Happy in Sumer



carved on
ancient Sumerian tablet :-



The wealthy are rarely happy

The powerful are rarely happy

But if you've nothing, you can sleep




and several thousand years later



Forsake all and You will find all



Update 2013 - Here's latest research:-

It says - Privileged Pleasure / Wealth / Power is Unhealthy.  Good Happiness has Meaning.




"Happy people tend not to value material possessions highly, are less affected by advertising and propaganda, are not as driven by desire for power and achievement.

Why would they? They are happy already"


"The Future of Happiness" by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
from "The Next Fifty Years" edited by John Brockman
