Be happy with what you have and who you are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness. –William E. Gladstone

Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.
