Lady Philosophy tells us that we seek happiness through wealth (because we think it will lead to self-sufficiency), we seek happiness through public office (because we think it will lead to respect), we seek happiness through kingship (because we think it will lead to power), we seek happiness through celebrity (because we think it will lead to renown) and we seek happiness through pleasure (because we think it will lead to joy) Routledge History of Philosophy. Salvation requires the grace of “final perseverance”, i.e. the grace of being in friendship with God at the moment of death. Some who live well for most of their lives may fall away at the very end.

Confucius, illustrated in Myths & Legends of China, 1922, by E. Philosophy has had a tremendous effect on Chinese civilization, and throughout East Asia Aquinas on Mind (Topics in Medieval Philosophy).
