Paradise Lost, Lapham's Quarterly - Arthur Schopenhauer
This quote fue agregado por
To measure life's happiness by its delights or pleasures is to apply a false standard. Pleasures are and remain something negative. That they produce happiness is a delusion, cherished by envy to its own punishment. Pain is felt to be something positive, and hence its absence is the true standard of happiness. And if, over and above freedom from pain, there is also an absence of boredom, the essential conditions of earthly happiness are attained.
