尋找快樂之國


买这本书,是一年前的事了,看了一年,竟然还没看完,个中原因,并不是我看书慢,而是這本書,是要一個字一個字的看,一个句子一个句子的體會。

作者是一個愛發牢騷不快樂的人 他想去研究快樂,所以他想到處看看哪些國家最快樂,而他又發現世界上真的有人以快樂為研究專業,而且名稱就是快樂學教授,他從這位博士那兒得到非常多的數據,知道哪些國家被列為快樂指數高的,因此他踏上旅程,開始尋找快樂。於是他到了各個快樂指數很高的國家 去了解為什麼他們快樂;他也去全世界最不快樂的國家 來讓自己知道自己有多快樂。

你们凭什么那么快乐?他毫不掩饰自己的忿忿:这也叫快乐?他直截了当地提出疑问。從荷蘭、瑞士、不丹、泰國、美國、英國等,這些看起來快樂的國家,都有其很勉强的快樂。這世界最大的笑話,就是荒謬的人事,而這本書從頭到尾都在敍述這些看起來快樂,卻很荒謬的事。听起来是不是很好笑?

快乐是自寻的,烦恼也是自找的。每个人都希望得到快乐,然而我们在寻找快乐时,往往看不见快乐其实就在我们身边!

maybe u can also considering working as a social worker, think u will be a superb one; lending a helping hand to the many fortunate ppl out there.. yet are always wallowing in self-pity.

我也是買了它幾個月,卻一直未讀,縂覺得要找個適合的時刻才慢慢啃書。

覺得人尋找快樂簡直就是自尋煩惱。
就像人縂要走了一些路,經歷了一些事,才發現最好的原來就在身邊。

快樂一直就在心裏。

Ernie: mine is the original version, but left it at alor star; 得空要去买译本了,只是不懂翻译得好吗?

快乐看似简单,很多人总是要绕了一大圈才明白快乐其实离自己非常的近。会付出,知足,知道感恩,放的下跟看的开的人最快乐.

Happiness is always with us, if only you see it with a open heart. People tend to seek for something which is already there.
"when the door of happiness closed, another opens. But, often times we look so long at the closed door that we dont see the one which has been opened for us"

I agree that life gets easier when we start to accept and appreciate what we have rather then questioning what we dont have.

Learn to forgive and forget, remember to give while we take. When surrounding cant be changed, change your view. LIfe is flexible!

i believe in "the happiest people don,t necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.":)

A happy person will never realized that they are happy, as they never thought of it, that's why they are happy :p

请问《尋找快樂之國》的原版是不是Eric Weiner 写的 The Geography of Bliss:One Grump's Search for the Happiest Places in the World?
