What right has anyone to believe that man was born into the world to be happy? In the Arabian Nights, it is written, “Happiness must be earned.” We are born with a divine birthright—a mind, a heart, two hands, and two feet. If any of these be missing at the time of our appearance, we have some other function proportionately developed to take its place. With these tools, we may go forth and earn happiness, but we have no right to assume that someone is going to thrust it upon us.
