• What really matters here is that what they understood for happiness is different from what happiness might be for us.
    They found happiness in getting together everyday with friends, share moments with the family, and see the good through simplicity. On the other hand, these things, although not disappeared, were losing effect thanks to technology, and now we find happiness in a more "material" way.
    So I suppose that we are equally 'happy', but that happiness is represented differently.
  • Fore-father means grandfather or ancestor...

    • Thank you a lot :)

      We have more freedom and humans rights are more protected nowadays and I think we are happier than our fore-father.

  • What is the meaning of "fore-fathers"? I have not found meaning of this word in dictionary.
  • No we are not happier than our fore-father...and they are not happier than us..

      ...because happiness is not something  related in time it's something  related in faith God said in quoran :

    "Those who believe (in the Qur´an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve."

  • Thanks abcampelo for your elaboration of the topic.

  • Very thoughtful comment Lynne. Thanks a lot.

  • Thanks

    • You are welcome @Mishaikh, honestly this is the nice topic for sharing our feel about happyness itself.

  • Happiness in my opinion is accepting of everything without worries about anything that we can not get in life, or always feel quite enough with everything we have. Notable we have to make every endeavour first and the last thing is accepting action for the result. I am still learning for that.

    No matters to facing different circumtances, because standarization of happyness of everyone will different. So be grateful for eveything in our life.
