Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 172 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.Excerpt from Happiness Essays on the Meaning of LifeGreat numbers of thoughtful people are just now much perplexed to know what to make of the facts of life, and are looking about them for some reasonable interpretation of the modern world. They cannot abandon the work of the world, but they are conscious that they have not learned the art of work. They have to fight the battle of life, but they are not sure what weapons are fit for that battle. They are so beset by the cares of living that they have no time for life itself. They observe that happiness often eludes those who most eagerly pursue it; and that the meaning of life is often hidden from those whose way would seem to be most free. To this state of mind - hesitating, restless, and dissatisfied, in the world but not content to be of the world - the reflections of Professor Hilty, as published in Switzerland and Germany, have already brought much reassurance and composure; and their message seems hardly less applicable to English and American life. Here also the fever of commercialism threatens the vitality of idealism, and here also the art of life is lost in the pace of living. Religion to a great many educated people still seems, as Bishop Butler wrote in 1736, not so much as a subject of inquiry.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Happiness Essays on the Meaning of Life It might he fancied that a writer thus de scrihed must he a recluse or mystic, remote from the spirit of the modern world and judging ex periences which he does not share. Quite the contrary is the fat}. The philosophy of life which he teaches is wrought out of large experience, hoth of academic and political afairs, and that which draws readers to the author is his capa ciat to maintain in the midst of important duties of puhlic service an unusual detachment of de sire and an interior quietness of mi nd. His short Essays are the Meditations of Marcus ? ureli us, told in the language of modern life; the Imita tion of Christ, expressed with the academic re serve of a modern gentleman.
