My favorite quotes of the day that I post on my Facebook today:
People come, people go – they'll drift in and out of your life, almost like characters in a favorite book. When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures. Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, not the ones from the past.
Nicholas Sparks, The Rescue
Happiness is not about what happens to you - but how you respond/interpret what happens - that's why it's called happiness and not happen-ness - though it could be called hope-ness because you must always leave room for hope that all happens for good cause.
Karen Salmansohn in her best-selling book, How To Be Happy, Dammit
