This is what I feel like, and sometimes I yield to it. — Albert Camus

Lie down again and resume the uneasy doze which you call your existence. — Arnold Bennett

How can we love days that are filled with sorrow? We can't-at least not in the moment. I don't think my mother was suggesting that we suppress discouragement or deny the reality of pain.

But I do believe that the way we react to adversity can be a major factor in how happy and successful we can be in life. — Joseph B. Wirthlin

We speak much of the duty of making others happy. No day should pass, we say, on which we do not put a little cheer into some discouraged heart, make the path a little smoother for someone’s tired feet, or help some fainting robin unto its nest again. This is right. We cannot put too great emphasis upon the duty of giving happiness and cheer to others. But it is no less a duty that we should be happy and cheerful ourselves. — J.R. Miller

To do well those thing which God ordained to be the common lot of all man-kind, is the truest greatness.
