Because of reactions from the Internet to that post I need to add a small commentary here. The above statement is a Chinese proverb – not an absolute truth.
As many proverbs, it is a generalisation made out of long-time observation. It seems that ancient Chinese people had a very cynical attitude towards an institution of marriage.
However, the message here is very clear: if we are interested in finding happiness for ourselves only it doesn’t last long. If we want happiness for many – it lasts for us longer. It is not only a very humanistic approach – it is as well very much in tune with teachings of all major philosophical systems active on our planet.
One of the possible explanations of that is: because on unconscious level there is no separation of “I” and “others”, taking care and helping others brings perpetual satisfaction (and never-ending work).
