PHILOSOPHY OF HAPPINESS

 

 A THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL EXAMINATION BY MARTIN JANELLO

 

  INTRODUCTION

 

This collection of over 600 original quotes and poems contains contemplations on issues surfacing in the pursuit of human happiness, and on love in particular. It continues to address some of the general themes raised in my earlier collections, Live Knowing Life and Love Knowing Love.

 

Together with these, this installment is connected to my book Philosophy of Happiness, which explores the entirety of human happiness and takes a comprehensive approach toward its accomplishment. My prior collections already focused their inquiries on limited salient topics of happiness. This one further concentrates on poetic expressions and quotational references that I did not deem sufficiently exhausted.

 

Like my other works, this book is not meant to state indisputable wisdom. Rather, its goal is to make readers think and feel, delve deeper into what matters for them, and find motivation and understanding for a better life. In this effort, short quotes and poems of the type included in this and my other collections are missioned to provide crystallization points from which thoughts and emotions of readers can take their own courses of development. As companions to the systematic explorations underYellow and black title plus stylized, 8-pronged white star with a yellow rhombus in each tip and separate rhombi on purple background. Philosophy of Happiness, they are to more spontaneously inspire readers in the discovery and definition of what happiness means to them.

 

The fourth volume in the Knowing series,  Shine Knowing Shame, which followed this third volume, continues to address some of the general themes raised in the previous collections regarding the pursuit of human happiness.
