Joseph Priestley

1733 - 1904

A Quote by Joseph Priestley on egotism, happiness, and justice

To me there is in happiness an element of self-forgetfulness. You lose yourself in something outside yourself when you are happy; just as when you are desperately miserable you are intensely conscious of yourself, are a solid little lump of ego weighing a ton.
