It is pretty hard to tell what does bring happiness; poverty and wealth have both failed.
The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
Allan K. Chalmers
When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.
Let us not be content to wait and see what will happen, but give us the determination to make the right things happen.
Any so-called material thing that you want is merely a symbol: you want it not for itself, but because it will content your spirit for the moment.
Until you make peace with who you are, you'll never be content with what you have.
The secret of inner peace is contentement; consciously holding happy thoughts.
J. Donald Walters, Secrets of Inner Peace
Contentment does not mean that we never want to see change or improvement, but it does mean that we will do the best we can with what we have. It also means that we will maintain attitude that allows us to enjoy the gift of life.
