Everything is material for the seed of happiness, if you look into it with inquisitiveness and curiosity.

Give joy to life

The way to reliably experience joy is not to seek it. The way to reliably experience joy is to give it.

You have little control over whether or not joy comes to you. Yet you have complete control over the joy that comes from you.

Don’t try to guess in advance what situations may or may not bring joy your way. Instead, live with the assumption that joy is possible at any time, in any situation.

Don’t depend on success to bring you joy. Live with joy in every moment, and delight in the amazing, overwhelming success it brings into your life.

Whatever you do, you’ll do it better with a joyful heart. The reason joy feels so good is because it is so good and right for you.

Instantly make the world a better place by putting a genuine smile on your face. Give joy to life and get real richness in return.

— Ralph Marston
