Let’s look at another word for happiness – the ancient Greek word:
Lit. ‘good spirit’, ‘blessed’, ‘doing well’, living well’.
“Happiness is an activity of the soul in accordance with virtue.”
“…one whose activities accord with complete virtue, with an adequate supply of external goods, not just for any time but for a complete life…[and who] will also go on living this way and will come to an appropriate end.”
Note: Aristotle would say that Abd Er-Rahman III had misunderstood the nature of happiness.
