No, you cannot be 'more happier'. You would already be happiest.

^"The" happiest if one was to be "most" happy. "More" happier means simply to be "more happy" or just "happier" from presumably an already happy state. [/Grammar Policing].

My personal philosophy has chiefly been driven by utilitarian principle of Mill/Bentham/Russell. But problem with this is that it has often been misconstrued with hedonistic ones and can often result in carte blanche of free spirited 'do as you feel' behavior.

Pertinent

article is a little long but still well written...

basically to summarize somewhat:
- most of us think happiness is having materials/money, fame/popularity and lots of sex with different people. however those give us temporary satisfaction and fades away, just like drugs...so we try to get more and more of it and end up being unhappy as we chase it.... we use ppl sometimes for our own gain...

(i mean having five gorgeous girls definitely do not have as many happy endings as having 10 right)

we have to think differently on what it is that we want and will truly make us happy.....we should find that 1 sex partnar, we should love ppl family friends anyone and unselfishly give instead of using them, and more importantly we should stop loving materials.....like instead of getting the latest model of tesla, get any ride that gets your commute done ...use materials not love them

i hope u get it now....probably u not gonna agree though...

I think definition of happiness changes with age --

kid years - toys, games, BD winning
teenage years - clothes, gadgets, girls (plural), ignoring family, BD winning
now - money, girl (singular) - love, family, BD winning

The seeker is inheretly weak, and what he seeks (worldly pleasures), is also inheretly weak.

Happiness is being content with whatever you have, accept the fate, and not complain all the time.
