"We must dig for happiness in the recall of our experiences in order to taste time anew.
Time is like a river's flow in the passage of one's travels; once passed, it can never be re-captured in precise form though it mat revisit familiar ground. That is why it is wise to live for the moment from whence the greatest enjoyment has always sprung.
Do not get yourself so busy making a living that you finish up not having a life to live or in the pursuit and acquisition of amassing more meaningless things around you, that in your engagement of 'having all' you finish up with nothing at all of significant worth. If it's constancy and unqualified love that you most need in your life right now, then such can be found in the presence of any domesticated animal and comforting pet. If it's sheer beauty that your eyes crave for, then look no farther than what nature has to offer and feast your eyes on her spectacular array of seasonal colour, texture and living change. If it's wealth you seek, then better look to your continued good health and respectful daily attitude for the world and its creatures.
Ask not what is possible to have; instead ask what you are capable of giving. Profound happiness is most unlikely to fall at your feet through the mere wishing or asking for it. You will need to go out into your daily life and the life of others and dig for it!" William Forde: September 27th, 2014.
