Often he is unduly unhappy, because he has been told that he is miserable. So many maladies have been sug gested to him that he tosses in pain upon his bed, as if he were really ill He has been led to beliwe that he cannot live beyond the age of eighty years, that he can develop only by exterminating his fellow-creatures or by laying down his life for them. He has been taught the prejudices of race, of religion, of riches. As a result man dies before his time, lives in a state of permanent warfare, hates his brother, creates around himself an atmosphere of envy, and suffers from the wounds that are thus inflicted. 2 The Science of Happiness Man is so accustomed to Hearing his misfortunes discussed that it is very difficult for him to listen to those who speak to him of his happiness. His philosophy is mournful, as well as his morality, his poetry, his literature, and especially his history He has been painted in such gloomy hues that he believes the brighter portraits to be inferior in their essence. He does not seem to understand that it is much easier to colour things black, just as it is easier to do evil than to do good. But man is full of contradictions. He desires long life and he yearns for happiness yet in reality he lives only a small portion of his existence and patiently sustains himself upon woes which he cre ates of his own free will or permits others to impose. We shall never be able to do enough to combat these tendencies, which are so harmful to our destinies. Conflict is noble, and hope is sub lime, to use the words of Plato. So let us enter upon a battle for our happiness, a battle that is now more necessary than ever. A transformed society requires different thoughts for its guidance. The people should not only possess sovereign power, but their life and their virtues should also become sovereign. It is high time to restore to the people their happiness, just as their political rights have been redeemed. We are wrong to give our compre Introduction 3 hension of life the same immobility that ancient Egypt bestowed upon her gods. The time has come for the reshaping of our ideas of goodness longing, sorrow, as well as of happiness. But let us reassure disenchanted souls. We are not members of the Pangloss family, who believe that everything is for the best in this best of worlds. Our greatness presupposes our woes. But these are not life, nor do they make man. Everything depends upon the angle from which they are beheld. Democritus laughed, and Hera clitus wept over the vices of men, for all our acts seem comical to some, tragical to others. The best course is to apply them all to the ad vantage of our happiness. After all, if we con sider man happier than he really is, perhaps some additional happiness will follow. But misfortune, in any case, will have gained nothing. The reader will pardon the preceding explana tion. It is not out of place. Men may be sad dened with impunity, but even the desire to throw the windows wide open for the entrance of warmth and light is beginning to be regarded as dangerous.
