quotation of the week no. 48/2016

“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.”

                           Aristotle

I wish you happy imperfections.

When I thought of my happiness, I used to look for things which I desired, but I have never thought of what could remain imperfect in my life in order to stimulate me for improvement. 
I should have asked myself: what makes me unhappy that would make me very happy to solve?  As André Comte-Sponville stated, we need despair (that we will never reach true happiness) to feel happy!
