Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes


Have tried to find the author of this quote without success Does anyone out there know???? It isn’t Epicurus or Wilde. “Happiness= friends, free thought, and knowing yourself.” If I am not quoting myself, I always give credit to the author whose words have touched me.

Comments on: "Happiness" (96)

  1. “Epicurus on Happiness (Part 2) – British philosopher Alain De Botton discusses the personal implications of the ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus (341-270BCE) who was no epicurean glutton or wanton consumerist, but an advocate of “friends, freedom and thought” as the path to happiness.”


    It’s close. Just missing the “know thyself” which was pervasive in much of Greek thought.

  2. Unquestionably consider that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be
    on the internet the simplest factor to take note of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst other people consider concerns that they plainly don’t recognise about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the entire thing with no
    need side effect , people could take a signal. Will
    likely be back to get more. Thanks

    any methods to help protect against content from being
    stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    • That is the risk take we take when writing. I have many soundbites, and who knows what people do? I never quote unless I give credit but we are “out there” with our words and awful that people steal other words. They surely aren’t building good karma for themselves. Good luck with your blog.
