S: Live Laugh Love - The Pursuit of Happiness - John Abbott 2012 Melina Longo

BC: The Pursuit of Happiness John Abbott College 2012 Melina Longo | Of all people only those are at leisure who make time for philosophy, only those are really alive. - Seneca (p.23 On the shortness of life) 0

1: 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 (P.23 -The Happiness Hypothesis - Jonathan Haidt )

2: Pleasures must be spaced to maintain their potency. — Jonathan Haidt (P.96 The Happiness Hypothesis) | He who fears dead will never do anything worthy of a living man. - Seneca (P. 93 On the Shortness of Life)

3: We got more pleasure from making progress toward our goals than we do from achieving them because, as Shakespeare said, “Joy’s soul lies in the doing.” — Jonathan Haidt ( P.221 The Happiness Hypothesis)

4: We must be indulgent to the mind, and from time to time must grant it the leisure that serves as its food and strength. And, too, we ought to take walks out-of-doors in order that the mind may be strengthened and refreshed by the open air and much breathing; sometimes it will get new vigor from a journey by carriage and a change of place and festive company and generous drinking. At times we ought to reach the point even of intoxication, not drowning ourselves in drink, yet succumbing to it; for it washes away troubles, and stirs the mind from its very depths and heals its sorrow just as it does certain ills of the body; and the inventor of wine is not called the Releaser on account of the license it gives to the tongue, but because it frees the mind from bondage to cares and emancipates it and gives it new life, and makes it bolder in all that it attempts.- Seneca, (P. 105 On the shortness of Life)

6: The braver one is, the happier he is. - Seneca (P. 102 On the Shortness of Life)

7: Children need love to develop properly, Children need mothers. -Johathan Haidt ( P.112 The Happiness Hypothesis )

9: What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty; live immediately. - Seneca (P. 13 On the Shortness of Life)

10: We are in the habit of saying that it was not in our power to choose the parents who were allotted to us, that they were given to us by chance. But we can choose whose children we would like to be. – Seneca (P. 25 On the Shortness of Life)

11: Is it within your power to have your body perform perfectly whenever you want . -Epictetus (P62 Of Human Freedom)

13: Don't be surprised if so great a goal costs you many a sacrifice. – Epictetus (P.80 Of Human Freedom.)

14: The benefits of generosity are increased because one gains friends - Johnathan Haidt (P.50 The happiness hypothesis) | Charlemagne PEI High School Project 2011: Used soccer items for Cuba.

15: You can't fix a plant; you can only give it the right conditions – water, sun and soil – and then wait. It will do the rest. Jonathan Haidt (P,219 The Happiness Hypothesis)

17: No man, woman, or child is an island. We need others to complete us - Johnathan Haidt (P. 134 The Happiness Hypothesis)

19: To trump all others in importance is the strength and number of a person's relationships. -Jonathan Haidt (P.94 The Happiness Hypothesis)

20: Displays of familal love often move people to tears - Johnathan Haidt (P. 111 The Happiness Hypothesis)

21: The first step is to see it as a game and stop taking it so seriously. - Jonathan Haidt (P. 77 The Happiness Hypothesis)

23: There is usually something good mixed in with the bad, and those who find it have found something precious. – -Jonathan Haidt (P.141 The Happiness Hypothesis)
