If you want to be happy,
Begin where you are,
Don’t wait for some rapture
That’s future and far.
Begin to be joyous, begin to be glad
And soon you’ll forget
That you ever were sad.
Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself. Happiness consists in activity; it’s a running stream, not a stagnant pool: Briggs
Fight on my dear self, fight on.
Life is a struggle; do not shirk struggle,
Enjoy the sweetness of life but do not stop,
Struggle, fight on my dear self.
Do not entertain fear for fear is death,
The world will frighten you,
But fight on, dear self, fight on
