Truths about happiness and living a happy life endure through time. The same ideals the Ancient Greeks believed were central to happiness 2,500 years ago are still very true today. Virtue, goodness, honesty and truth are essential to happiness and feeling good about ourselves.
"A man who is not virtuous will never be happy."
~ Epicurus (Greek Philosopher 341-270 BCE)
"The Happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and a reasonable nature." ~ Marcus Aurelius (Emperor of Rome 121-180 AD)
Similar truths about happiness have been echoed and repeated throughout history by great writers, thinkers and philosphers from all different cultures, religions and life situations.
Money, fame and power do not bring happiness. Love, goodness and virtue do. No matter what you have materially, you cannot be happy if you don't feel good about who you are and what you do. This was as true in the time of Aristotle as it is today.
