Book of Good Cheer
JUST BEING HAPPY
UST being happy is a fine thing to do;
Is largely in the choosing,
And just being happy is brave work and true.
Just being happy helps other souls along;
By just being happy with a heart full of song.
OW I get me up to work,
I pray the Lord I may not shirk;
I pray the Lord my work's done right.
AM bigger than anything that can happen to me. All these things, sorrow, misfortune and suffering, are outside my door. I am in the house and I have the key.
AT less; breathe more.
-Charles F. Lummis.
T is not raining rain to me,
In every dimpled drop I see
The clouds of gray engulf the day.
It is not raining rain to me,
But fields of clover bloom,
A fig for him who frets!
HINK not on Yesterday, nor trouble borrow
WIXT optimist and pessimist the difference is droll; The optimist sees the doughnut, the pessimist the hole.
THE TASK OF HAPPINESS
In my great task of happiness;
And to my dead heart run them in!
-Robert Louis Stevenson.
HEN the outlook is not good, try the uplook.
ON'T worry about your work. Do what you can, let the rest go, and smile all the time.
HE wealth of a man is the number of things he loves and blesses, which he is loved and blessed by.
O give pleasure to a single heart by a single kind act is better than a thousand head-bowings in prayer.
