For ~man's happiness consists in the vision of 75 1, 93 | paradise, led a life of happiness in the ~enjoyment of all 76 1, 93 | that place of ~ineffable happiness!" Therefore the first man 77 1, 93 | but not with that perfect ~happiness to which he was destined, 78 1, 93 | endowed with "a life of happiness in a ~certain measure," 79 1, 94 | are admitted to eternal happiness directly after death.~Aquin.: 80 1, 112 | sorrow, there is not perfect ~happiness: wherefore it is written ( 81 2, 1 | human life is stated to be ~happiness, we must consider (1) the 82 2, 1 | last end in general; (2) happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[1] Out. 83 2, 1 | desiring the last end, which is happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[1] A[7] 84 2, 1 | contrary, man's last end is happiness; which all men desire, as ~ 85 2, 1 | De Trin. xiii, 3,4). But "happiness is not possible for ~animals 86 2, 1 | objections are solved: since happiness means ~the acquisition of 87 2, 2 | THOSE THINGS IN WHICH MAN'S HAPPINESS CONSISTS (EIGHT ARTICLES)~ 88 2, 2 | We have now to consider happiness: and (1) in what it consists; ( 89 2, 2 | of inquiry: ~(1) Whether happiness consists in wealth?~(2) 90 2, 2 | Para. 1/1~Whether man's happiness consists in wealth?~Aquin.: 91 2, 2 | It would seem that man's happiness consists in wealth. For 92 2, 2 | consists in wealth. For since ~happiness is man's last end, it must 93 2, 2 | money." Therefore man's happiness ~consists in wealth.~Aquin.: 94 2, 2 | Boethius (De Consol. iii), happiness is "a ~state of life made 95 2, 2 | man desires. Therefore ~happiness consists in wealth.~Aquin.: 96 2, 2 | Eccles. ~5:9). Therefore happiness consists in wealth.~Aquin.: 97 2, 2 | good consists in retaining happiness rather than ~in spreading 98 2, 2 | applauded." Therefore man's happiness does not consist in ~wealth.~ 99 2, 2 | is impossible for man's happiness to consist in ~wealth. For 100 2, 2 | it is evident that man's happiness cannot consist in natural 101 2, 2 | Therefore it is ~impossible for happiness, which is the last end of 102 2, 2 | Para. 1/1~Whether man's happiness consists in honors?~Aquin.: 103 2, 2 | It would seem that man's happiness consists in honors. For ~ 104 2, 2 | consists in honors. For ~happiness or bliss is "the reward 105 2, 2 | Ethic. iv, 3). ~Therefore happiness consists especially in honor.~ 106 2, 2 | excellence seems especially to be happiness, which is the perfect good. ~ 107 2, 2 | honor and glory." ~Therefore happiness consists in honor. ~Aquin.: 108 2, 2 | man desires above all is happiness. But ~nothing seems more 109 2, 2 | loss of honor. Therefore ~happiness consists in honor.~Aquin.: 110 2, 2 | Para. 1/1~On the contrary, Happiness is in the happy. But honor 111 2, 2 | Ethic. i, 5). Therefore ~happiness does not consist in honor.~ 112 2, 2 | that, It is impossible for happiness to consist in honor. For ~ 113 2, 2 | proportion, especially ~to his happiness, which is man's perfect 114 2, 2 | he has a certain share of happiness. And therefore ~honor can 115 2, 2 | therefore ~honor can result from happiness, but happiness cannot principally 116 2, 2 | result from happiness, but happiness cannot principally consist ~ 117 2, 2 | virtue's true reward is happiness itself, for which the ~virtuous 118 2, 2 | his ~natural desire for happiness, from which honor results, 119 2, 2 | Para. 1/1~Whether man's happiness consists in fame or glory?~ 120 2, 2 | It would seem that man's happiness consists in glory. For ~ 121 2, 2 | consists in glory. For ~happiness seems to consist in that 122 2, 2 | revealed in us." ~Therefore happiness consists in glory.~Aquin.: 123 2, 2 | praised." Therefore man's happiness consists in glory.~Aquin.: 124 2, 2 | Para. 1/1 ~OBJ 3: Further, happiness is the most enduring good. 125 2, 2 | time." Therefore man's ~happiness consists in fame or glory.~ 126 2, 2 | Para. 1/1~On the contrary, Happiness is man's true good. But 127 2, 2 | praise." Therefore man's happiness does not consist in fame 128 2, 2 | 1/2~I answer that, Man's happiness cannot consist in human 129 2, 2 | human good, which ~is called happiness, cannot be caused by human 130 2, 2 | human knowledge of another's happiness proceeds from, and, in a 131 2, 2 | fashion, ~is caused by, human happiness itself, inchoate or perfect. 132 2, 2 | perfect. Consequently ~man's happiness cannot consist in fame or 133 2, 2 | presupposes perfect or ~inchoate happiness. But if the knowledge be 134 2, 2 | this is by accident. But ~happiness endures of itself, and for 135 2, 2 | Para. 1/1~Whether man's happiness consists in power?~Aquin.: 136 2, 2 | OBJ 1: It would seem that happiness consists in power. For all 137 2, 2 | of the gods." Therefore happiness ~consists in power.~Aquin.: 138 2, 2 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, happiness is the perfect good. But 139 2, 2 | are in power. Therefore happiness consists in power.~Aquin.: 140 2, 2 | 1~OBJ 3: Further, since happiness is supremely desirable, 141 2, 2 | contrary to power. Therefore happiness consists ~in power.~Aquin.: 142 2, 2 | Para. 1/1~On the contrary, Happiness is the perfect good. But 143 2, 2 | that, It is impossible for happiness to consist in power; and ~ 144 2, 2 | in Metaph. v, 12, whereas happiness has the nature of last end. ~ 145 2, 2 | to good and evil: whereas happiness ~is man's proper and perfect 146 2, 2 | perfect good. Wherefore some happiness might consist ~in the good 147 2, 2 | may be given to prove that happiness consists ~in none of the 148 2, 2 | goods. First, because, since happiness ~is man's supreme good, 149 2, 2 | since it is the nature of happiness to "satisfy of itself," 150 2, 2 | Ethic. i, 7, having gained happiness, man cannot lack any needful 151 2, 2 | Thirdly, because, since happiness is the perfect good, no 152 2, 2 | because man is ordained to happiness through principles that ~ 153 2, 2 | Therefore it ~is evident that happiness nowise consists in the foregoing.~ 154 2, 2 | is not ~enough for man's happiness, that he become like God 155 2, 2 | Para. 1/1~Whether man's happiness consists in any bodily good?~ 156 2, 2 | It would seem that man's happiness consists in bodily goods. 157 2, 2 | health of the body." But happiness consists in that which is 158 2, 2 | necessary. Since, ~therefore, happiness is man's supreme good, it 159 2, 2 | more than anything else to happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[2] A[5] 160 2, 2 | by all. Therefore man's happiness consists most of all in 161 2, 2 | other animals in regard to happiness. ~But in bodily goods he 162 2, 2 | fleetness. ~Therefore man's happiness does not consist in goods 163 2, 2 | is impossible for man's happiness to consist in the ~goods 164 2, 2 | their end. Consequently happiness, which is ~man's last end, 165 2, 2 | Para. 1/1~Whether man's happiness consists in pleasure?~Aquin.: 166 2, 2 | It would seem that man's happiness consists in pleasure. For ~ 167 2, 2 | in pleasure. For ~since happiness is the last end, it is not 168 2, 2 | Ethic. x, 2). Therefore happiness consists ~principally in 169 2, 2 | man's last end, which is happiness, consists principally in 170 2, 2 | best of all. Therefore ~happiness, which is the supreme good, 171 2, 2 | delights excel them: and yet happiness does not consist in ~them. 172 2, 2 | accident resulting ~from happiness, or from some part of happiness; 173 2, 2 | happiness, or from some part of happiness; since the reason that a ~ 174 2, 2 | good, is precisely man's happiness: and if it is imperfect, 175 2, 2 | imperfect, it is ~a share of happiness, either proximate, or remote, 176 2, 2 | good, the very essence of happiness, but something resulting ~ 177 2, 2 | bodily pleasure is neither ~happiness itself, nor a proper accident 178 2, 2 | nor a proper accident of happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[2] A[6] 179 2, 2 | the soul constitutes man's happiness?~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[2] A[7] 180 2, 2 | soul constitutes man's ~happiness. For happiness is man's 181 2, 2 | constitutes man's ~happiness. For happiness is man's good. Now this 182 2, 2 | and goods of the soul. But happiness does not ~consist in external 183 2, 2 | than all other ~goods. Now happiness is what is loved above all: 184 2, 2 | and desired. Therefore ~happiness consists in some good of 185 2, 2 | which is ~perfected. But happiness is a perfection of man. 186 2, 2 | perfection of man. Therefore happiness is ~something belonging 187 2, 2 | constitutes the life of happiness is to be loved for its own 188 2, 2 | for God's sake. Therefore happiness consists in no good of the ~ 189 2, 2 | end: since man attains happiness through his soul. Therefore 190 2, 2 | is that which constitutes happiness, and ~makes man happy; but 191 2, 2 | of this thing is called happiness. ~Consequently we must say 192 2, 2 | Consequently we must say that happiness is something belonging to 193 2, 2 | but that which constitutes happiness is something outside the 194 2, 2 | saying that what constitutes happiness is a good ~of the soul.~ 195 2, 2 | objection is concerned, happiness is ~loved above all, as 196 2, 2 | 3 Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 3: Happiness, itself, since it is a perfection 197 2, 2 | but that which constitutes happiness, ~viz. which makes man happy, 198 2, 2 | created good constitutes man's happiness?~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[2] A[8] 199 2, 2 | created good constitutes man's happiness. ~For Dionysius says (Div. 200 2, 2 | But man's highest good is happiness. Since then the angel is ~ 201 2, 2 | 1], it seems ~that man's happiness consists in man somehow 202 2, 2 | imperfect. ~Therefore man's happiness consists in the whole universe 203 2, 2 | good constitutes man's ~happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[2] A[8] 204 2, 2 | so God is man's life of happiness: of Whom it is ~written: ' 205 2, 2 | good to constitute man's ~happiness. For happiness is the perfect 206 2, 2 | constitute man's ~happiness. For happiness is the perfect good, which 207 2, 2 | alone ~constitutes man's happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[2] A[8] 208 2, 2 | is the ~common object of happiness of all the blessed, as being 209 2, 3 | Out. Para. 1/2 - WHAT IS HAPPINESS (EIGHT ARTICLES)~We have 210 2, 3 | now to consider (1) what happiness is, and (2) what things 211 2, 3 | of inquiry:~(1) Whether happiness is something uncreated?~( 212 2, 3 | Thes. Para. 1/1~Whether happiness is something uncreated?~ 213 2, 3 | OBJ 1: It would seem that happiness is something uncreated. 214 2, 3 | needs confess that God is happiness ~itself."~Aquin.: SMT FS 215 2, 3 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, happiness is the supreme good. But 216 2, 3 | supreme goods, it ~seems that happiness is the same as God.~Aquin.: 217 2, 3 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 3: Further, happiness is the last end, to which 218 2, 3 | Christ. i, ~5,22). Therefore happiness is the same as God.~Aquin.: 219 2, 3 | is uncreated. But man's happiness is ~something made; because 220 2, 3 | make us happy." Therefore happiness ~is not something uncreated. ~ 221 2, 3 | the ~last end is called happiness. If, therefore, we consider 222 2, 3 | therefore, we consider man's happiness ~in its cause or object, 223 2, 3 | as to the very essence of happiness, then it is something ~created.~ 224 2, 3 | 1/1~Reply OBJ 1: God is happiness by His Essence: for He is 225 2, 3 | And this ~participation of happiness, in respect of which man 226 2, 3 | 2 Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 2: Happiness is called man's supreme 227 2, 3 | 3 Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 3: Happiness is said to be the last end, 228 2, 3 | Thes. Para. 1/1~Whether happiness is an operation?~Aquin.: 229 2, 3 | OBJ 1: It would seem that happiness is not an operation. For 230 2, 3 | Therefore the last end, which is happiness, is not an ~operation.~Aquin.: 231 2, 3 | says (De Consol. iii) that happiness is "a ~state made perfect 232 2, 3 | indicate operation. Therefore happiness is not an operation.~Aquin.: 233 2, 3 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 3: Further, happiness signifies something existing 234 2, 3 | proceeding ~therefrom. Therefore happiness is not an operation.~Aquin.: 235 2, 3 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 4: Further, happiness remains in the happy one. 236 2, 3 | remain, but passes. Therefore happiness is not an operation.~Aquin.: 237 2, 3 | to one man there is one happiness. But operations are ~many. 238 2, 3 | operations are ~many. Therefore happiness is not an operation.~Aquin.: 239 2, 3 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 6: Further, happiness is in the happy one uninterruptedly. 240 2, 3 | by cessation. Therefore happiness is not an operation.~Aquin.: 241 2, 3 | says (Ethic. i, 13) that "happiness is ~an operation according 242 2, 3 | that, In so far as man's happiness is something created, ~existing 243 2, 3 | it is an operation. For happiness ~is man's supreme perfection. 244 2, 3 | imperfect. Consequently ~happiness must consist in man's last 245 2, 3 | ii, 3). Therefore man's happiness must ~of necessity consist 246 2, 3 | of ~the living. And thus happiness is not life: since it has 247 2, 3 | consist, is not ~that man's happiness; for of God alone is it 248 2, 3 | true that His Being is His ~Happiness. Secondly, life means the 249 2, 3 | 2: Boethius, in defining happiness, considered happiness in ~ 250 2, 3 | defining happiness, considered happiness in ~general: for considered 251 2, 3 | signified this by saying that happiness is "a state made perfect 252 2, 3 | expressed the ~very essence of happiness, showing by what man is 253 2, 3 | so it is that he ~proves happiness to be "the perfect good" ( 254 2, 3 | such an operation cannot be happiness: for such an operation is 255 2, 3 | such an operation can be ~happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[3] A[2] 256 2, 3 | 1/2 ~Reply OBJ 4: Since happiness signifies some final perfection; 257 2, 3 | various things capable of happiness can attain to various degrees 258 2, 3 | various meanings applied to happiness. For ~in God there is happiness 259 2, 3 | happiness. For ~in God there is happiness essentially; since His very 260 2, 3 | present state of life, perfect happiness ~cannot be attained by man. 261 2, 3 | Philosopher, in placing man's ~happiness in this life (Ethic. i, 262 2, 3 | has promised us perfect happiness, when we shall be "as the ~ 263 2, 3 | in regard to this perfect happiness, the objection fails: ~because 264 2, 3 | because in that state of happiness, man's mind will be united 265 2, 3 | we ~fall short of perfect happiness.

Therefore man's happiness consists in ~an operation 315 2, 3 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, happiness is man's perfect good. But 316 2, 3 | understanding. Therefore man's happiness consists in an ~act of the 317 2, 3 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 3: Further, happiness is a good of man himself. 318 2, 3 | passions. Therefore man's happiness consists in ~an operation 319 2, 3 | Para. 1/4~I answer that, Happiness consists in an operation 320 2, 3 | First because if man's happiness is an operation, it must 321 2, 3 | intellect. ~Consequently happiness consists principally in 322 2, 3 | whom he is made like by happiness. But in things ~pertaining 323 2, 3 | Therefore the last and perfect happiness, which we await in the life 324 2, 3 | contemplation. But imperfect happiness, such ~as can be had here, 325 2, 3 | and passions ~would be his happiness. But since man's last end 326 2, 3 | intellect; therefore, man's happiness consists in an operation 327 2, 3 | Thes. Para. 1/1~Whether happiness consists in the consideration 328 2, 3 | It would seem that man's happiness consists in the consideration ~ 329 2, 3 | says (Ethic. i, 13) that ~"happiness is an operation according 330 2, 3 | Therefore man's final ~happiness consists in the consideration 331 2, 3 | seems to be ~man's final happiness. Now such is the consideration 332 2, 3 | their own sakes. Therefore happiness consists in ~the consideration 333 2, 3 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 3: Further, happiness is man's final perfection. 334 2, 3 | these sciences, ~man's final happiness consists.~Aquin.: SMT FS 335 2, 3 | Therefore man's final happiness does not consist in the 336 2, 3 | above (A[2], ad 4), man's happiness is twofold, ~one perfect, 337 2, 3 | imperfect. And by perfect happiness we are to ~understand that 338 2, 3 | attains to the true notion of happiness; and by ~imperfect happiness 339 2, 3 | happiness; and by ~imperfect happiness that which does not attain 340 2, 3 | some particular likeness of happiness. Thus perfect prudence is 341 2, 3 | 2/2~Accordingly perfect happiness cannot consist essentially 342 2, 3 | can lead. Now man's final happiness, which is his final perfection 343 2, 3 | Consequently it follows that man's happiness cannot consist in the ~consideration 344 2, 3 | participation of true and perfect ~happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[3] A[6] 345 2, 3 | Philosopher treats of imperfect ~happiness, such as can be had in this 346 2, 3 | OBJ 2: Not only is perfect happiness naturally desired, but also ~ 347 2, 3 | Thes. Para. 1/1~Whether happiness consists in the knowledge 348 2, 3 | It would seem that man's happiness consists in the knowledge 349 2, 3 | by which he means final ~happiness. But we can take part in 350 2, 3 | it seems that man's final happiness ~consists in contemplating 351 2, 3 | Therefore man's ~final glory or happiness consists only in the knowledge 352 2, 3 | above (A[6]), man's perfect happiness consists ~not in that which 353 2, 3 | admit a certain imperfect happiness in the contemplation of ~ 354 2, 3 | fitting enough, that man's happiness should consist ~in the contemplation 355 2, 3 | helps ~man to attain to happiness; but he is not the object 356 2, 3 | not the object of man's happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[3] A[7] 357 2, 3 | Para. 1/1~Whether man's happiness consists in the vision of 358 2, 3 | It would seem that man's happiness does not consist in the 359 2, 3 | the intellect, ~namely, happiness, does not consist in God 360 2, 3 | that, Final and perfect happiness can consist in nothing else ~ 361 2, 3 | Consequently, for perfect happiness the intellect needs ~to 362 2, 3 | object, in which alone ~man's happiness consists, as stated above ( 363 2, 3 | wayfarers journeying ~towards happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[3] A[8] 364 2, 3 | that thing. So then in the happiness of God, Who, in understanding 365 2, 4 | THINGS THAT ARE REQUIRED FOR HAPPINESS (EIGHT ARTICLES)~We have 366 2, 4 | things that are required for happiness: ~and concerning this there 367 2, 4 | delight is required for happiness?~(2) Which is of greater 368 2, 4 | is of greater account in happiness, delight or vision?~(3) 369 2, 4 | body is necessary for man's happiness?~(6) Whether any perfection 370 2, 4 | delight is required for happiness?~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[1] 371 2, 4 | delight is not required for happiness. For ~Augustine says (De 372 2, 4 | prize or reward of virtue is happiness, as the ~Philosopher clearly 373 2, 4 | vision is required for happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[1] 374 2, 4 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, happiness is "the most self-sufficient 375 2, 4 | Since then the essence of happiness consists ~in seeing God, 376 2, 4 | delight is not ~necessary for happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[1] 377 2, 4 | the "operation of bliss or happiness should be ~unhindered" ( 378 2, 4 | delight is not necessary for happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[1] 379 2, 4 | says (Confess. x, 23) that happiness is "joy ~in truth."~Aquin.: 380 2, 4 | delight is necessary for happiness. For it is caused by the 381 2, 4 | attained. Wherefore, since happiness is nothing ~else but the 382 2, 4 | Thes. Para. 1/1~Whether in happiness vision ranks before delight?~ 383 2, 4 | 1: It would seem that in happiness, delight ranks before vision. 384 2, 4 | operations. Therefore, in happiness, ~delight ranks before the 385 2, 4 | comprehension is necessary for happiness?~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[3] 386 2, 4 | comprehension is not necessary for happiness. ~For Augustine says (Ad 387 2, 4 | reach God with the mind is happiness, to comprehend Him ~is impossible." 388 2, 4 | is impossible." Therefore happiness is without comprehension.~ 389 2, 4 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, happiness is the perfection of man 390 2, 4 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 3: Further, happiness consists in an operation. 391 2, 4 | Douay: 'obtain']." But happiness is the goal of the spiritual ~ 392 2, 4 | comprehension is necessary for ~Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[3] 393 2, 4 | 1/1~I answer that, Since Happiness consists in gaining the 394 2, 4 | things that are required for Happiness must be gathered from the 395 2, 4 | corresponding ~three in Happiness itself. For perfect knowledge 396 2, 4 | three must concur with ~Happiness; to wit, vision, which is 397 2, 4 | comprehension is ~necessary for Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[3] 398 2, 4 | the will is necessary for happiness?~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[4] 399 2, 4 | will is not necessary for ~Happiness. For Happiness consists 400 2, 4 | necessary for ~Happiness. For Happiness consists essentially in 401 2, 4 | will is not necessary for Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[4] 402 2, 4 | of the will. Therefore ~Happiness, which is the perfect operation 403 2, 4 | virtue, is ~ordained to Happiness as to its end. Therefore, 404 2, 4 | as to its end. Therefore, Happiness once obtained, ~rectitude 405 2, 4 | of will is necessary for Happiness both ~antecedently and concomitantly. 406 2, 4 | therefore none can obtain Happiness, without rectitude of ~the 407 2, 4 | above (Q[3], A[8]), final ~Happiness consists in the vision of 408 2, 4 | Wherefore it is evident that ~Happiness cannot be without a right 409 2, 4 | the intellect which is ~happiness. And consequently right 410 2, 4 | required ~antecedently for happiness, just as the arrow must 411 2, 4 | body is necessary for man's happiness?~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[5] 412 2, 4 | the body is necessary for Happiness. For the ~perfection of 413 2, 4 | perfection of nature. But ~Happiness is the perfection of virtue 414 2, 4 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, Happiness is a perfect operation, 415 2, 4 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 3: Further, Happiness is the perfection of man. 416 2, 4 | body, is not man. Therefore Happiness cannot be in the soul ~separated 417 2, 4 | bliss," in which operation happiness consists, is "not ~hindered." 418 2, 4 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 5: Further, Happiness is the sufficient good and 419 2, 4 | 1/1~OBJ 6: Further, in Happiness man is equal to the angels. 420 2, 4 | Para. 1/3~I answer that, Happiness is twofold; the one is imperfect 421 2, 4 | body is necessary for the happiness of this life. For ~the happiness 422 2, 4 | happiness of this life. For ~the happiness of this life consists in 423 2, 4 | 6],7. Consequently that happiness which ~can be had in this 424 2, 4 | body. But as to ~perfect Happiness, which consists in the vision 425 2, 4 | do not attain to that Happiness until the Day of Judgment, 426 2, 4 | of God, wherein is true Happiness. ~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[ 427 2, 4 | Wherefore, since man's perfect ~Happiness consists in the vision of 428 2, 4 | the perfection of human Happiness, yet it does in the second 429 2, 4 | operation, ~wherein its happiness consists. Hence, Augustine, 430 2, 4 | 35) "whether that perfect Happiness can be ascribed to the ~ 431 2, 4 | 1 Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 1: Happiness is the perfection of the 432 2, 4 | perfection in respect of which ~happiness is due to it, though it 433 2, 4 | 3 Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 3: Happiness belongs to man in respect 434 2, 4 | intellect remains, it can have Happiness. Thus the ~teeth of an Ethiopian, 435 2, 4 | operation is repugnant to Happiness.

For perfection of the body 441 2, 4 | shown above (Q[2]) that Happiness does not consist in bodily ~ 442 2, 4 | is necessary for ~man's Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[6] 443 2, 4 | 1~OBJ 2: Further, man's Happiness consists in the vision of 444 2, 4 | the body is ~necessary for Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[6] 445 2, 4 | perfectly it understands. But Happiness consists in the most perfect ~ 446 2, 4 | the body ~necessary for Happiness. ~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[ 447 2, 4 | Para. 1/1~On the contrary, Happiness is the reward of virtue; 448 2, 4 | the body is ~necessary for Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[6] 449 2, 4 | that, If we speak of that happiness which man can acquire in ~ 450 2, 4 | required for it. For this happiness consists, according to the ~ 451 2, 4 | But speaking of perfect Happiness, some have maintained that 452 2, 4 | of body is necessary for Happiness; indeed, that it is ~necessary 453 2, 4 | and consequently, for that Happiness which ~is in all ways perfect. 454 2, 4 | Consequently, because from ~the Happiness of the soul there will be 455 2, 4 | its ~exceeding fulness of happiness the vigor of incorruption 456 2, 4 | 1 Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 1: Happiness does not consist in bodily 457 2, 4 | charm and perfection to Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[6] 458 2, 4 | goods are necessary for happiness?~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[7] 459 2, 4 | also are necessary for ~Happiness. For that which is promised 460 2, 4 | for reward, belongs to ~Happiness. But external goods are 461 2, 4 | goods are necessary ~for Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[7] 462 2, 4 | Boethius (De Consol. iii): happiness is "a ~state made perfect 463 2, 4 | they too are necessary for ~Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[7] 464 2, 4 | external place is necessary for Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[7] 465 2, 4 | external is necessary for Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[7] 466 2, 4 | answer that, For imperfect happiness, such as can be had in this 467 2, 4 | belonging to the essence of ~happiness, but by serving as instruments 468 2, 4 | serving as instruments to happiness, which consists in ~an operation 469 2, 4 | nowise necessary for perfect ~Happiness, which consists in seeing 470 2, 4 | body: whereas that perfect Happiness ~which consists in seeing 471 2, 4 | nowise necessary for ~that Happiness, since they are ordained 472 2, 4 | likeness of that perfect ~Happiness, therefore it stands in 473 2, 4 | signify the ~delight of Happiness; wealth, the sufficiency 474 2, 4 | spiritual life wherein perfect Happiness consists. ~Nevertheless 475 2, 4 | consists. ~Nevertheless in that Happiness there will be the aggregate 476 2, 4 | Blessed, not as ~a need of Happiness, but by reason of a certain 477 2, 4 | friend is necessary for happiness?~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[8] 478 2, 4 | friends are necessary for Happiness. For ~future Happiness is 479 2, 4 | for Happiness. For ~future Happiness is frequently designated 480 2, 4 | friends is necessary for Happiness.~Aquin.: SMT FS Q[4] A[8] 481 2, 4 | delight is necessary for Happiness.
