Sweet Persuasion Of Rhetoric And The Grace Of Music

Satisfactory Essays

Philosophy states that she will use the “sweet persuasion of rhetoric” and the “grace of Music” to ease his soul. She reminds him that things can get better—have hope. Finally, she observes that people will never stop complaining, no matter how good they have it or what God has given them. People have insatiable desires. She states that Boethius shouldn't look for happiness in external things anyway—he must look for it within himself. True happiness is not found in the things of chance and change, but in what can be controlled, and the only thing we can control is our own self. Fortune cannot take our self away from us; therefore we should look for happiness within our soul.
