Beings Capable of Happiness

"I serve You and worship You that I may be happy in You, to whom I owe that I am a being capable of happiness."
--St. Augustine, Confessions; quoted in David Naugle, Reordered Love, Reordered Lives: Learning the Deep Meaning of Happiness (Eerdmans, 2008), 21

Almost sounds like something written by John Piper, doesn't it?
