Book Description:
Die Frage ist also: wie man es dahin bringe, daß das Gemüth immer seinen gleichmäßigen und ungestörten Gang gehe, mit sich selbst zufrieden sey und seinen eigenen Zustand mit Vergnügen anschaue, und daß es diese Freude nicht unterbreche, sondern in dieser Gelassenheit verbleibe, ohne sich je zu erheben, noch herabzustimmen. (aus dem Text)
