- Johann Pestalozzi
Even if happiness forgets you a little bit, never completely forget about it.
If you want to be happy, be.
All persons carry with them some means of happiness.
~James Lendall Basford
Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys. If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it.
What a wonderful life I’ve had! I only wish I’d realized it sooner.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.
