Quote by Ian Williams
We made happy sounds because we were upset... just trying to make a positive situation out of a negative one.
This quote expresses the idea that sometimes when we are upset or in a negative situation, we may try to create happiness or positivity as a way to cope. It suggests that despite the difficulties or challenges we may face, we seek ways to find and spread joy in order to transform a negative experience into a more positive one.
In this world, only those people who have fallen to the lowest degree of humiliation, far below beggary, who are not just without any social consideration but are regarded by all as being deprived of that foremost human dignity, reason itself -- only those people, in fact, are capable of telling the truth. All the others lie.
Socrates famously said that the unconsidered life is not worth living. He meant that a life lived without forethought or principle is a life so vulnerable to chance, and so dependent on the choices and actions of others, that it is of little real value to the person living it. He further meant that a life well lived is one which has goals, and integrity, which is chosen and directed by the one who lives it, to the fullest extent possible to a human agent caught in the webs of society and history.http://www.acgrayling.com/meaningintro.html
