Meaning of Men’s best successes come after their disappointments. :Henry Ward Beecher
For what are the words with which to summarize a lifetime, so much crowded confused happiness terminated by such stark slow-motion pain?”
I don’t know whether it is beautiful or sad, that I find such blissful happiness within the confines of my own mind, more so than I do in the reality that surrounds me.
When we recall the past, we usually find that it is the simplest things – not the great occasions – that in retrospect give off the greatest glow of happiness.
Always find opportunities to make someone smile, and to offer random acts of kindness in everyday life.
How I wish that somewhere there existed an island for those who are wise and of goodwill! In such a place even I would be an ardent patriot.
