Wise words #1: Arthur Schopenhauer

"It is difficult to find happiness within oneself, but it is impossible to find it anywhere else.”

Arthur Schopenhauer was a German philosopher (1788 – 1860).

This quote suggests we put unrealistic expectations on what others can give us, or perhaps what material goods and status can provide. Instead, Schopenhauer highlights we should look inwards. This is not an easy task, but a worthwhile one.
