A wise man once said…

…that happiness depends on fulfilling one’s function: “I only create problems for myself by suppressing my talent and failing to cooperate with others. Moreover, if I do not co-operate with others I have to do more than one job; and, of course, doing more than one job makes me more than one person, and a divided person is an unhappy person” (Waterfield, 23).

Deep stuff from a modern day (© 1993) translation of Chapter 1 of Plato’s Republic. I feel so enlightened!

There's nothing wrong with being a bookworm...
