Happiest Days
Poet: Edward H. Donnelly


I said to the little children,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And their bright eyes opened wider In innocent amaze.
For their happiness was so perfect,
They did not know it then;
"Oh, no," they said, "there'll be happier days
When we are women and men."

I said to the youth and maiden,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And into their sparkling eyes there crept
A dreamy, far-off gaze;
And their hands sought one another,
And their cheeks flushed rosy red;
" Oh, no," they said, " there'll be happier days
For us when we are wed."

I said to the man and woman,
"You are living your happiest days,"
As they laughingly watched together
Their baby's cunning ways.
"These days are days of labor.
They can hardly be our best;
There'll be happier days when the children are grown,
And we have earned our rest."

I said to the aged couple,
"You are living your happiest days,"
Your children do you honor,
You have won success and praise.
" With a peaceful look they answered,
"God is good to us, that's true: But we think there are happier days for us
In the life we're going to."


And it is your attitude, not your achievements, that gives you happiness... John Maxwell
"And it is your attitude, not your achievements, that gives you happiness and is contagious in its positive impact on others."

A Rule For Happiness
Poet: Unknown

Live right! Be pure! With conscience clear,
Have nought to fear from year to year.
Be quick to lend a helping hand
To suffering ones throughout the land.
Take this old world as it is;
Make the best of it you can.
Love not riches, honor, fame,
But love the more your fellowman.
Seek joy in every path you tread;
Be sure of love before you wed.
Trust everything to love divine;
True happiness will then be thine.


Use your talents and brains and personality to make life better for someone else.  Nick Vujicic
"My best advice for finding inner happiness is to reach outside yourself, to use your talents and brains and personality to make life better for someone else."

Thinking Happiness
Poet: Robert E Farley

Think of the things that make you happy,
Not the things that make you sad;
Think of the kind and true in mankind,
Not its sordid side and bad;
Think of the blessings that surround you,
Not the ones that are denied;
Think of the virtues of your friendships,
Not the weak and faulty side;

Think of the gains you've made in business,
Not the losses you've incurred;
Think of the good of you that's spoken,
Not some cruel, hostile word;
Think of the days of health and pleasure,
Not the days of woe and pain;
Think of the days alive with sunshine,
Not the dismal days of rain;

Think of the hopes that lie before you,
Not the waste that lies behind you;
Think of the treasures you have gathered,
Not the ones you've failed to find;
Think of the service you may render,
Not of serving self alone;
Think of the happiness of others
And in this you'll find your own.

Think of the happiness of others  And in this you'll find your own.
"Think of the happiness of others and in this you'll find your own."
Robert E Farley
