Here is what Abraham Lincoln thought about it.
Said he, “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” I can agree with that. Said Aristotle, “Happiness depends upon ourselves.”
It seems he agrees with our former President pretty much.
One of my favorite Actors, Harrison Ford says this.
“Being happy is something you have to learn. I often surprise myself by saying, ‘wow, this is it. I guess I’m happy. I got a home I love a career that I love. I’m even feeling more and more at peace with myself.’ If there’s something else to happiness, let me know. I’m ambitious for that, too.”
Says comedian Bob Newhart,
“Oh God, enjoy it.”
The following quote is one that this old man has no trouble identifying with. It comes from Christopher Morley who said it this way.
“Cherish all your happy moments: they make a fine cushion for old age.”
