    Young Aristotle was smart. That little bee seems happy enough!

  2. That’s so true.
    How you see this world can affect how you feel. :)

  3. Andrewstotle says:

    Ah… a quote I can agree with, and that’s what makes happiness so damn hard to sustain sometimes, in my experience. Maybe someone else could take charge of it for me?

    Isn’t that the truth…which, I see, has been around for a long time and yet we still need to be reminded of it!

      I look forward to your Dudmaston post, I visited just a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t get to venture too far into the grounds because I was visiting with someone who had a poorly foot…

      I do have one or two photos from the day though.

    … and on our connection with our Maker.

  10. Sean Jeating says:

    “Happiness depends upon yourself”, laughed the rapists, and setting fire he added, “and upon your connection with your maker, ha ha ha …”

    Does everyone think, the victim of such a bastard would consider Aristotle a wise man?

    • CherryPie says:

      I would say the rapists aren’t happy that is why they do what they do…

      As to the victims of the rapists (we are all victims of some injustice or other)… They have two choices. Let the incident rule their life or move on (happiness depends on yourself). Obviously it is not that easy in practice…

      And ‘Mother Nature’ is a great healer :-)
