“We find greatest joy, not in getting, but in expressing what we are. Men do not really live for honors or for pay; their gladness is not the taking and holding, but in doing, the striving, the building, the living. It is a higher joy to teach than to be taught. It is good to get justice, but better to do it; fun to have things but more to make them. The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself.”
This is very broad and profound and each sentence is worth mulling over and evaluating how one chooses to live their life. I’m going to take a couple days and really dig into each of these and see where I “score.” The last sentence is so great. “The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself.”
Are you a happy man (or woman)?
