"True happiness lies within the soul and never without the body. It cannot be touched, yet is felt by all whom it touches.
True happiness enables one to enjoy the present without anxious thought and dependence on the future. It enables one to live a lifetime in one moment of contentment.
It is found in freedom and fulfilment and we achieve it when we squander ourselves for a purpose that we know to be beneficial to others.
True happiness cannot exist in splendid isolation as it requires to be shared by others to grow. It has to be released from self if it is to be increased in others. There would be no point of a heaven were no one else but God allowed entry. True happiness is a state of mind and comes from the joys of deeds well done for the lasting benefit of more than self."
