The next, you’re drowning in a watery grave.

Get robbed by a hueless pale?
Why did the excitement I used to feel
Disintegrate into a pond of tears?
Happiness is a thing we all aspire to achieve. But despite our intentions, we fail in reaching this ideal state. It seems like an illusion – like something we’re not destined to enjoy in this life.

To celebrate this occasion, I’ve compiled a list of 5 quotes by philosophers and writers you might find helpful. Feel free to leave suggestions for future topics in the comments or Contact Form.
When we think of ‘good’, we usually think of an extreme. Eating? Only eat good food. Telling the truth? Never lie. Exercising? Become a Greek God. But a certain Greek philosopher, Aristotle, thought otherwise.
“It would be better for me… that multitudes of men should disagree with me rather than that I, being one, should be out of harmony with myself.”
~ Socrates (via Plato’s dialogue ‘Gorgias’)
