ON CONTENTMENT AND AMBITION

So contentment should be the be-all and end-all of one's seeking. Attainment of it is, of course, a Herculean task. But once achieved, it makes the owner peerless. For, it wraps him with heavenly bliss that could shield him from the blinding flashes and deafening thunders of the evil forces. He is a master unto himself, and so the master of the universe. He lives in harmony with himself, and the whole world at large. He exudes peace, grace, and ease always. Is he not a paragon of virtue? Why, more!

This is the sum and substance of a short and simple poem by sir H. Wotton entitled "The character of A Happy Life". The author lists down the merits of contentment enshrined in a person characterized by his uncommon gentleness. That happy proud man in whom that contentment is enthroned is born noble and is taught in simplicity. He is independent and self-sufficient. fie serves none. He puts on 'honesty' as an Armour that protects him from external danger.
