Meaning of Let us be of good cheer, however, remembering that the misfortunes hardest to bear are those which never come. :James Russell Lowell
Happiness is a state of mind, a choice, a way of living; it is not something to be achieved, it is something to be experienced.
Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.
I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful.
