Happiness seems to require a modicum of external prosperity.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
It is the task of a good man to help those in misfortune.
A happy life consists in tranquility of mind.
