FC: The Happiness Hypothesis | Samantha Lamothe

1: Why do you see the speck in your neighbor's eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye?... You hypocrite, first you take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor's eye. -Matthew 7:3-5

2: Good men, at all times, surrender in truth all attachments. The holy spend not idle words on things of desire. When pleasure or pain comes to them, the wise feel above pleasure and pain. -Budda

3: Do not seek to have events happen as you want them to, but instead want them to happen as they do happen, and your life will go well. -Epictetus

4: If Passion drives, let Reason hold the Reins. -Benjamin Franklin

5: It is easy to see the faults of others, but difficult to see one's own faults. One shows the faults of others like the chaff winnowed in the wind, but one conceals one's own faults as a cunning gambler conceals his dice. -Buddha

6: For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you want. -Saint Paul, Galatians

7: That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow; this, in a few words, is the entire Torah; all the rest is but an elaboration of this one central point. -Rabbi Hillei 1st century, BCE

8: Zigong asked: "Is there any single word that could guide one's entire life?" The master said: "Should it not be reciprocity? What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others." -Analects of confucius

9: The whole universe is change and life itself is but what you deem it. -Marcus Aurelius

10: What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: our life is the creation of our mind. -Buddha

11: No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. -John Donne

12: No one can live happily who has regard to himself alone and transforms everything into a question of his own utility; you must live for your neighbor, if you would live for yourself. -Seneca

13: What doesn't kill me makes me stronger. -Neitszche

14: When heaven is about to confer a great responsibility on any man, it will exercise his mind with suffering, subject his sinews and bones to hard work, expose his body to hunger, put him to poverty, place obstacles in the paths of his deeds, so as to stimulate his mind, harder his nature, and improve wherever he is incompetent. -Meng Tzu, Chine, 3rd cent. BCE

15: Set your heart on doing good. Do it over and over again, and you will be filled with joy. A fool is happy until his mischief turns against him. And a good man may suffer until his goodness flowers. -Buddha

16: We must not allow the ignoble to injure the noble, or the smaller to injure the greater. Those who nourish the smaller parts will become small men. Those who nourish the greater parts will become great men. -Meng Tzu, 3rd cent. BCE

17: God created the angels from intellect without sensuality, the beasts from sensuality without intellect, and humanity from both intellect, and humanity. So when a person's intellect overcomes his sensuality, he is better than the angels, but when his sensuality overcomes his intellect, he is worse than the beasts. -Muhammad

18: Who sees all beings in his own Self, and his own Self in all beings, loses all fear.... When a sage sees this great Unity and his Self has become all beings, what delusion and what sorrow can ever be near him? -Upanishads

19: I was entirely happy. Perhaps we feel like that when we die and become a part of something entire, whether it is sun and air, or goodness and knowledge. At any rate, that is happiness to be dissolved into something complete and great. -Willa Cather

20: All things come into being by conflict of opposites. -Heraclitus, C.500 BCE
