There is only one way to happiness, and that is to cease worrying things which are beyond the power of our will.
Epictetus (c. 50 - 120)
You're happiest while you're making the greatest contribution.
Try to be happy in this present moment, and put not off being so to a time to come,—as though that time should be of another make from this which has already come and is ours.
Thomas Fuller (1608 - 1661)
When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
Helen Keller (1880 - 1968)
