The Difference Between Happiness And Pleasure
A wonderful quote from Chateaubriand tells us how to live our life.
“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”
Chateaubriand describes an ideal of life that probably few people are fortunate enough to reach but that we must all strive for: To find as much satisfaction in our work as in our leisure time.
This is the best way to find happiness – and not only pleasure – in our life and to share our joy with those around us.
