Arthur Schopenhauer: Don’t Chase Happiness

“Every possession and every happiness is but lent by chance for an uncertain time, and may therefore be demanded back the next hour.”

“The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom.”

“Happiness consists in frequent repetition of pleasure”

“The safest way of not being very miserable is not to expect to be very happy.”

“There is only one inborn error. and that is the notion that we exist in order to be happy.”

“There is no more mistaken path to happiness than worldliness, revelry, high life.”

Arthur Schopenhauer
Nothing you DO can make you happy.
