Virtue and Happiness

Virtue and Happiness

Some will debate the origins of the probablistic relationship between virtue and happiness. They will disagree as to whether it is a gift from God or a natural result of the interaction of human genetics and their ecosystem. 

You may suit yourself regarding the origins of this natural relationship, but you would deny the fact of it at your own peril and also your loved ones.

Virtue really is not its own reward: The rewards may be delayed, but there are many others likely to come.

George Washington knew this and so should we all.

“There exists in the economy and course of nature an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness … we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” –George Washington, First Inaugural Address, 1789
