All persons want to be happy and all have their own conception of a happy life. Some think they can be happy if they are able to get a lot of money. Others think they might be happy if they have power over others and if they are considered as 'great men' by others.
According to Henry Wotton, a happy life is free from flattery and worldliness. Happy is the man who does not fear death, who is not impulsive. Such a person never hopes to rise in life nor does he fear to have a fall. According to Alexander Pope, real happiness can only be derived from solitude and a person who lives in solitude is a happy person. A happy man enjoys life, good health and peace of mind.
