‘I do not know what it is except that it is something grand, and that it is Happiness.’ —
Walt Whitman


Happiness is not the same as pleasure, but it is generally built upon or grows out of pleasurable feelings. We must begin, our analysis with these, and with their opposites—the painful feelings.’ Daniel G. Brinton has tried to explain what happiness could possibly mean. This book explores pleasure and pain, the hierarchy of enjoyments, the distribution of happiness in the classes of society and in genders, principles to promote one’s own happiness and the consolations of affliction. This classic can be picked up by each one of those who are in an incessant pursuit of finding happiness in life or know someone who might be.
