Happiness is only attainable through useful efforts. The best way
to help us is to help others. Most people measure their happiness
in terms of physical pleasure and material possession. But happiness
does not depend on worldly pleasures. It comes from the heart within.
We must be happy despite deprivation, if our happiness is so deep
and thoughtful it can become a philosophy of life. Although the world
is full of suffering, it is also full of solutions to over come suffering.
Optimism helps because it leads to achievement. Optimism does not
rest on the absence of evil, but on a glad belief in the prepondence of
good and willing effort always to co-operate with the good in all of us,
so that goodness prevails. But life doesn't give you and opportunity to
show to the world that side of you. If you are going to write something
for the world, you might as well show your happier side. It is nice to be
remembered as a happy person. There is so much life to enjoy and it
helps to remind that, there is a rainbow with a pot of gold at the end of it.
