Excerpt from The Art of Being Happy: From the French of Droz, 'Sur L'art D'etre Heureux;' In a Series of Letters From a Father to His Children; With Observations and Comments
In a word, I do not offer the text, as an exact translation, but as the only treatise within the compass of my reading, which has discussed the pursuit of happiness, as a science or an art and as one which has advanced more elo quent and impressive sentiments upon the subject, than I have elsewhere met. With the slight alterations, which I have made, I have found this book to meet my own thoughts; and I have laid out of the text all phrases and passages, which spoke otherwise. I have availed myself of the words of another, because they have expressed my own views better than I could have hoped to express them myself. This explanation will be my reply to'all remarks, touching mistranslation, or liberties taken with the author.
