From Schism and Conscience: Solzhenitsyn’s First Circle and Cancer Ward, by Matthew Raphael Johnson:
Happiness does not depend on physical surroundings, it depends on the guarding of the soul, the freedom that exists solely because this soul is not material, and hence is not amenable to manipulation by the state. But the most important element of this character is the idea that freedom is happiness, and happiness can only exist when the soul remains itself, and is not distorted by external elements.

Happy New Year!
