The Four Cardinal Virtues - Dirc van Delft, Walters Manuscript W.171, 1400 A.D.

"What is the good for man? It must be the ultimate end or object of human life: something that is in itself completely satisfying. Happiness fits this description. But what is happiness? If we consider what the function of man is, we find that happiness is a virtuous activity of the soul."

-Aristotle, The Nichomachean Ethics
