                      It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.

                            If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.

                              You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.

                                Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.

                                    When we hate our enemies, we are giving them power over us: power over our sleep, our appetites, our blood pressure, our health and our happiness. Our enemies would dance with joy if only they knew how they were worrying us, lacerating us, and getting even with us! Our hate is not hurting them at all, but our hate is turning our days and nights into a hellish turmoil.

                                          Gentlemen have talked a great deal of patriotism. A venerable word, when duly practiced.

                                              One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

                                                The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way.

                                                  Happiness doesn't depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.
