Money or happiness: which is more valuable?
Success or failure: which is more destructive?
If you look to others for fulfillment,
you will never truly be fulfilled.
If your happiness depends on money,

Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize that nothing is lacking,
the whole world belongs to you!

such are the times.

It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do.
It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.
W. C. Fields
Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.
The fruit of silence is prayer.
The fruit of prayer is faith.
The fruit of faith is love.
The fruit of love is service.
The fruit of service is peace.
Almost anything you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.
