John, who thought or affected to think very differently from me onthese subjects, shook his head gently, but, with his usual goodbreeding, deemed it rather too sore a subject for discussion. "I will tell you a discovery I have made, " said I. "And what is it?" "Listen: that man is wisest who is happiest, --granted. What doeshappiness consist in? Power, wealth, popularity, and, above all, content!

Who is sobeloved as a fool? Every man seeks him, laughs at him, and hugs him. Who is so secure in his own opinion, so high in complacency, as a fool?/sua virtute involvit/.
