A Quote by George L. Brown on business, joy, life, and unhappiness

Life is too short to be unhappy in business. If business were not a part of the joy of living, we might almost say that we have no right to live, because it is a pretty poor man who cannot get into the line for which he is fitted.

A Quote by G. N. Breed Brookings on action, change, competence, heaven, ideas, learning, life, pleasure, schools, and unhappiness

During our short sojourn here we are constantly changing. There is no such a thing as remaining always the same in any particular element. Our thoughts change. Our actions are not the same today as they were yesterday. We are constantly gathering new ideas, either bettering our lives, or making ourselves more unhappy. Collecting the beauties and sweets of this life is like gathering favorite roses from among the tangled briars. We pay dearly for the pleasure of having them. Yet we are told that this is but a "preparatory school," and the lessons we learn here are to make us more competent to enter into the higher departments of heaven. Let us strive on.
