On Happiness

Posted by in Quotes

Just as the sick man longs for health, and the prisoner of war for liberty–just as the parched traveler in hot countries longs to see the cooling fountain, or the ice-bound polar voyager the sun rising above the horizon–just in the same way does poor mortal man long to be happy.
