A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love, and well-being.
Hope is the mainspring of human action; faith seals our lease of immortality; and charity and love give the passport to the soul's true and lasting happiness.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.
