A HAPPY LIFE

Aiming after a happy life is common to lovers of knowledge and to Christians; but where is happiness to be found? 

He, who is good, is good that he may be happy; and he, who is bad, would not be bad if he did not hope that he might be happy thereby.

As touching the good, they are good because they seek a happy life; as touching the bad, if I could say to them -- "Do you wish to be happy?" -- they would answer -- "We do." But while they aspire after the reward of the good, they do evil. A happy life is the reward of the good; goodness is the work, happiness is the reward.

St. Augustine
