ON SUFFERING


 


THE HAPPY LIFE

The wise are not broken by bodily ills, nor are they disturbed by misfortunes; but they remain happy even amid troubles.

Bodily adversities do not diminish the gift of the happy life or take away anything from its sweetness.

For Life's happiness does not lie in bodily pleasure, but in a conscience pure of every stain of sin and in a mind aware that the good is also the pleasurable, even though it is harsh, and that the shameful does not give delight, even though it is sweet.

St. Ambrose
