Character is the basis of happiness and happiness the sanction of character.

Your highest goodness

You cannot take more than you give. It is impossible to sustain for longer than the blink of an eye.

You can, however, give more than you take. And that is what makes your experience of living so beautiful.

Value exists for you to the extent you invest yourself in it. Fulfillment is generated by what you do with what you have, not by what you seize or possess.

You cannot sneak past the necessity of providing a contribution to each day. The desire to make a difference is part of you, and the more readily you embrace it, the better.

Don’t spin your wheels in a futile attempt to gain something for nothing. See that the gain is in the doing, and do.

Let go of what frustrates you and let in what empowers and fulfills you. Give your highest goodness and effort to life, and know how good life can be.

— Ralph Marston
