HAPPINESS

 

 

UNHAPPINESS

A man without God is absolutely ignorant and definitely unhappy. He is unhappy because he wants something and cannot possess it. He wants the truth but is incapable of knowing or even desiring to know.

Man is unhappy when he wants something and cannot have it. He is also unhappy when he obtains it but is in constant danger of losing it.

There is only one thing that you can desire, possess and keep permanently and that is God and heaven. Thus, only God and heaven can make man happy.
