The Secret of Happiness

Montaigne, Essays 1.40 (tr. E.J. Trechmann):
Every man is well or badly off as he thinks himself to be. The man is content who believes himself to be content, not he whom the world believes to be so. And that belief alone makes it real and true.

Chascun est bien ou mal, selon qu'il s'en trouve. Non de qui on le croid, mais qui le croid de soy, est content: et en cella seul la creance se donne essence et verité.
