When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be.
Instead of complaining that the rose bush is full of thorns, be happy that the thorn bush has roses.
I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do.
He who laughs last doesn’t get it.
Whatever you lost through the stroke of destiny, know it was to save you from adversity. One small affliction keeps off greater afflictions; one small loss prevents greater losses.
Life’s curveballs are thrown for a reason – to shift your path in a direction that is meant for you.
