How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings
good tidings,
who publishes peace, who brings good
tidings of good,
who publishes salvation,
who says to Zion, "Your God reigns."
Hark, your watchmen lift up their voice,
together they sing for joy;
for eye to eye they see
the return of the Lord unto Zion.
Break forth together into singing,
you waste places of Jerusalem;
for the Lord has comforted his people,
he has redeemed Jerusalem.
The Lord has bared his holy arm
before the eyes of all the nations;
and all the ends of the earth shall see
the salvation of our God.

Isaiah 52: 7-10
Holy Bible, Revised Standard Version

As the apple is not the cause of the apple tree,
but a fruit of it; even so good works are not
the cause of our salvation, but the sign and a
fruit of the same.

Daniel Cawdray

For us to be happy, we need to water the seed of mindfulness
that is in us. Mindfulness is the seed of enlightenment,
awareness, understanding, care, compassion, liberation,
transformation, and healing. If we practice mindfulness, we
get in touch with the refreshing and joyful aspects of life
in us and around us, the things we are not able to touch
when we live in forgetfulness. Mindfulness makes things
like our eyes, our heart, our non-toothache, the beautiful
moon, and the trees deeper and more beautiful. If we
touch these wonderful things with mindfulness, they
will reveal their full splendor.

Thich Nhat Hanh (1926-   )
Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, teacher and author

__________

If man is not made for God,
why is he happy only in God?

Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
French mathematician, physicist and religious philosopher

______

Happiness is when what you think,
what you say,
and what you do are in harmony.

Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)
Indian, major political and spiritual leader

______

Happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected.
--George Washington
________

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds up to be.
--Abraham Lincoln

 


And now the Last Word:

Surely God would not have created such
a being as man, with an ability to grasp
the infinite, to exist only for a day.
No, no, man was made for immortality.

Abraham Lincoln
