- We are continually encouraged to strive for very external symbols of accomplishment. Stop reading those magazines and watching TV!
- Practicing mindfulness helps us learn to appreciate the well-being that is already there. With mindfulness, we treasure our happiness and can make it last longer.
- To watch the corn grow, and the blossoms set; to draw hard breath over plowshare or spade; to read, to think, to love, to hope, to pray - these are the things that make men happy.
