Beware contentment!

Friday, 27 Jan 2017

Leibniz on Dr John Dunn. First posted Tuesday, 23 February 2016 at 21:33

“I do not think that there can be a blessedness in creatures that would be the satisfaction of every sort of desire, but rather that the true blessedness of a created mind consists in the unimpeded progress to greater goods. It is not enough to enjoy a contented and tranquil mind, for that also belongs to those in a stupor.”

Gottfried Leibniz in a letter to Christian Wolff of 21st February 1705.
