  2019年12月英语四级美文:The Road to Happiness

  1.The Road to Happiness

  2.If you look around at the men and women whom you can call happy,

  3.you will see that they all have certain things in common.

  4.The most important of these things is an activity

  5.which at most gradually builds up something

  6.that you are glad to see coming into existence.

  7.Women who take an instinctive pleasure in their children

  8.can get this kind of satisfaction out of bringing up a family.

  9.Artists and authors and men of science get happiness in this way

  10.if their own work seems good to them.

  11.But there are many humbler forms of the same kind of pleasure.

  12.Many men who spend their working life in the city

  13.devote their weekends to voluntary

  14.and unremunerated toil in their gardens,

  15.and when the spring comes,

  16.they experience all the joys of having created beauty.

  17.The whole subject of happiness has,

  18.in my opinion, been treated too solemnly.

  19.It had been thought that man cannot be happy

  20.without a theory of life or a religion.

  21.Perhaps those who have been rendered unhappy by a bad theory

  22.may need a better theory to help them to recovery,

  23.just as you may need a tonic when you have been ill.

  24.But when things are normal a man should be healthy without a tonic

  25.and happy without a theory.

  26.It is the simple things that really matter.

  27.If a man delights in his wife and children,

  28.has success in work,

  29.and finds pleasure in the alternation of day and night,

  30.spring and autumn,

  31.he will be happy whatever his philosophy may be.

  32.If, on the other hand,

  33.he finds his wife fateful, his childrens noise unendurable,

  34.and the office a nightmare;

  35.and at night sighs for the light of day,

  36.if in the daytime he longs for night,

  37.then what he needs is not a new philosophy but a new regimen

  38.a different diet, or more exercise, or what not.

  39.Man is an animal,

  40.and his happiness depends on his physiology more than he likes to think.

  41.This is a humble conclusion,

  42.but I cannot make myself disbelieve it.

  43.Unhappy businessmen, I am convinced,

  44.would increase their happiness more by walking six miles every day

  45.than by any conceivable change of philosophy.
