Q.10. What is the secret of a happy life ?

Ans. It is a well known fact that ‘Wants’ are unlimited. No man can get all what he desires. It means “Wants’ can’t be ended, so we will have to control over our desires. Contentment gives us peace and happy life.


Q.11. The poet thinks that those who are contented with what they have are happy men. Do you agree? Give reasons.

Ans. Yes, I agree with the above statement. We know that “Desire’ has no end. If a man gets his one desire satisfied, another must arise in his mind. It is a vicious circle that goes and goes and never ends. Therefore it is better to be satisfied what we have or what we can earn with our hard work.


Q.12. Is the title of the poem is justified? Can you suggest any other title? Give reasons for your choice.

Ans. The title of the poem is justified. In this poem, the poet has presented a peaceful life which is possible only when a man feels himself alone. He has no desire, no greed, Then only the life may be peaceful. Yes, I can suggest an apt title ‘Quiet Life’. When the life is quiet, we will get all pleasures what a man desires.


Q. 13. Why does the poet want to live and die stealthily from the world? How many of you would like to do so? And Why ? Or, How does Alexander Pope want to live alone ?

Ans. The poet thinks that life has now become restless due to more population and desire of getting more and more. If a man controls his greed and wants, he must get a happy life. That’s why the poet wants to live unseen and unknown and die unlamented. Most of us don’t want so because we always try to get fame.


Q.14. What does the speaker mean by Together mixed sweet recreation. Can these things be mixed? Have you ever tried to do so ?

Ans. The speaker wants to say that work is essential for getting our goal. But more work makes a man tired. Recreation gives us fresh energy which once more makes us ready to work heartly. If both are mixed in a balanced way, the life of a man would be happy. So, I always do so; not only trying to do so.
