“ Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved! That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly. It is the one thing we are interested in here. ”

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
Things that matter are not easy. Feelings of happiness are easy. Happiness is not. Flirting is easy. Love is not. Saying you're friends is easy. Being friends is not.
Be the reason someone smiles. Be the reason someone feels loved and believes in the goodness in people.
My happiness is not the means to any end. It is the end. It is its own goal. It is its own purpose.
