“After the Manner of Happiness”

2 Nephi 5:27

27 And it came to pass that we lived after the manner of happiness.

The Prophet Joseph Smith said:

“Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it; and this path is virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness, and keeping all the commandments of God.”

(History of the Church, 5:134–35.)
