Philosophy cannot give any man complete happiness, because it cannot make him completely oblivious of every tragedy which is happening around him. But it can give him the greatest possible happiness that life on this earth can yield. And this will not have the fragility and transiency of every other kind but will rest upon a rocklike, lasting base.
