Materialism and Happiness


“One day, Socrates stood gazing at a store that sold all kinds of wears. Finally, he said, “What a lot of things I don’t need.” … True happiness is not found in external advantages such as material luxury, political power, or good health. True happiness lies in not being dependent upon such random and fleeting things.” – from Sophie’s World, chapter 12
