Jean Antoine Petit-Senn

Satirist and poet Jean Antoine Petit-Senn lived in Geneva during the 1800s and spent his days writing sharp satirical commentary. As is the case with many poets, Petit-Senn’s work was not fully appreciated until after his death, leaving him with little financial success during his lifetime. But as he states in this quote, “abundance” need not be measured by the amount of money or things we amass in our lifetime, but rather by the amount of passion, love, and joy we feel. Learning to appreciate what we have over longing for what we don’t brings peace and contentment, which is the secret to happiness.
