“In daily life

we must see that

it is not happiness

that makes us grateful,

but gratefulness

that makes us happy.”


~ Brother David Steindl-Rast


Entitlement: the fact of having a right to something,

the prerogative, claim, permission, dispensation

or the special privilege one expects without having

to earn that right.

Happiness is not an entitlement.

Do something; smile, love, laugh, share,

be the person God wants you to be

and do something that will make this world

a better place for all.

Happiness is the benefit of being grateful.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
