“The aim

of the wise

is not to

secure pleasure,

but to avoid



~ Aristotle


Sticking one’s foot into one’s mouth is a pain.

Banging one’s head against the wall is a pain.

I’ll show you, I’ll hurt myself is a pain.

Selfish, self-centered, arrogant, grandiose

and egotistical is a pain.

The pleasure does not have to be sought,

it will arrive to fill the void

after the pain has gone away.

Today, be wise, be humble,

avoid the heartaches and be happy.

Happiness is avoiding the pain.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
