As Dalai Lama once said, “Happiness is not something really made. It comes from your own actions.” Russell writes “the happy life’’ from the point of view of a hedonist and a moralist. He believes that the good life is similar to the happy life. Although many people have different versions of what makes them happy, the principle is still the same- you must do good in the world and give back to the community. Russell agrees exactly this- he wants people to help the community and their loved ones but advises to not lose their happiness as a result of it.
There's certain benefits to thinking this way though. It's very important to keep one's own happiness and well being at the forefront of their mind. People should not be expected to constantly cater to others. Selflessness is completely overrated. Equality is not wrong to want something for himself, especially after servicing others his whole life.
For example, a true friend is who will encourage you when you are sad, make joke with you when you are happy, or listen to and help you on your problem. The phrase “true friend” sounds very short and easy, however, to find one is very difficult these days. When we mention about the word “true”, there is one thing that we all expect: Loyal. Loyal is one of the qualities that can define
And once we forgive we learn to see the beauty in our lives rather than the struggles and pain that we have gone through. “‘ I could be wildly wrong. But my sense of you is that you’re a good person, not a bad one.” … This, though, was different– hearing himself forgiven freely, by someone he trusted. He wasn’t sure, though, that she knew enough to forgive him. He told her the story in detail.
There are many difficulties when it comes to friendship, but the beauty of a good friendship is that good friends can power through them. Genuine friendships are excellent things to have. It’s nice to have somebody to confide in when you don’t know where to turn. In The Chosen, Reuven states that he “didn’t mean to offend you [Danny] or anything, I just want to be honest.’ ‘I want you to be honest’ Danny said.” (Page 119) These is the kind of relationships that good friends can have. They can just be honest with each other about their feelings, and not have to worry about judgement in a bad sense.
They themselves will be skilled at trusting, because trusting and trustworthiness enhance each other. Not only can we benefit from trusting others, but we can avoid the cost of distrust. Not trusting others is an isolating action, and will add to stress in terms of the personal worry and anxiety about what the other people might achieve without
It can be inferred that he will never be able to forgive himself after what he did. This story shows an important life lesson. We can learn from his experience because it teaches us to love others for who they are, not what they can not do. When we care for others despite how they look, we can achieve a better life full of less pride and learn to think about others before we think about
Despite the unpleasant result, Phil acted ethically because for Kant, he acted with good intentions. He wanted to help people regardless of the result. For me, I would always consider doing whatever that gives good consequences, such as cheering up my friend. However, if it is for bad intentions, like I cheer up my friend to let them do things in my favor, it is immoral. On the other hand, if I do something for the right reasons, such as I tried to helped my friend to fix the car because I wanted to help, but the problem was not resolved at the end, my action would still be moral because although the result is bad, it started with a good reason.
Fake things always come back to bite a fake person. A person should be grateful to others who help him/her in need and should not break his friendship if something happens. This essay will discuss one of the themes from Macbeth which is loyalty. Loyalty can be described as honesty, obedience, faithfulness etc. A person is loyal to someone if he/she is not double crossing them.
