Be joyful because it is humanly possible.
Unless you make a daily effort to see the world as God sees it, you will never get beyond mere appearances.
Beauty is the promise of happiness.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
