Philosophy of the World

Happiness

 

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
~ Dalai Lama
“Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.”
~ William James

 

“Justice is a human invention. It’s not a natural given that if somebody harms you, you have to harm them back in proportion to the harm that they brought about.”

“Perhaps we would lead happier, more fulfilled lives if we just followed some simple ‘divine’ rules about how to behave, even if these are entirely human fabrications.”

“Philosophy can be very good at renewing its past and making it relevant to today”
“I see philosophy as enquiry: you can’t prejudge the outcome.”
