No one has the responsibility to make you happy. It is a very common misconception to believe things that lie outside of ourselves can make us happy. If you ask an unhappy person what it would take to make them happier, they will most likely enumerate the many (material) things that lie beyond their grasp. 1 How happy is the one who does not walk in the advice of the wicked or stand in the pathway with sinners or sit in the company of mockers! 2 Instead, his delight is in the LORD's instruction, and he meditates on it day and night.

  "The Joyful Wisdom," written in , just before "Zarathustra," is rightly judged to be one of Nietzsche's best books. Here the essentially grave and masculine face of the poet-philosopher is seen to light up and suddenly break into a delightful smile.   Specifically, I want to write about a book by Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, a Toltec Wisdom Book.A very long title for a very short book .

quotes from Aristotle: 'Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.', 'It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.', and 'What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.'.   Or consider Proverbs , “Happy is the one who finds wisdom.” Biblical wisdom is not a dead-end street leading to a cul-de-sac of misery. It is the path to deep and lasting happiness. Or consider Proverbs – My son, eat honey, for it is good, and the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to your taste. Know that wisdom is such to.
