“Part of the

happiness of life

consists not in

fighting battles,

but in avoiding them.

A masterly retreat

is in itself a victory.”


~ Norman Vincent Peale


Most battles are ego driven, selfish,

self-centered desires which will benefit no one.

Stubborn, bull-headed, mean, lazy or ignorant

do not constitute good reasons to start a crusade.

Compromise, there is usually a better way.

Today, if you feel that you must fight,

pick a cause that will benefit the whole world.

Remember, even Jesus found it necessary

to confront the money changers in the temple.

Happiness is avoiding the battles.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
