H a p p i n e s s Happiness is a myth we seek, If manifested surely irks; Like river speeding to the plain , On its arrival slows and murks . For man is happy only in His aspiration to the heights; When he attains his goal, he cools And longs for other distant flights. If you should meet a happy one Who is contented with his lot, Unlike the rest of all mankind, Pray his Nirvana disturb not. - Kahlil Gibran Motivation

HAPPINESS I ASKED the professors who teach the meaning of life to tell me what is happiness. And I went to famous executives who boss the work of thousands of men. They all shook their heads and gave me a smile as though I was trying to fool with them And then one Sunday afternoon I wandered out along the Desplaines river And I saw a crowd of Hungarians under the trees with their women and children and a keg of beer and an accordion. -Carl Sanburg
