“The Fountain of Content Must Spring Up in the Mind.”

“The Fountain of Content Must Spring Up in the Mind.”

"The fountain of content must spring up in the mind...he who has so little knowledge of human nature, as to seek happiness by changing any thing but his own dispositions, will waste his life in fruitless efforts, and multiply the griefs which he purposes to remove."

-- Samuel Johnson, The Rambler, No. 6
