Happiness

I am currently reading a book which expounds on Aristotle's thinking on Happiness.

In the book, there are myriads of definitions of Happiness but what I find very true is that "Happiness is the highest good that man seeks in life".

To see this, just see the logic in some of the everyday conversations overheard:

"I want to be strong in order to be happy"

rather than "I want to be happy in order to be strong".

thus to be happy is the highest good one seeks, most of the things that man seeks in life is finally to seek happiness.
