I Answered Yes

Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose — a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.   ~Mary Shelley

I don't know Who — or what — put the question, I don't know when it was put. I don't even remember answering. But at some moment I did answer Yes to Someone — or Something — and from that hour I was certain that existence is meaningful and that, therefore, my life, in self-surrender, had a goal.   ~Dag Hammarskjöld

The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.   ~Allan K. Chalmers

 We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.   ~Fredrick Koeing
