure because she didn’t do any good, She only did what she wanted to feel “happy” (pleasure).

    1.) He experienced joy by giving others joy. He sacrificed his business in order for others to be happy.

    2.) Experienced happiness in the form of pleasure because it was more temporary and she was self-centered in her motive.
