The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.

It all comes back

What would you do today if you knew for certain that every single thing you did would come back to you? How would you treat others if you knew that it would determine how they treated you? What value would you create in the world if you knew that it would also add value to your own life.

The fact is that what you do does indeed come back to you. How could it not? When you genuinely love, you are loved. When you praise others, you are admired. When you teach, you learn. The comfort you give serves to ease your own pain.

When you put value into life it becomes the value you experience in your life. And every moment is your opportunity to do so. You are what you live. There’s no way to cheat the process. It all comes back to you. So use each moment, each golden opportunity to make it great.

— Ralph Marston
