Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. True happiness arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one's self, and in the next, from the friendship and conversation of a few select companions. Happiness is a positive cash flow. Call no man happy till he is dead Happy is the son whose faith in his mother remains unchallenged. It isn't necessary to be rich and famous to be happy. It's only necessary to be rich To live we must conquer incessantly, we must have the courage to be happy. Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention. No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.
