Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

Men talk about Bible miracles because there is no miracle in their lives. Cease to gnaw that crust. There is ripe fruit over your head.

A man is rich in proportion to the things he can afford to let alone.

Sweep away the clutter of things that complicate our lives.
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost, that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.
If a man does not keep pace with his companion, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
The cart before the horse is neither beautiful nor useful.
It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?
Our life is frittered away by detail.
