Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are
something to do,
something to love,
and something to hope for.
- Joseph Addison
If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought,
happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
- The Buddha
We are all connected to everyone and everything in the universe.
Therefore, everything one does as an individual affects the whole.
All thoughts, words, images, prayers, blessings, and deeds
are listened to by all that is.
- Serge Kahili King
Happiness blooms in the presence of self-respect and the absence of ego.
Love everyone around you.
Love everyone in the whole world.
Know that your own life is of infinite importance, as is every other life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
The quotes above are one of Jonathan Lockwood Huie’s daily inspirations.
