Eudemonia

Hey, a new word AND a good quote in today’s AWAD mailing:

eude­mo­nia (yoo-di-MO-nee-uh) noun, also eudaemonia
1. A state of hap­pi­ness and well-being.
2. In Aris­totelian phi­los­o­phy, hap­pi­ness in a life of activity
gov­erned by reason.

It occurs to me that I know far more words per­tain­ing to unhap­py states than hap­py ones, so it’s good to add a pos­i­tive term to my vocabulary.

Him that I love, I wish to be free—even from me.
‑Anne Mor­row Lind­bergh, writer (1906–2001)
