Where the world comes to study the Bible

Where Is Happiness?

  • Happiness is not found in pleasure, Clarence Macartney said. Lord Byron lived such a life if anyone did. He wrote, “The worm, the canker, and the grief are mine alone.”
  • Happiness is not found in money—Jay Gould, the American millionaire, had plenty of that. When dying, he said, “I suppose I am the most miserable man on earth.”
  • Happiness is not found in position and fame—Lord Beaconsfield enjoyed more than his share of both. He wrote, “Youth is a mistake, manhood a struggle, and old age a regret.”
  • Happiness is not found in military glory—Alexander the Great conquered the known world in his day. Having done so, he wept in his tent because, he said, “There are no more worlds to conquer.’”
