Quotes on Happiness

“The ancient philosophers saw themselves as describing not just an analytic method but above all a way of being, so they devised exercises to live out their philosophy. […] They promoted self-control to live out these teachings and they devised an exercise called “the examination of conscience” to asses how well they lived out the teachings day by day. These spiritual exercises were used by people with very different philosophies, but […] all agreed that such interior self-awareness was an essential component of a happy life.” – Abbot Christopher Jamison in Finding Happiness, pg. 19
