The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions.
Alfred Tennyson
You say that my way of thinking cannot be tolerated? What of it? The man who alters his way of thinking to suit others is a fool. My way of thinking is the result of my reflections. It is part of my inner being, the way I am made. I do not contradict them, and would not even if I wished to. For my system, which you disapprove of, is also my greatest comfort in life, the source of all my happiness, it means more to me than my life itself.
Marquis de Sade
Be happy. It’s one way of being wise.
