Freedom, Happiness, Peace of mind

3 February 2009

My quote for the day:

"There is a wonderful, mystical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life - happiness, freedom and peace of mind - are always attained by giving them to someone else"

Giving someone even one of these three things is one of the simplest and most beautiful ways to make others happy and thereby make yourself happy. For what are we to each other if we cannot make each other happy, cannot give someone else the freedom to be themselves, or cannot simply make their day more serene by taking away their worries?

Today, be humble and just try and make someone happy before yourself, give them the chance to do something they want to that you might not want to do, and do the dishes or the laundry or something that will give them peace of mind!
