"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have."
"Everyone chases after happiness, not noticing that happiness is right at their heels."
"The secret of contentment is knowing how to enjoy what you have, and to be able to lose all desire for things beyond your reach."
"Patience is the key to contentment."
"Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart."
