All if it happiness and removal of bitterness were only solved by such superficial things...
I know a lot of miserable folks who have lots of money, and more than a few miserable womanizers.
Rarely is happiness found in superficiality. Not saying wealth and beauty don’t have their benefits, but doesn’t mean all is coming up roses.
It's an unfortunate fact that a wonderfully sound ethics of happiness is not taught to our kids.
That Ethics, clear and simple, identifies virtues in the context of too much, too little or just right.
Patience, for instance, is one of Aristotle's virtues.
