When it comes to one, it comes as naturally as sleep.”. Antonia, a blissfully innocent foriegn girl, would agree with this thought. In the beginning of the book Antonia and Jim are introduced, they can’t speak one word to each other however they get along just fine. They run along and upon a hill they, “could see the gold tree-tops, [Jim] pointed toward them, and Ántonia laughed and squeezed [his] hand as if to tell... how glad she was [he] had come”. Two children of different cultures put together for the first time find happiness together in the surrounding scenery.
Antonia embodies the philosophy that happiness comes from within, that it “comes as naturally as sleep.” Antonia, like many women and immigrants in the earlier twentieth century, faces unquestionable hardships throughout the story as she adjusts to a new life. Yet, the quintessence of her character remains relatively unchanged every time Jim revisits her. Jim first describes Antonia as an eager companion and someone who “had opinions about everything, and she was soon able to make them known” (Book I, Chapter IV). The author characterizes her as a vibrant child and full of energy, qualities exhibited by confident and happy children despite the fact that Antonia is in a new environment and possesses a limited understanding of English.

Angela chose to focus on her daughter and the friends she’s made and as a result she considers herself a happy person.
This is achieved through adding a sense of realism as to how happiness should be experienced. Thus, it provides tangible means for people to grasp an abstract concept such as happiness. As a result, this enables her to persuade readers to take up her advice. For example, she draws links between the need to experience happiness with others through studies and real-life evidence regarding the lack of the time spent with others e.g., only 24 hours a year spent socialising (Whippman, 2017). This shows us the real-life implication of our actions in search of isolated happiness which has caused an unintended outcome on us as we are supposed to share joyous moments together.
