    aren`t the first and the last basically the same thing

    I think the implication is that "have fun" is a short-term active thing and "strive to be happy" is an ongoing process for your life in general. So you might, for example, spend a couple of hours having fun bowling with some friends, but you`d strive to be happy as a general outlook on life, including in between periods of having fun.

    Pretty good, but it doesn`t include positive obligations to other people, only negative obligations.

    Why make others make you happy when you can spend less energy making yourself happy? :)

    ummkay.. but i think "do not accept defeat" is controversial. for example: i loved a man so much, i gave up my friends, my school, my home for him. but he treated me like a slave. kept seeing other girls, not answering ANY of my questions, using drugs, etc. in the end i gave up on him. but i still love him crazy. i sorta got back to my old life (with friends, school, home) but i can`t forget him. and he doesn`t even love me at all. according to this, i should never give up on him till the day a earned his love?

    Depends entirely on your definition of defeat. Recognising a dick for a dick, early on, is a victory, not a defeat. You go, girl.

    Agreed with Opie.

    The ordering is important.

    Take Dexter for example. He
    1) Hurts people.
    2) Has fun.
    3) Strives to be happy.
    4) Doesn`t accept defeat.

    Now. If he chose not to hurt people, he wouldn`t have fun, would be accepting defeat, and wouldn`t be striving to be happy (though striving is open to interpretation).

    He effectively has a choice of 1/4 or 3/4, with the 3/4 making him a serial killer.

    Oh to young and blissfully ingnorant. Strive though you may, you`ll never be happy. And no matter what you do, someone is gonna get hurt. you`ll give in to crushing defeat soon enough. Have fun!

    accepting the way he treated you was accepting defeat. Leaving him enlightened you.

    These are more like American life instructions. Some other cultures do not recognize these.

    Yet, our world would not have been so great if it wasn`t for those who did not have fun, who did not strive to be happy, and who hurt others.

    Are you saying...that our world is great?! The hell?! The only great thing about this world is Nature.

    According to this, you shouldn`t accept defeat. The question is then what is defeat in that context? I think that defeat in that context would be ruining your life by failing to leave a bad relationship that you know is a mistake.

    Are you saying...that our world is great?! The hell?! The only great thing about this world is Nature.

    So you worship nature (you capitalise it and idolise is, so I`m assuming you worship it) and denigrate humanity (presumably from your own lack of self esteem).

    You`re wrong on two counts.

    i) Humanity is part of nature.
    ii) There is tremendous greatness in humanity. Awesome, beautiful wonder in the complexity of the human mind and the general striving to get along despite circumstances alien to our primitive impulses (humans are wired for small groups, not vast hordes crammed together in an urban environment). A bunch of apes striving to understand the universe. The pinnacle of billions of years of evolution. The creativity of art. Humanity is awesome.

    Its time for some stereotyping...

    These are more like American life instructions

    No, the American instructions are:
    "Get laid"
    "Make money"
    "Get a gun"
    "Pray"
