Hittite

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others.

Etymology

Coined erroneously in the early 20th century in confusion with the neighbouring Hattites (Hattic) whose language was recorded in discovered texts as hasili. It is now known that the Hittites called themselves nesili (pertaining to the city of Nesa), hence the less popular alternative name Nesite or Neshite.
