Your greatest success and happiness in life will be found when you use your natural abilities to their fullest extent. Happiness is not having or being. It’s in the doing.
The essence of true wisdom is to know that rest is rust, and that real life is activity, laughter, and love.
You were created to conquer your environment, to solve problems, and to achieve goals. You’ll find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve.
Yes, there is true happiness. It’s found in doing a job well done, in achieving a worthy goal, in putting your child to sleep, and in writing the last line of your poem.
Your personal growth itself contains the seed of happiness.
