Books are the perfect entertainment. No commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.
Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
Happiness has to do with your mindset, not with outside circumstance.
No one can have whatever he wants. What he can do is not want what he doesn’t have, and cheerfully enjoy what comes his way.
You cannot break up with yourself. You cannot grow apart from yourselkf. You cannot escape yourself. Even if you have a great deal of insecurities right now, you are going to have to learn to love yourself, because you are not going anywhere.
Don’t waste time to get temporary happiness. Work hard to get permanent.
How do you overcome the suffering of life? Be a better person.
