If you're not having fun, you're doing something wrong.
Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.
Happiness can exist only in acceptance.
God is a community of persons and He has created you in His image, not as an isolated individual, but as a person whom He has invited to a communal life with Himself and with the whole human family.
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.

It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.
Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.

We were together. I forget the rest.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
