Counsels and Maxims
by Arthur Schopenhauer, translated by Thomas Bailey Saunders
Counsels and Maxims represents the second part of Schopenhauer's work originally titled Aphorismen zur Lebensweisheit (first published in 1851) and translated by T. B. Saunders. The first part of the original has been translated under the name The Wisdom of Life. Both parts, however, deal with a single treatise with there being no division in the original.

Le bonheur n'est pas chose aisée: il est
très difficile de le trouver en nous, et impossible
de le trouver ailleurs.

CHAMFORT.
