PHILOSOPHY OF HAPPINESS

 

 A THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL EXAMINATION BY MARTIN JANELLO

 

 

  INTRODUCTION

 

This collection of over 600 original quotes and poems contains reflections on common life issues that keep surfacing in our pursuits. Recognizing these issues and possessing astute techniques to address them are vital for maximizing our life and our enjoyment of it.

 

All these quotes and poems carry a connection with my book Philosophy of Happiness. This is hardly surprising since happiness fundamentally depends on how we fare in our pursuits and selecting their objectives. However, Philosophy of Happiness explores the entirety of human happiness and takes a comprehensive approach toward its accomplishment. This collection more topically addresses and illustrates a few of the most prominent concerns in human struggle.

 

Like Philosophy of Happiness, this book is not meant to state indisputable wisdom. Rather, its goal that is shared with all my other publications is to make readers think and feel, delve deeper into what matters for them, and find motivation and understanding for a better life.

 

A notable exception to matters covered in this collection is the pursuit of love and its vicinities. This motivation looms so large that it warrants the separate dedication ofGreen and black title plus stylized, 8-pronged white star with a green rhombus in each tip and separate rhombi on apricot background. a contemporaneously published collection, Love Knowing Love.

 

The third and fourth volumes in the Knowing series, Pine Knowing Pain and Shine Knowing Shame, continue to address some of the general themes raised in the initial two collections regarding the pursuit of human happiness.
