Happiness

The easiest thing to accomplish in life is unhappiness.

Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.

A child of God should be serious without being sour, and happy without being foolish.

In the struggle of life. cheerful fearfulnes is a grand assistance. — Spurgeon

People rarely succeed at anything unless they have fun doing it.

Happiness comes through doors you didn’t even know you had left open.

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

A smile is the light in the window of your face that tells people your heart is at home.

A smile is a curve that can set a lot of things straight.

The true secret of happiness is to live in the NOW–not to be forever regretting the past, or anticipating the future–but to get the most you can out of this very instant.

He who binds himself a joy does the winged life destroy.
But he who kisses the joy as it flies lives in eternity’s sun rise.
—  William Blake, poet and painter (1757 – 1827)

The world is a looking glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it and it in turn will look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly, kind companion.
–William Makepeace Thackery

Rejoice In The Lord Always
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
— Philippians 4: 4-8
