John Mason Good
Happiness consists in activity. It is a running steam, not a stagnant pool.
Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
He who enjoys doing and enjoys what he has done is happy.
We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we've established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
B. R. Hayden
