In the interview given for the Al Jazeera, Jose Mujica, Uruguay president talks about happiness and philosophy, among other things.
I just pulled up some of the most interesting.
What do you think is the secret to happiness?
To live in accordance with how one thinks.
To talk to the man you carry inside.
It’s the companion we carry to our grave.
Be yourself and don’t try to impose your criteria on the rest.
I don’t expect others to live like me. I want to respect people’s freedom, but I defend my freedom.
And that comes with having the courage to say what you think even if sometimes others don’t share those views.
