eudaimonia: ‘true’ or ‘real’ happiness; the sort of happiness worth seeking or having; virtues guarantee a happy life...everything the soul endeavors or endures under the guidance of wisdom ends in happiness (Meno 88C) of a soul; when a soul has been properly cared for and perfected it possesses the virtues; life is not worth living if the soul is ruined by wrong doing; a person who is not virtuous cannot be happy and a person with virtue cannot fail to be happy...virtues such as self-control, courage, justice, piety, wisdom and related qualities of mind and soul are absolutely crucial if a person is to lead a good and happy life (Socrates).
