The grand essentials to happiness in this life are
something to do, something to love,
and something to hope for.
Life is short and we have not too much time
for gladdening the hearts of those who are traveling the dark way with us.
Oh, be swift to love! Make haste to be kind.
-Henri Frederick Amiel
I think you’re very nice.
I think twinkle’s a nice word. So’s viridian.
I knew a woman once who had an imaginary fish.
I have tried too in my time to be a philosopher;
but, I don’t know how, cheerfulness was always breaking in.
