Freemason Wisdom: Voltaire On Living Well



"God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well."

~Voltaire
Lodge of Nine Sisters, Paris, France


We all possess the ability to live well. The problem is, so many people really don't know what they want, don't appreciate the things they have, and look to others to fulfill their needs. If you're looking for happiness and contentment through another person, or from external sources, you'll only know disappointment. Being content comes from within. Living well isn't about money, mansions, or expensive cars--look no further than Hollywood to see examples of that. It starts with who you are as a person.
