I’m not a huge fan of Oprah’s, since she has helped thrust people into stardom like Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz but I thought this was a good interview with Thich Nhat Hanh. And it’s the transcript, not a clip. It is 9 webpages but worth it.

For instance, when I practice this exercise of breathing in, I’m aware of my eyes; breathing out, I smile to my eyes and realize that they are still in good condition. There is a paradise of form and colors in the world. And because you have eyes still in good condition, you can get in touch with the paradise. So when I become aware of my eyes, I touch one of the conditions of happiness. And when I touch it, happiness comes.”
