The Meaning of Life


People who consider happiness to be the ultimate value to be persued in life will always be unhappy.  LIfe was not designed to make us happpy.  Happiness is only a byproduct of a good life, not its goal – and a good life is hard won.  Life was designed for maturity – a process impelled by suffering, not by the desire to maximize pleasure and minimize pain.  Mature people – elders – value joy, not happiness.
