It is the task of a good man to help those in misfortune.
A man is never as big as when he is on his knees to help a child.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
Man's real life is happy, chiefly because he is ever expecting that it soon will be so.
Learn to value yourself, which means: fight for your happiness.
But happiness is no respecter of persons.
Should not the giver be thankful that the receiver received? Is not giving a need? Is not receiving, mercy?
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
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.
Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.

It is necessary to help others, not only in our prayers, but in our daily lives. If we find we cannot help others, the least we can do is to desist from harming them.
Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
The intention that man should be happy is not in the plan of Creation.
Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion.
You see, antiquated ideas of kindness and generosity are simply bugs that must be programmed out of our world. And these cold, unfeeling machines will show us the way.
Be kind whenever possible.It is always possible.
If you deliberately set out to be less than you are capable, you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.
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 for a reason is just another form of misery because the reason can be taken away from us at any time.
