Promise Yourself -author unknown

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to everyone you meet.

To make all your friends feel there is something special in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only with the best and expect only the best.

To be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and to press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the

presence of trouble.

Happiness

Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence – Aristotle

Everyone, without exception, is searching for happiness – Blaise Pascal

Live all you can; it’s a mistake not to. It ddoesn’t so much matter what you do in particular, so long as you have your life. If you haven’t had that, what have you had? – Henry James

Men are made for happiness, and anyone who is completely happy has a right to say to himself: “I am going God’d will on earth – Anton Chekhov

Different people seek happiness in different ways and by different means -Aristotle

Nine requisites for contented living: Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength to battle with difficulties and overcome them. Grace enough to confess your sins and forsake them. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbour. Love eough to move you to be useful and helpfl to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future. – Johann von Goethe

It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere – Agnes Repplier

Friendship

We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower, that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known that immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language holds its peace in impotence. – Joseph Roux

Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of God’s best gifts. It involves many things, but above all, the power of getting out of one’s self, and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another.- Thimas Hughes

True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable. -Dave Tyson Gentry

Women can forma friendship with a man very well, but to preserve it, a slight physical antipathy most probably helps. -Friedrich Nietzsche

The only way to be a true friend is to be one. Friendship implies loyalty, esteem, cordiality, sympathy, affection, readiness to aid, to help, to stick, to right for, if need be… Radiate friendship and it will return sevenfold. – B.C. Forbes

A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they’re not so good, and sympathizes with your probems when they’re not so bad. – Arnold H. Glasow

The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. – Elizabeth Foley

The reward of friendship is itself. The man who hopes for anything else does not understand what friendship is. – Saint Alfred of Rievaulx

Faith

Faith is to believe what we do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what we believe. Saint Augustine
