Quote of the Day: Happiness


“The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue
happiness. You have to catch it yourself.” - Benjamin Franklin

Too often people think they ought to be handed what they want, what they need, to be happy. It is my right, they say, to be happy.

Let me tell them, life doesn't work that way. Too often, it is fair to say, people are held back unfairly, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't keep trying: trying to overcome their obstacles, trying to achieve victory over them.

Because the rewards in life are worth the sweat and pains to get them.
